Part Of A Heart

Words and Music: © 2006 by Tom Smith
Style pastiches are lots of fun. The person who commssioned this wanted something Phil Collins-ish.

Never been all that good with emotions,
Never learned to make my feelings known,
Always seemed to be going through the motions,
Always thought I'd end up alone.

Never knew how hard it was to manage,
Never knew how hard it was to care,
Until I found myself with one advantage:
The simple fact that you were there.

It's like I had
Part of a heart, I was waiting for the rest,
And I wondered what the problem was, was this some kind of test?
Part of a heart, barely beating on its own,
But if I could find the other parts, I'd never be alone.

Never knew that I'd had no exemption,
Never felt it coming on at all,
Always thought I'd gotten my redemption,
Never guessed that I might take a fall.

Never knew I'd feel such pain inside me,
Never knew the end could be so near,
Always knew you you'd be right there beside me,
Never said how glad I was you were here.

It's like I had
Part of a heart, and how was I to know?
They could heal the broken vessel, but the feelings wouldn't flow.
Part of a heart, I was missing part of me,
And there aren't the words to thank you for your love and loyalty.

I was so scared of losing everything I had,
I realize... that I ain't no saint.
You kept on loving me, though I know I drove you mad,
You never once had... a word of complaint.

Never knew that things could be so different,
Never knew that I could be so blessed,
Always thought the odds were pretty distant,
Never knew I'd end up with the best.

Never knew my life could change completely,
Never knew my dreams could all come true.
With you I knew nothing could defeat me,
You make me feel I'm good enough for you.

It's like I had
Part of a heart, I was waiting for the beat,
When I put my arms around you, then the circle is complete.
Part of a heart, but together we are one,
And I never can give thanks enough for everything you've done.

Part of a heart, I was hollow and in pain,
But you held me and you loved me and you filled me once again.
Part of a heart, now the beat is oh so strong,
When I've got you here beside me, I know that's where I belong.

Part of a heart, I was missing part of me,
And there aren't the words to thank you for your love and loyalty.
Part of a heart, barely beating on its own,
But now I've found the other parts, we'll never be alone.

Part of a heart, and together we are one,
And I never can give thanks enough for everything you've done....
