The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “heart.”

The Song Lyric Sunday-crowd know well what I mean when I say sometimes you just can’t shake a song… and Heart of Mine  is another of my longtime favorites.

After an eight-year absence from recording, the always amazing Boz Scaggs returned in 1988 with the album Other Roads. The album reached #47 on the Billboard pop album chart, while the lead single Heart of Mine was a big Adult Contemporary success, peaking at #3 on that chart. The single also reached #35 on the Billboard pop singles chart. This single was produced by Stewart Levine (who also produced Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes’ Up Where We Belong and Simply Red’s two #1 hits, Holding Back the Years and If  You Don’t Know Me By Now).

It’s not a big song or anthem. It’s quite simple actually, which I believe is part of its charm.

Enjoy!

Heart of Mine

by Boz Scaggs

One day you may find true love
That will last forever and ever
Till then you’ll spend
A lifetime wishing one together

You never thought she’d say goodbye
And you’ll never understand
The reasons why

Heart of mine
How will you keep from dying
Stop the reminiscing
Who is she kissing

Heart of mine
Oh, what’s the use in trying
No one can mend you now

Love plays cruel games
You can’t believe
She’s found another lover

Does she miss me?
Sometimes you just
Can’t help but wonder

No, you can’t hold
The hands of time
And you’ll always be
The one she left behind

Heart of mine
(Oh, heart of mine)
How will you keep from dying
Stop the reminiscing
Who is she kissing

Heart of mine
(Oh, heart of mine)
Oh, what’s the use in trying
No one can mend you now

And you will never
Understand the reasons why

Heart of mine
(Oh, heart of mine)
How will you keep from dying
Stop the reminiscing
Who is she kissing

Heart of mine
(Oh, heart of mine)
Oh, what’s the use in trying
No one can mend you now

(Heart of mine)
Oh, heart of mine
(Heart of mine)

Heart of mine
(Oh, heart of mine)
Heart of mine
