Never Give all the Heart

Never Give all the Heart

The Chieftains

Never give all the heart
For love will hardly seem worth thinking of
To passionate women if it seems certain

Never give all the heart
For love will hardly seem worth thinking of
To passionate women if it seems certain
And they never dream that it fades out from kiss to kiss
For everything that's lovely is but a brief, dreamy, kind delight
O never give the heart outright

For they, for all smooth lips can say
Have given their hearts up to the play
And who could play it well enough
If deaf and dumb and blind with love?
He that made this knows all the cost
For he gave all his heart and lost

They, for all smooth lips can say
Have given their hearts up to the play
Never give all the heart
