I got a big heart beating in my chest
It's such a fine art, never getting any rest
Every day and every night it keeps on going
I wanna be so smart, I'm giving it my best
But damn it's so hard when I'm flunking every test
And my head wants to lead the way
But my heart ain't following-
Then you call me from the road
You're driving through Virginia, heading home
Well won't you come on through?
'Cause I really wanna go on loving you-
You got a big heart I always understood
I think a new start will do you lots of good
And I hope someone will catch you if ever you're falling
You play a big part in so many of my songs
So thank you sweetheart, and though other come along
Hope you know you'll always be my dearest darling-
Then you call me late at night
Pretending to be near me and that's alright
'Cause there's nothing left to prove
So I guess I'm gonna go on, go on-
Big hearts beating, filling up the room
Well I knew you were needing something only I could do
Years go past and I'm still after what I had to lose-
And so you call me now and then
I ask about your job and your girlfriend
While this big heart's beating true
And I think she's gonna go on
I'm afraid I'm gonna go on loving you.
