Music Video Tribute: Heart of Hearts

Bob Bennett does a tribute with Heart of Hearts from Mark Heard's Victims of the Age album.



Lyrics:

Heart of Hearts

Tears in the city
But nobody's really surprised, you know
My heart's taking a beating
Existence is bleeding me dry, you know

But way down in my heart of hearts
Way down in my soul of souls
Way down I know that I am a fortunate man
To have known divine love

The world is in shambles
I'm just a young man but it's been getting
a little bit old to me
I'm already aching
The years have been taking
a little bit of a toll on me

But way down in my heart of hearts
Way down in my soul of souls
Way down I know that I am a fortunate man
To have known Divine love

Two in the morning
The siren is a warning that
everything is not quite alright
The city is sleeping
I'm down on my knees in the night
tonight

But way down in my heart of hearts
Way down in my soul of souls
Way down I know that I am a fortunate man
To have known Divine love

Thanks for posting this. This was done in 1992 ... I finally recorded "Heart of Hearts" in 2002 on a CD called "The View from Here". The CD version is a slightly evolved version, but in most respects the same. Alas, without Bruce Carroll or Buddy Greene. Best regards, Bob Bennett

Thanks for stopping by, Mr. Bennett. And since you were so kind to leave a comment, I am going to do a post giving a link for your album through Amazon.com.
