Heart Like a Wheel

I’ve been listening to a song, called heart like wheel, by The Corrs. I’m not sure what it’s about. It’s a mystery. I’m pretty sure it’s about a woman whose husband or partner has died. But it’s hard to tell.

There a several verses that I like in it. I like almost all of it, really. It has lyrics that really make you think. This is pretty much the whole song. It’s very thought provoking.

Some say the 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
My heart is on that ship out in mid-ocean

They say that death is a tragedy
It comes once and then it’s over
But my one only wish is for that deep dark abyss
For what’s the use of living with no true lover

And it’s only love and it’s only love
That can break a human being
and turn him inside out
That can break a human being
and turn him inside out

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

Where do I start? I love the way the heart is compared to a wheel, and how love affects a person. I love the way it explores the idea of death, and how it says ‘when harm is done no love can be won.’ I hope, though, the part about never being able to mend a heart once damaged isn’t true. But that could be a bit naive.  Either way, I love this song.
