IRVING BERLIN lyrics - I Poured My Heart Into A Song

IRVING BERLIN
"I Poured My Heart Into A Song"

I poured my heart into a song
And when you hear it please remember from the start
You won't be hearing just the words and tune of a song
You will be listening to my heart

I poured my heart into a song
And I'm afraid the words I chose were not so smart
I couldn't think of clever things to say in my song
I had to say it with my heart

If it's never played on the hit parade
It will still contain a heart that is beating true
If it's not a hit I won't mind a bit long as it
Conveys the love that I bear for you

Here is my heart wrapped in a song
And if you take it please don't tear my song apart
For if you do you won't be just destroying a song
You will be tearing up my heart
