Half of My Heart

Album: Battle Studies (2009)
Charted: 25
  • I was born in the arms of imaginary friends
    Free to roam, made a home out of everywhere I've been
    Then you come crashing in, like the realest thing
    Trying my best to understand all that your love can bring

    Oh half of my heart's got a grip on the situation
    Half of my heart takes time
    Half of my heart's got a right mind to tell you
    That I can't keep loving you (can't keep loving you)
    Oh, with half of my heart

    I was made to believe I'd never love somebody else
    I made a plan, stay the man who can only love himself
    Lonely was the song I sang, 'till the day you came
    Showing me a another way and all that my love can bring

    Oh half of my heart's got a grip on the situation
    Half of my heart takes time
    Half of my heart's got a right mind to tell you
    That I can't keep loving you (can't keep loving you)
    Oh, with half of my heart

    With half of my heart

    Your faith is strong
    But I can only fall short for so long
    Down the road, later on
    You will hate that I never gave more to you than half of my heart
    But I can't stop loving you
    (I can't stop loving you)
    I can't stop loving you
    (I can't stop loving you)
    I can't stop loving you with half of my

    Half of my heart
    Oh, half of my heart
    Half of my heart's got a real good imagination
    Half of my heart's got you
    Half of my heart's got a right mind to tell you
    That half of my heart won't do

    Half of my heart is a shotgun wedding
    To a bride with a paper ring
    And half of my heart is the part of a man
    Who's never truly loved anything

    Half of my heart
    Oh, half of my heart
    Half of my heart
    Oh, half of my heart
    Half of my heart
    Oh, half of my heart Writer/s: JOHN MAYER
