How much more hurt in life can my old heart take?
Lyrics Old Heart
Old heart you have known many thrills,
Today's pleasures and the joy you feel.
You have had a long and wonderful life,
Though you've felt pain and sorrow alike.
You've played the game of love and lost,
Heart's been broken and endured the cost.
You've kept my blood pumping and flowing,
My body is alive it keeps coming and going.
Old heart you've beaten through the years,
With sorrow and grief among all the tears.
How long can you beat without a break?
Keep me alive with every beat you take,
Many years you've worked day and night,
Not tiring from the hurt you endured in life.
Old heart your age is beginning to show,
I can feel you skip and the beating is slow.
