Don Henley says it took him 48 years to write and 5 minutes to sing. Anyone who has experienced relationship loss will be able to identify with this song. Here is the chorus.
I’m learning to live without you now
But I miss you sometimes
The more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought I knew, I’m learning again
I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter
But my will gets weak
And my thoughts seem to scatter
But I think it’s about forgiveness
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore
Music and lyrics by Don Henley, performed by the Eagles.
