Nothing More Than a Heart
lyrics by Carlos Bahr
than your affection is what I desire.
It is the miracle that I demand
of life, as the reward
for all my wounds.
than your affection is what I desire,
since I’ve never yearned for a fate better
than winning the joy
of living for your love.
In return I can give you
nothing more than a heart
as sensitive and as humble as a song.
My imagination can lavish you with the praise
of dreams that promise a better fate—
but I have nothing, nothing more
than longings that draw me to you.
And though I want to give you the world,
I can give you only a heart
that beats for one love alone.
