Tin cans on rattlin' pavement
Confetti scattered everywhere
She falls asleep in the seat beside me
Rice caught up in her hair
I don't mind it, I keep drivin',
Flying on these wheels of steel
A bit anxious, a bit nervous
The moment's all that we can feel

If oil is the soul of the engine
And wine is the drink of the Gods
Forgiveness the road to redemption
Faith can still beat the odds
We're meant to be baby hold on to me
You'll never not be my girl
'Cause love is the heart of the world

I leave him sleepin' as I rise early
Always up before the dawn
The house is dark, but I see clearly
Kettle sings a morning song
The bacon's frying, babies crying
I soak up the sights and sounds
Minutes turn to days and I wish that I could slow it down

If grease is the soul of the kitchen
And coffee the drink of the Gods
Routine too perfect to mention
Time is a thief I would rob
We're meant to be baby hold onto me
I'll never not be your girl
'Cause love is the heart of the world

Oh, and hope is the soul of the dreamer
And heaven is the home of my God
It only takes one true believer
To believe you can still beat the odds

We're meant to be baby hold onto me
You'll never not be my girl (I'll never not be your girl)
'Cause love is the heart, love is the heart,
Love is the heart of the world

    Tin cans rattling the pavement
    Confetti scattered everywhere
    She falls asleep in the seat beside me
    Rice caught up in her hair
    I don't mind it, I keep driving
    Flying on these wheels of steel
    A bit anxious, a bit nervous
    The moment's all we can feel

    If oil is the soul of the engine
    Then wine is the drink of the gods
    Forgiveness the road to redemption
    Faith can still beat the odds
    We're meant to be
    Baby hold on to me
    You'll never not be my girl
    Cause love is the heart of the world

    I leave him sleeping as I rise early
    Always up before the dawn
    The house is dark but I see clearly
    The kettle sings a morning song
    The bacon's frying, baby's crying
    I soak up the sights and sounds
    Minutes turn to ...days and I
    Wish that I could slow 'em down

    If grease is the soul of the kitchen
    And coffee the drink of the gods
    Routine too perfect to mention
    Time is a thief I would rob
    We're meant to be
    Baby hold on to me
    I’ll never not be your girl
    Cause love is the heart of the world

    If hope is the soul of the dreamer
    Then Heaven is the home of my God
    It only takes one true believer
    To believe you can still beat the odds
    We're meant to be
    Baby hold on to me
    You'll never not be my girl
    Never not be your girl
    Cause love is the heart, love is the heart
    Love is the heart of the world

    This song means so much to me because it helps you to realize all the little things in life.. And the biggest thing of all... That love is the heart of the world. Definitely a song that i'll never forget through the years

    This is a very special song because it speaks to my heart. It tells about not giving up on someone, especially through hard times!

    This song inspires me. After being in a loveless relationship for so long, i have now found a love for someone who loves me more than i could ever fully appreciate.
