I'm sure so fine a song MUST have surfaced here before, but I can't find it either in the DT or (attempting) a thread search. Can anyone please post, or point me to the words of the McGarrigles' song.

TIA!

George

Some say the heart is just like a wheel If you bend it, you can't mend it ? ?

[Refrain] And it's only love, (yes) it's only love }2 That can wreck a human being and turn him inside out}X

[another verse has the last two lines:] But my love for you is like a sinking ship And my heart is on that ship out in mid-ocean

When harvest's done no love can be won I know it happens frequently ? ? [Refrain]

Some say that death is a tragedy It comes once, and it's over But my only wish is for that deep dark abyss 'Cause what's the use of livin' with no true lover? [Refrain]

This ain't all of it George, but someone else will post it in more comepleteness [or I will find the record] -- when the lyric is all here we can add it 2 the db

FABULOUS SONG!!!!

Heart like a Wheel

Some say a heart is just like a wheel
When you bend it, you can't mend it
And my love for you is like a singing ship
And my heart is on that ship out in mid-ocean.

They say that death is a tragedy
It comes once, then it's over
But my ony wish is for that deep, dark abyss
Cause what's the use of living with no true lover?

(bridge) And it's only love & it's only love
That can wreck a human being and turn him inside out.

When harm is done, no love can be won
I know this happens frequently.
What I can't understand, o please God hold my hand,
Why this should have happened to me?

Anna McGarrigle

I love this. It's one I sing often.

WW

Hard to believe that one's not in the DT. Here ya go:

HEART LIKE A WHEEL
(words and music: Anna McGarrigle/Garden Court Music ASCAP)


Some say a heart is just like a wheel:
When you bend it, you can't mend it,
And my love for you is like a sinking ship
And my heart is on that ship out in mid-ocean.

They say that death is a tragedy:
It comes once and it's over,
But my only wish is for that deep dark abyss
'Cause what's the use of living with no true lover?

And it's only love, and it's only love
That can wreck a human being and turn him inside out
That can wreck a human being and turn him inside out

When harm is done no love can be won
I know this happens frequently
What I can't understand
Oh please God hold my hand
Is why it should have happened to me

And it's only love and it's only love
And it's only love and it's only love
Only love, only love
Only love, only love
