The Heart of Life



From the Chocolate Cock to something a little less frivolous.

I'm not entirely sure what's up with the blogging of this song... I just know that I picked up the album insert today and looked at it, and something told me someone who reads this blog might need to see it. You know (or maybe you don't), it was just one of those inexplicable feelings that hit you smack out of the blue, for no rhyme or reason. I can't even identify who the person who might need to read it is (though I can hazard an educated guess). Just this mysteriously moving conviction that someone does, and that I don't need to try too hard, this person will see it somehow.

It's not even my usual "oh, this song is so wonderful, it touches me, it makes me cry yada yada" thing. It's never happened before, and while I've very little faith in my powers of ESP, I think I'd subscribe to the concept of divine intervention. It doesn't hurt to obey the call, in the rare chances that one gets to hear it.

So here's a dedication for you, whoever you are. More copyright infringements abound (yes, I am painfully aware of that), but I believe John doesn't give a crap.

"The Heart of Life"
-- John Mayer


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
But then, the circle of your friends
Will defend the silver lining

Pain throws you 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


Cheers. If you figure out who you are, let me know.
