I am finding out that maybe I was wrong
That I've fallen down and I can't do this alone

Stay with me,
This is what I need,
Please.

[Refrain:]
Sing us a song and we'll sing it back to you
We could sing our own but what would it be without you?

I am nothing now and it's been so long
Since I've heard the sound, the sound of my only hope

This time I will be listening.

[Repeat Refrain]

This heart, it beats, beats for only you (2x)

This heart, it beats, beats for only you
My heart is yours

This heart, it beats, beats for only you
My heart is yours
(My heart, it beats for you)

This heart, it beats, beats for only you (It beats, beats for only you)
My heart is yours (My heart is yours)

This heart, it beats, beats for only you (Please don't go now, please don't fade away)
My heart, my heart is yours (Please don't go now, please don't fade away)

(Please don't go now, please don't fade away) My heart is yours
(Please don't go now, please don't fade away) My heart is yours
(Please don't go, please don't fade away)
(Please don't go now, please don't fade away) My heart is...

    I've seen a lot of live videos of this song from their previous concerts..then I understood. There are like one or five concerts where she often times put her hand up and her finger points up...there was also a part of the song in the concert that isn't in the album where they started singing all the OH's still pointing up...then it was quite obvious that her heart...is for god..it's not a typical girl luvs boy (though that may also apply) but the real reason why they composed that was because it's for god surrendering herself..

    if you don't believe me then see for yourself..at the send of the song I had really deadly goosebumps, understanding it all.. =">

    Everyone is entitled to their own interpretation :)
    I guess, its what the song means to everyone individually that matters.

    I interpret it 3 ways, which does include a song of "love", a song dedicated to "god", but the interpretation I think fits perfectly is that it is a song dedicated for their fans, which is kinda obvious when they do perform it live ...

    With lines such as:

    "Sing us a song and we'll sing it back to you,
    We could sing our own, but what would it be without you?"

    And

    "This time I will be listening"

    Etc :)

    It's about a band member leaving.Hunter Lamb left the band in 2007.Hayley and the rest of the band were upset about it that is what "My heart" is about.They felt that even though he left they forgive him.
