How can you love with half a heart?




Half a Heart


Jonathan Pitts


With a question is how I'll start

How can you love with half a heart?


Love's a gift and that's no lie

But halfway done's not worth the try


With God, with man, with pets, and more

No one wants half, there's more in store


For those who give, all of who

They've grown to be; not part of you


When loving God guess what He wants

Your heart and life, none of your taunts


That say I'm here and yet you're gone

Body in place but heart has flown


Away with sin, with lust and pride

Your body's here but the truth you hide


Your love is gone with someone else

An idol you keep up on your shelf


A car, some money, and people too

Each thing, each part, has a piece of you


When loving people, the requirement's no less

Who wants a heart that's full of mess


Dirt from the past, baggage and weights

That send you back to the gates


Running back to what used to be

The pain and sorrow; Didn't God set you free?


You no longer have to go that far

Yet you settle for mud when you could have a star


You run between the good and bad

Then good is gone, see what you could have had?


Half a heart won't keep them there

Give your all and do not share


When loving life, don't trick yourself

Enjoy each day, its full of wealth


Don't live halfway with purpose denied

Saying "I could have done" and then you sighed


Life is short don't settle don't stop

Keep pushing and pressing up to the top


There's more for you if you'll just see

That you can say, "There's greatness in me!"


So from this day, start right now

To change your thinking, I'll show you how


Stand real tall and give a shout

"I'll live for God, that's what I'm about!"


But remember my friends before you go

That life is more than what you know


Your life and love has limits you see

All set by you, never by me


In anything done, in life that's right

Don't play around, your time is tight


The sun will set no matter how long the day

The end will come, what will you say?


I played my games, I halfway lived

Because my heart, I did not give


Back and forth, to and fro

I ran and ran, nowhere did I go


Stop and breathe, think a bit

Don't waste your time, get over it


The past is gone, no more hate

Forgive and move, your future's great


Embrace the day, look up ahead

Release the past, forget what's dead


But remember this, a lesson true

The outcome of things is up to you


Give your all, and give your best

And you'll fly higher than the rest


Just remember this question from the start

How can you love with half a heart?
