Heart, The


My daddy was a charmer, boys, he had a lot of style

He was the shining best at everything he did

They said that he could lighten up a room with just a smile

And I was proud as hell to be his kid


It seems like just as we were growing close together, he was gone

But it was long enough to show what I could be

And I sometimes feel his spirit fill my body like a song

And this is what my daddy sings to me



         If they deal you down and dirty in a way you don't deserve

         You'll feel better if you take it like a man

         If you let 'em drive you crazy, boy, they'll shut your business down

         Shake it off and get your licks in when you can

         'Cause the heart is all that matters in the end


They say that every song is sweeter when you sing it from the heart

I won't knock it 'cause I've tried it and it's true

I may never get to heaven, but I've seen a lot of stars

And I'm here to give the same advice to you


***Repeat Chorus


Yes, the heart is all that matters in the end
