Written by Simon Rea


The hardest heart
Would surely break for you
The strongest pride
Would fall from grace for you
And even though these souls you claim
Are only in your game
This heart of hearts
Yearns for you

The wisest man
Would play the fool for you
The greatest poet
Could not put rhyme to you
And though the promise of your lips
Would lie with every tender kiss
This fool of fools
Yearns for you

How could it be that such as you
Mocks love so sweetly
In ways that defeat everything I do
Your loves not true

And yet this heart
Will be condemned to you
And play the part
Of all youd ask it to
Waiting in hope
just for the day
That you may turn to me and say
this hardest heart
This foolish of hearts
This heart of hearts
Yearns for you
