A Good Heart

Song written by : Maria McKee.

Originally performed by : Sharkey Feargal.

Perfomed by Texas : during the 1989-1990 Tour.

I hear a lot of stories, I suppose they could be true,
all about love, and what it can do to you.
Highest risk of striking out, the risk of getting hurt,
and still, I have so much to learn.
I know, 'cause I think about it all the time.
I know that real love ist quite a price.

And a good heart these days is hard to find,
(a good heart) True love, the lasting kind.
A good heart these days is hard to find,
so please be gentle with this heart of mine.

My expectations may be high, I blame it on my youth.
Soon enough I'll learn the painful truth.
I'll face it like a fighter, then boast of how I've grown,
anything is better than being alone.
I know 'cause I learn a little every day.
I know 'cause I listen when the experts say.
that a good heart these days is hard to find...

Yes, I'm reflecting all my childhood dreams.
My ideas of love weren't as foolish as they seemed.
If I don't start looking now, I'll be left behind,
and a good heart these days, it's hard to find.
I know it's a dream I'm willing to defend.
I know it will all be worth it in the end.

And a good heart these days is hard to find...(twice)
A good heart - (7 times).
