How Can this Heart Love Freely?

"How Can this Heart Love Freely" is a song about having a broken heart and the difficulties associated with trusting again after such a devastating experience. Believe it or not, this song was inspired by the discovery of a can of moldy chili in my refrigerator one day!

Lyrics
How Can this Heart Love Freely?

So tell me, how can this heart love freely
When it's chained to these sad memories?

I met him in the depths of a heartache.
I was dazzled by the warmth of his smile.
He said he would love me forever
And take me through life in big style.
But new things grow old rather quickly.
Opportunity knocked on his door.
He found him another cute plaything
And left me a-hurting once more.

So tell me, how can this heart love freely
When it's chained to these sad memories?
And tell me, how can a heart stop hurting
When it's covered with wounds deep as these?

You say you can help me forget him,
And that in you I can believe.
But bad memories make me worry
That you will, like him, someday leave.
For new things grow old rather quickly.
Opportunity may come to you.
You'll find you another cute plaything
And leave me alone, feeling blue.

So tell me, how can this heart love freely
When it's chained to these sad memories?
And tell me, how can a heart stop hurting
When it's covered with wounds deep as these?

So tell me, how can this heart love freely
When it's chained to these sad memories?
