Knopfler, Mark - My Heart Has Never Changed Lyrics




My car’s in for a brake job
Be ready in a while
Something about the waitress
Made me think about your smile
I tip her a ten spot
And I try to read her name
I’m just an old long hauler
A grinder at the game

Heaven knows the highways
Since we’ve been apart
But my heart don’t feel like leaving
Or you won’t leave my heart
Now and then I might take
A little something for pain
But there’s nothing much for heartache
And my heart has never changed
My heart has never changed

Now there’s no more rough and tumble
Down Highway 199
Nothing lasts forever
I just miss it sometimes

She comes to pour more coffee
But it’s time to see more world
I pick up my check and keys
And go and pay the girl
My mind’s in Hell’s Half Acre
And the rooms along Exchange
And the scenes are always shifting
But my heart has never changed
My heart has never changed

    My car’s in for a brake job
    Be ready in a while
    Something about the waitress
    Made me think about your smile
    I tip her a ten spot
    And I try to read her name
    I’m just an old long hauler
    A grinder at the game

    Heaven knows the highways
    Since we’ve been apart
    But my heart don’t feel like leaving
    Or you won’t leave my heart
    Now and then I might take
    A little something for pain
    But there’s nothing much for heartache
    And my heart has never changed
    My heart has never changed

    Now there’s no more rough and tumble
    Down Highway 199
    Nothing lasts forever
    I just miss it sometimes

    She comes to pour more coffee
    But it’s time to see more world
    I pick up my check and keys
    And go and pay the girl
    My mind’s in Hell’s Half Acre
    And the rooms along Exchange
    And the scenes are always shifting
    But my heart has never changed
    My heart has never changed

    Tonight I listen to this song and think of a love that hasn't extinguished and never will. Even these years later. It's missed and it's tough being without it.

  5. Chantal Roumier

    Thanks a lot Pedro for sharing this beautiful song ! I really like Mark K. !

    Chantal Roumier

    Bon courage François ☺

    François Gannier

    merci a vous. le temps passe mais n'efface rien. grand talent ce Mark Knopfler. a éviter d'écouter lors de période de grand spleen quand même.

  9. Agustin Gorostiaga

    Very similar to "Get Lucky"

  10. D T

    First time listening to this song I had it on in the background while doing work not really paying attention to the words. That was until the 'nothing lasts forever' part. I had to rewind and listen to that part again cause it hit me like bricks. Thank you for writing this beautiful song that I'm sure will be near to many people's hearts.

    Thomas Van Der Plas

    Same for me my friend! What a song!

  11. Brian Weir

    brilliant as usual

  12. Hanna Grill

    Lovely music!

  13. Doug Misantoni

    MK... Another superb tale from the Maestro

  14. Monica Young

    I adore Mark knopfler...this is a favorite. ..
    His guitar work...always haunting...that beautiful deep voice...sigh..

  15. Fredrik Jönsson

    on what cd can I find this song?

    Gonçalo Pedro

    This is from the Tracker album. But in the normal cd you won't find it, since it´s a bonus track.

    Fredrik Jönsson

    I know since I of course have the Tracker Album on cd. Still, do you know how I can get the cd with bonus tracks?

  16. Tino Cibaric

    nice song.

  17. Beaker Bob

    One of my fav songs. EVER!

  18. Marty Howe

    "Nothing lasts forever, I just miss it sometimes" (in my case I miss it all the time) - no truer words spoken

    Dunderhead

    It's a heart-breaking line. For me, one of his best songs. I love the imagery, the story telling and the mixture of hope and sadness.

    Thomas Van Der Plas

    @Dunderhead the storytelling is one only mark can do. Amazingly beautifull.. haunting.. sad but true at the same time

    Dan Bolger

    Yes, indeed.
