kapua tahi Love's a bit strong but I like the song - and the band because they're pretty tight musically for such a large outfit. The lyrics show insight into the human condition. Personally, I'd just found out that I needed 2 heart valve replacements (resounding success by the way). I have a black sense humour so this song and the news regarding my surgery, were posted on my facebook page. No one except me and my daughter thought it was remotely funny. But hei aha, can't please everybody.

lyrics

hello my old heart
how have you been
are you still there inside my chest?
I've been so worried
you've been so still
barely beating at all

oh, don't leave me here alone
don't tell me that we've grown
for having loved a little while
oh, I don't want to be alone
I want to find a home
and I want to share it with you

hello my old heart
it's been so long
since I've given you away
and every day I add another stone
to the walls I built around you
to keep you safe

hello my old heart
how have you been?
how is it, being locked away?
well don't you worry
in there, you're safe
and it's true, you'll never beat
but you'll never break

nothing lasts forever
some things aren't meant to be
but you'll never find the answer
until you set your old heart free

until you set your old heart free
