What Good Is A Heart

Code Red is a British boy band formed in 1996 and disbanded in 2001. They published 3 albums in their entire career, Scarlet, Missin You Already and Crimson. Personally, it’s a real pity that they left the music industry, even if they had left their songs behind for us to listen to when they’re gone. Plenty of their songs are good for a slow day, when you feel like slowing down to┬ájust enjoy life, listening to great music while you read or draw.

My personal favourite will be this song, What Good Is A Heart, from their second album Missin You Already. I’m going to interpret it as telling us that even if we have been hurt by love before, we should still give it a chance, especially if it’s being given freely. After all, if you’re not even willing to start, what good is a heart?


What Good Is A Heart
By: Code Red

I told you how I felt,
I told you what it meant.
But I still haven’t changed your mind.

I know that you’re afraid,
You’re frightened of the pain,
But you can let down your guard.
Cause when we run (when we run),
When we hide (when we hide),
We deny what’s inside…

What good is a heart
If you’re not gonna use it?
What good is a love
If you’re too scared to choose it?
If you’re heart is beating, then it’s for a reason, girl,
If you’re not even willing to start,
What good is a heart?

Don’t make the same mistake
That people often make,
And miss out on a chance for love.
You’ve got to make your move,
You’ve got to make it soon~
Cause you’re dying inside.

Yes, I’m a man (I’m a man),
But I cry (but I cry),
I have fears,
I won’t lie.

What good is a heart
If you’re not gonna use it?
What good is a love
If you’re too scared to choose it?
If you’re heart is beating, then it’s for a reason, girl,
If you’re not even willing to start,
What good is a heart?

Come on, babe,
You know it,
Girl anyone who looks can see that I’m right.
There’s a chance here,
We could take it,
Or regret it for the rest of our lives.

What good is a heart
If you’re not gonna use it?
What good is a love
If you’re too scared to choose it?
If you’re heart is beating, then it’s for a reason, girl,
If you’re not even willing to start,

What good is a heart
If you’re not gonna use it?
What good is a love
If you’re too scared to choose it?
If you’re heart is beating, then it’s for a reason, girl,
If you’re not even willing to start,

What good is a heart
If you’re not gonna use it?
What good is a love
If you’re too scared to choose it?
If you’re heart is beating, then it’s for a reason, girl,
If you’re not even willing to start,

What good is a heart if you’re not gonna use it,
What good is a love if you’re too scared to choose it,
If you’re heart is beating, then it’s for a reason, girl,
If you’re not even willing to start,
What good is a heart?
