Do you want to know
If everything glittering
Will turn into the gold
I see in your hair
I feel it could be there
Somehow, tonight

And do you want to find
Something worth saving
The change would do me right
Cause I've been just waiting
And hesitating
With this heart of mine

You're still a mystery
But there's something so easy
In how you're sweet to me
I feel completed
Like it's something I needed
For this heart of mine

There's always something so tragic
About a hopeless romantic

So though we cannot know
If everything glittering
Will turn into the gold
I'm through with waiting
And hesitating
I want you taking
This heart of mine
Heart of mine
Heart of mine

    General Commentthis song is pretty much about a guy who's always been afraid to "give his heart away", or say things like "i love you" because he doesn't like to be vulnerable, and he doesn't want it to go to waste, doesn't want to give his heart away if it's not going to last (maybe he doesn't want to get hurt)... but then he finds this girl who he likes, and he doesn't really care any more whether it's going to last or not, because he's fine with just feeling that little bit of happiness

    General Commentterrific song. I fall in love every time I hear it. the basic gist is "I don't know you that well, but I think you're sweet. I'd like to step it up to the next level; even if it doesn't work out, I think it'd be worth it..." Only, salett says it much better than I do. :)

    General CommentThere's always something so tragic
    About a hopeless romantic

    I first heard this song while I was watching the movie "Keeping the Faith" so I ran to the computer and downloaded it while it was still in my head. It's so beautiful and truthful... being a hopeless romantic myself, I can definately agree with the tragic part!! Oh how I love Peter Salett. If you like this song, check out Magdalene. It's awesome too!
