Eagles The Heart Of The Matter Lyrics

Last updated: 10/22/2007 11:00:00 AM

I got the call today,
that I didn't wanna hear
but I knew that it would come.
<Music>
An old, true friend of ours
was talkin' on the phone :
" She said you've found someone. "
<Music>
And I thought of all the bad luck
and the struggles we went through.
And how I lost me
and you lost you.
What are these voices
outside love's open door ?
Make us throw off our contentment
and beg for something more.
<Music>
I'm learning to live without you now
but I miss you sometimes.
The more I know,
the less I understand.
All the things I thought I knew,
I'm learning again.
I've been tryin' to get down
to the heart of the matter.
But my will gets weak
and my thoughts seem to scatter.
But I think it's about
forgiveness,
forgiveness.
Even if,
even if
you don't love me anymore.
[Music1]...........[Music1]
[Music2]...........[Music2]
<Music>
All these times are so uncertain.
There's a yearning undefined
and people filled with rage.
<Music>
We all need a little tenderness.
How can love survive
in such a graceless age ?
The trust and self-assurance
that lead to happiness,
they're the very things
we kill I guess.
Pride and competition
cannot fill these empty arms.
And the work I put between us,
you know it doesn't keep me warm.
I'm learning to live without you now
but I miss you, baby.
And the more I know,
the less I understand.
All the things I thought I'd figured out,
I have to learn again.
I've been trying to get down
to the heart of the matter.
But everything changes
and my friends seem to scatter.
But I think it's about
forgiveness,
forgiveness.
Even if,
even if
you don't love me anymore.
<Music>
There are people in your life
who've come and gone.
They let you down
you know they hurt your pride.
You better put it all behind you baby;
cause life goes on.
You keep carryin' that anger;
it'll eat you up inside, baby !
I've been trying to get down
to the heart of the matter.
But my will gets weak
and my thought seem to scatter.
But I think it's about
forgiveness,
forgiveness.
Even if,
even if
you don't love me.
I've been tryin' to get down
to the heart of the matter.
Because the flesh will get weak
and the ashes will scatter.
So I'm thinkin' about
forgiveness,
forgiveness.
Even if,
even if
you don't love me.
{ Forgiveness }
Forgiveness - baby !
{ Forgiveness }
{ Forgiveness }
{ Forgiveness }
{ Forgiveness }
Even if,
you don't love me anymore !
[Music1]...........[Music1]
