The Heart Of Life Lyrics

Artist: John Mayer
Album: Continuum

I hate to see you cry
Laying there in that position
There's things you need to hear
So turn off your tears and listen

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

You know it's nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
But then the circle of your firends
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

i pretty sure in the beginning he says "pain throws your hope to the ground" and then it switches to heart. listen closely.

i love this song.
by kf on 7/17/2008 1:09am
i agree with ec. it's definately "hope" at the beginning. i can't listen to this song without thinking of my ex-girlfriend. if i could switch lives with john mayer i would in a second haha.
by AC on 7/17/2008 3:24pm

en serio este chiquillo me encanta, aunque ni siquiera es de habla hispana, adoro las letras de sus canciones, las busco si no las entiendo o las traduczco para saber que dice, porque la verdad sus canciones me identifican demasiado, sabes? es totalmente real. :) adorable canción, que más puedo decir.

really we need to have affection for people instead of giving things that could have pain in the feeling of other people. surly we have to send our heart for such people whom we need to make them happy.
by Ronald on 12/22/2011 9:16pm
Makes you really believe that there's good in every single person because we're all meant to do something great right?
Thanks for your music, John Mayer

This song is incredible. My close friend and I lost our best friend at age 15, this song makes me want to hold her, and let her know that everything is okay, and that even though we miss her, life is good. "fear is a friend who is misunderstood" pure genius.
