Heart Of Life Lyrics - John Mayer

Review The Song (13)

I hate to see you cry lying there in that position
There's things you need to hear
So turn off your tears and listen
Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won't all go the way it should
But i know the heart of life is good

You know it's nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
Then the circle of your friends
Will defend the silver lining

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won't all go the way it should
But i know the heart of life is good

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
Fear is a friend who's misunderstood
But i know the heart of life is good.
I know it's good.

The Heart of Life | Reviewer: Jose | 3/29/13

Life is inherently good but bad things do happen. He says it so elequently yet so simple, life isn't meant to be perfect. During hard times you have to get back on your feet. My favorite line is The circle of your friends will defend the silver lining, no matter how bad things seem they will help you look at the bright side.

looooveeee it | Reviewer: SlouchingImp | 8/10/12

I am only 11 and I freaking love this song. I understand most parts but not the silver lining part. Can anyone tell me what that means? I want to understand everything on the song cuz its soo good :)

i first heard this song the morning after my mom attempted suicide. this song is something that reminds me of her and i think it represents our situation perfectly. life can be hard but love can make everything okay again.....

life | Reviewer: Amy | 11/6/10

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! Heard it at work and then got CD, awsome and inspiring and just a wholesome song. Great for when im riding my horse or sitting in the car. No wonder its on a cd of "somngs to make you smile" by far and beyond my favourite. Could listen to it every second of the day.

lovely | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/26/10

Just recently heard this song for the first time and it is so simple, honest, and up beat, without being cheesy. I love it. It reminds us that there will be bumps in the road, but we must enjoy the "heart of life" and never forget it when we are down. I love the words he used.

awesome | Reviewer: Robyn | 11/17/07

Is this guy not one of the best songwriters of all time? He strings a few simple words together ... which say things some of us spend a lifetime trying to figure out how to say. I can't stop listening to the Continuum cd ....

amazing | Reviewer: Tess | 10/15/07

this song is just simply amazing. it makes you believe that everything is going okay and although there may be some down parts in your rollercoaster of a life, all in all its a good ride. john mayer is amazing.

YES! | Reviewer: Kathleen | 8/2/07

"You know it's nothing new
Bad news never had good timing"

it so darn true

amazing... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/7/07

This is the most amazing song I have ever heard. The words ring as true as life itself. John Mayer is such a talented songwritter that continues to grasp an emotion of life and put it into beautiful words. The heart of life truely is good...

Truth | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/30/07

This song is just pure truth. There's no way it can't hit you. The first time I listened to it I was spellbound. It made me feel lighter. A lot has been happening lately with my dad battling lung cancer, and this song put it all into words in such a simple, beautiful way. It could be applied to a lot of different situations in people's lives. John Mayer has a gift for songwriting. No fancy frills on this song. Just unadulterated life. And it will speak to you.

The Day I Started Over | Reviewer: Julie | 9/13/06

This song has changed my life. I have been in pain lately, jaded, thinking the world was out to get me after having been deceived badly by someone who I thought loved me. I was giving up, until I heard this song. The words are gorgeous. So true, and they hit right to the heart of me. The melody is beautiful, having a very Simon and Garfunkel feel to it I think. I am so happy that this song found me.
