EXCHANGE OF HEARTS
David Slater
(David Slater)

One-sided love broke the see-saw down
I got to get rough when I hit the ground
And you went your way and I went wild
And girl, you'd understand if your heart was mine

If we had an exchange of hearts
Then you'd know why I fell apart
You'd feel the pain when the mem'ries start
If we had an exchange of hearts

I'd never wished a lonely heart on you
It's not your fault, I chose to play the fool
One day may come when you'll be in my shoes
Then your heart will break and you'll feel just like I do

If we had an exchange of hearts
Then you'd know why I fell apart
You'd feel the pain when the mem'ries start
If we had an exchange of hearts

When time turns the tables and soon I'll be able
To find a new romance
And then you'll remember my love warm and tender
Too late for a second chance

(Instrumental)

If we had an exchange of hearts
Then you'd know why I fell apart
You'd feel the pain when the mem'ries start
If we had an exchange of hearts

    its so freakin' painful. i hope this does not happen to anyone i love because it happened to me and the pain is so unimaginable..i like the song and at the same time i hate that it relates to me in a way that its true..i hope that when i moved on, my wife will realize how wrong she was..

    if we could only exchange our hearts to the one we love who doesnt love us..maybe he/she will know what we feel for him and might appreciate us...

    Sad situation, sad in the sense that there must be a tears to fall just to make someone realized that they hurt/break feelings and sometimes there are still vulnerable hearts even others deny themselves just for them. We get hurt but still it teaches us to know more ourselves better and some reason tells us also to let go of someone who is not destined for us. It's hard to hold on someone who is not meant for you even if how strong you kept it still it will force you to free and your bitterness also is the key and led you to detached from them.

    So, let it go and soon you will see that there is better and best than yesterday.
