Jacques Brel - The tender hearts


Original Title: "Les coeurs tendres"

Some have the heart so broad
That you come in without knocking
Some have the heart so broad
That you only see half of it

Some have the heart so frail
That you could break it with a finger
Some have the heart too frail
to live like you and me

They have plenty of flowers in the eyes
The eyes just above the fear
For fear of missing the time
That leads to Paris

Some have the heart so tender
That there lays the tits
Some have the heart too tender
Half men and half angels

Some have the heart so vast
That they are always on a trip
Some have the heart too vast
To do without mirages

They have plenty of flowers in the eyes
The eyes just above the fear
For fear of missing the time
That leads to Paris

Some have the heart outside
And can't do anything else but to offer it
The heart so much outside
That everyone makes use of it

That one has the heart outside
And so frail and so tender
That be damned the dead trees
that would not hear it

Has plenty of flowers in the eyes
The eyes just above the fear
For fear of missing the time
That leads to Paris
