Don't Throw My Heart Away


It's never beneath me.
To show it above,
Those feelings that I have for you...
That exposes all my love.

No it's never beneath me.
Or is it here to fear,
Without you in my life to love...
I'd have no happiness so near.

I am born with needs.
And I want to keep them,
Open, honest and direct...
To remove any doubts left to have you guess.

Don't throw my heart away.
I wont settle for a loneliness,
Like others who accept to expect.

Don't throw my heart away.
Like others who choose to neglect,
The ones they've left in loneliness.

No it's never beneath me.
Or is it here to fear,
Without you in my life to love...
I'd have no happiness so near.

Not one second of a thought do I give it,
To allow my feelings to be quickly diminished.

Don't throw my heart away.
Not one second of a thought do I give it,
To allow my feelings to be quickly diminished.
Don't throw my heart away.

It's never beneath me.
To show it above,
Those feelings that I have for you...
With exposing of my love.

Don't throw my heart away.
Not one second of a thought do I give it,
To allow my feelings to be quickly diminished.
Not one second of a thought do I give it,
To allow my feelings to be quickly diminished.
Don't throw my heart away.

No it's never beneath me,
To show you my love.
Don't throw my heart away.

Not one second of a thought do I give it,
To allow my feelings to be quickly diminished.
Not one second of a thought do I give it,
To allow my feelings to be quickly diminished.
Don't throw my heart away.

Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
