A Matter of Heart
Stan Rogers

E                  A         E
We live in fear of no one to love us
   C#m7                  A
Of feeling like an empty hole
   B7
No kind heart or strengthening hand
   A                          E
To light the dark and seeking soul
E                   A      E
Behind the walls of lonely protection
 C#m7                          A
Afraid to give for what we may lose
       B7
And to hide our sin or let someone in
A                     E
Everyone will have to choose

CHORUS ONE:
E        E7          A
Put your life on the line
                               E
Give your hand and pledge your time
                         B7
To the love whose lips enflame you
          A                  E
Like some ancient and golden wine
E      E7          A
And to all, it's a start
                                E
In fulfilling greatest needs in part
                                    B7              A
For in whatever we dream of what we someday want to be
                 E
It's a matter of heart

We like to think we know what you are doing
We always like to be in control
The rational mind rules the passionate heart
Is what the ancient sages told
But that can sound a little bit hollow
When you are sitting by the fire alone
And the rarest of wine, tastes of ashes and brine
When you've no one there to keep it warm

CHORUS TWO:
Put your life on the line
Give your hand and pledge your time
To the love whose lips enflame you
Like some ancient and golden wine
And to all, it's a start
In fulfilling greatest needs in part
For in whatever we dream of what we someday want to be
It's a matter of heart

The ways in which our pride will stall us
When we know we should be losing control
Puts us in fear of falling
And we let it go
Our careful words are self deceiving
Though we'd like to call them pretense and art
And every old bind, is held in the mind
When it's really just a matter of heart

ENDING: REPEAT CHORUS TWICE
