The Heart lyrics

My daddy was a charmer, boys, he had a lot of style
He was shining best at everything he did
They said that he could lighten up a room with just a smile
And I was proud as hell to be his kid

It seemed like just as we were growing close together he was gone
But it was long enough to show what I could be
And I sometimes feel his spirit fill my body like a song
And this is what my daddy sings to me

Chorus:
If they deal you down and dirty in a way you dont deserve
Youll feel better if you take it like a man
If you let em drive you crazy, boy, theyll shut your business down
Shake it off and get your licks in when you can
cause the heart is all that matters in the end

They say every song is sweeter when you sing it from the heart
I wont knock it cause I tried it and its true
I may never get to heaven, but Ive seen a lot of stars
And Im here to bring the same advice to you.

Chorus:
If they deal you down and dirty in a way you dont deserve
Youll feel better if you take it like a man
If you let em drive you crazy, boy, theyll shut your business down
Shake it off and get your licks in when you can
cause the heart is all that matters in the end

Yes, the heart is all that matters in the end
The heart is all that matters in the end
