The Heart Of The Matter Lyrics

I got the call today, I didn't wanna hear
But I knew that it would come
An old true friend of ours was talkin' on the phone
He said you found someone
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 ?
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
These times are so uncertain
There's a yearning undefined...
people filled with rage
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
doesn't keep me warm

I'm learning to live without you now
But I miss you, baby
The more I now, 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

There are people in your life
who've come and gone
They let you down and hurt your pride
Better put it all behind you; life goes on
You keep carryin' that anger,
it'll eat you up inside

I've been trying 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

I've been trying 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
