Guard your Heart


Head or Tails

When I saw this weeks prompt the fist that popped into my head was Steve Greens song Guard Your Heart. Coming from a broken home, my mom's second marriage - this was theme of life and in some ways it still is.

I don't think my methods of guarding my heart have always healthy or effective - sometimes I think we risk guarding it so well that it collapse dies on the inside because nothing can get in or out.



Guard Your Heart

Oh, be careful little eyes what you see
Oh, be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above
Is looking down in love
Oh, be careful little eyes what you see

What appears to be a harmless glance
Can turn to romance
And homes are divided
Feelings that should never have been
Awaken within
Tearing the heart in two
Listen, I beg of you!

Chorus:
Guard your heart, Guard your heart
Don't trade it for treasure
Don't give it away
Guard your heart, Guard your heart
As a payment for pleasure
It's a high price to pay
For a soul that remains sincere
With a conscience clear
Guard your heart

The human heart is easily swayed
And often betrayed
At the hands of emotion
We dare not leave the outcome to chance
We must choose in advance
Or live with the agony
Such needless tragedy

Chorus
