Gerry Rafferty Whatever's Written in Your Heart Lyrics

Last updated: 02/05/2011 10:00:00 AM

(Yeah, night and day and day)

Wakin’ up here on a rainy day
I swore last time that I would stay away
I came down here to talk to you
I said this time I might get through.

I heard us speak but all the words were dead
We talked all night and left it all unsaid
So we agree to disagree
At least we got our memory.

Whatever’s written in your heart, that’s all that matters
You’ll find a way to say it all someday (yeah)
Whatever’s written in your heart, that’s all that matters
Yeah, night and day, night and day.

You’ve got your secrets yeah and I’ve got mine
We’ve played this game now for a long long time
You don’t lean on anyone
You never had no place to run.

You never wanted me to get too close
We love and hate the ones we need the most
I tried to find a way to you
One thing I could say to you.

Whatever’s written in your heart, that’s all that matters
You’ll find a way to say it all someday (yeah)
Whatever’s written in your heart, that’s all that matters
Yeah, night and day, night and day.

Maybe I’ve always set my sights too high
You take the easy way and still get by
I know there ain’t no special way
We all get there anyway.

I heard us speak but all the words were dead
Talked all night and left it all unsaid
So we agree to disagree
At least we got our memory.

Whatever’s written in your heart, that’s all that matters
You’ll find a way to say it all someday (yeah)
Whatever’s written in your heart, that’s all that matters
Yeah, night and day, night and day.

(fade)
Yeah, Night and day and day
Yeah, Night and day and day (whatever’s written in your heart)

Touching indeed | Reviewer: Jan W | 1/29/11

When this album (City to City) came out I didn't concern that much for this song (and The Ark). Now, many years later, this song (and The Ark) have grown into my heart. This is so beautiful, so well sung and with so much feeling. It came quite as a shock to me that Rafferty had died. Thanks for leaving these songs behind!



One of the few songs that touched me deeply | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/5/06

This song is one of the few songs that touched me deeply and left a deep mark on my mind. I visit past pains, try to find answers or consolations in this song.... at least, the tears help me cleanse.... i love this song.

Listen to K.D lang's Hallelujah too...
