The Heart Of The Matter by India Arie


I got the call today

That I didn't wanna hear

But I knew that it would come

An old true friend of ours was talkin' on the phone

She said you'd found someone

And I thought of all the bad luck

And all the struggles we went through

How I lost me and you lost you

What are all these voices outside love's open door

Make us throw off our contentment

And beg for something more?

 

Chorus: I've been 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 them 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

And people filled with rage

We all need a little tenderness

How can love survive in such a graceless age?

And the trust and self-assurance that lead to happiness

Are the very things - we kill I guess...

Pride and competition

Cannot fill these empty arms

And the work they put between us

You know it doesn't keep us warm

 

Chorus: I've been tryin to live without you now

But I miss you baby

And the more I know the less I understand

All the things I thought I'd figured out

I had to learn again

I've been trying to get down

To the heart of the matter

But my will gets weak

And my heart is so shattered

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 you know they hurt your pride

You got to put it all behind you; cause' life goes on

You keep carryin' anger it'll eat you up inside.....

Live happily ever after

 

And my heart is so shattered

But I know it's about forgiveness...

Forgiveness

Even if even if you don't love me

I've been tryin' to get down

To the heart of the matter

Because the flesh gets weak

And the ashes will scatter

So I'm thinkin' about forgiveness

Forgiveness.......

Even if you don't love me anymore........

Even if you don't love me anymore........
