"Give Me Back My Heart" as written by Jann Arden Richards and Robert Foster....
Give me back my heart
It was never mine to give away
It's been taken apart, one too many times
And now the pieces won't fit into place

The truth is, I know how to lie
I lie to myself all the time
I told you, you could have it
But I was out of my mind
You can have any other part of me
But please give me back my heart

Hearts and arrows, drawn in the snow
Heaven's Angels lay down their bows
Love is weary, love is worn out
Please give back my heart

I finally fell asleep last night
I had no lover's serenade
A crescent moon had ripped the sky
And stars were falling from my eyes
A tear-soaked lullaby

God was busy healing baby's bruises
God was busy answering prayers
God was busy cleaning a wounded earth
God was busy picking you off the ground

Hearts and arrows, drawn in the snow
Heaven's Angels lay down their bows
Love is weary, love is worn out
Please give back my heart

Hearts and arrows, out in the snow
Heaven's Angels lay down their bows
Love is weary, love is worn out
Please give back my heart

Please give back my heart
Please give back my heart
Please give back my heart

I finally fell asleep last night

    General CommentThis is probably one of the most personal songs I've ever heard. The way it's written seems to me like the inner thoughts of the mind, not something stated to someone else. A silent plea.

    The lyrics and music are haunting. The sound of desolation.

    This song is about the fact that love does not last forever. You can give someone all you have - all you are - and still it ends. And that time is the loneliest time in life. After the anger and the tears, all you're left with is the need to find yourself again - to reclaim the bits of yourself that you have lost. Your happiness, your faith, and your heart.
