about

Guitar/Vocal version. I think this was recorded on my old Tascam four-track cassette.

The song was written originally in '91 - four years before Nashville, and re-written several times during my first couple years in Nashville . . . and I ended up going back to an earlier version (maybe even the original) . . .

lyrics

THIS OLD HEART

This old heart is jaded by the past
I gave it away too fast a time or two
But this old heart still has love to share
It just takes someone to care to make this old heart new

Somebody's waiting . . . looking for me
If I wanna keep myself alive . . .
that's what I've gotta believe
Somebody's waiting . . . and it won't be long
Till we find each other . . .
so I'll keep holding on

'Cause this old heart spends some lonely nights
Wondering when it might find love again
This old heart needs something to do
Besides feeling blue and trying to pretend

Somebody's waiting . . . looking for me
If I wanna keep myself alive . . .
that's what I've gotta believe
Somebody's waiting . . . and it won't be long
Till we find each other . . .
so I'll keep holding on

And sooner or later there's bound to come a day
I'll find someone who makes lonely go away
Sooner or later . . . it could be tonight
I might find someone to treat me right

This old heart is jaded by the past
I gave it away too fast a time or two
But this old heart still has love to share
It just takes someone to care to make this old heart new

To make this old heart new
To make this old heart new
