(originally by Don Henley)

I got the call today, I didn’t wanna hear

But I knew that it would come

An old true friend of ours was talkin’ on the phone

She said you found someone

And I thought of all the bad luck,

And all the struggles we went through

How I lost me and you lost you

What are these voices outside love’s open door

Make us throw off our contentment

And beg for something more?

I’ve been learning to live without you now

But I miss you sometimes

The more I know, the less I understand

All the things I thought I knew, I’m learning them again

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter

But my will gets weak

And my thoughts seem to scatter

But I think it’s about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore

These times are so uncertain

There’s a yearning undefined

And people filled with rage

We all need a little tenderness

How can love survive in such a graceless age

And the trust and self-assurance that lead to happiness

They’re the very things we kill, I guess

Pride and competition cannot fill these empty arms

And the work they put between us,

You know it doesn’t keep us warm

I’ve been trying to live without you now

But I miss you, baby

The more I know, the less I understand

And all the things I thought I figured out, I have to learn again

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter

But my will gets weak

And my heart is so shattered

But I think it’s about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore

All the people in your life who’ve come and gone

They let you down, you know they hurt your pride

Better put it all behind you; cause life goes on

You keep carrin’ that anger, it’ll eat you up inside

I wanna be happily everafter

And my heart is so shattered

But I know it’s about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if, even if you don’t love me

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter

Because the flesh will get weak

And the ashes will scatter

So I’m thinkin’ about forgiveness

Forgiveness

Even if you don’t love me anymore

Even if you don’t love me anymore
