Seal - Half A Heart Lyrics

You took a piece of me when you left
I know you thought that I would forget
The moments, the silence, the heartache
And now I have this half a heart in my hand
The other half is buried in your sad
The bitter, the beautiful, the heartbreak

Am I even alive to you or just a shadow in the light of you?

I tried to get you out my system
I lied when I said I didn’t miss you
My mind is pulling apart
But it can’t convince this half of my heart
And I’ve been trying to erase you
And I’ve, I’ve been dying to replace you
But time won’t let me restart
You’re the only piece that fits this half of my heart

This room, it echoes with memories of you
This world we made I guess we just outgrew
You moved on, you’re long gone, I’m still holding on
Sick and tired of always saying that I’m ok
Pretending when it’s written on my face
I’m shattered and I’m battered, it don’t matter to you

Am I even alive to you or just a shadow in the light of you?

I tried to get you out my system
I lied when I said I didn’t miss you
My mind is pulling apart
But it can’t convince this half of my heart
And I’ve been trying to erase you
And I’ve, I’ve been dying to replace you
But time won’t let me restart
Now the sweetest dreams have fallen apart
You’r the only piece that fits
The only piece that fits
This half of my heart

  30. 99711856

    This song always touches me every now and then I listen to it. To have a love 2 walk away. I so tried to move on, and not be a bitter being. But its very hard. I try to erase him. Oh seal you speak my hearts woes 😢

  31. Laester E Dickson Willis

    There’s so much love that comes from this man, sometime I see it with my heart ❤️ he brings me to top surface and takes away the emptiness after losing my beautiful lover, my husband ,

    Virginia Duffy

    So true, he melts my heart, for all of us who lost a dear one.

  32. Ariadna Rached

    snif snif

  33. Sasha Siregar

    2:33-2:40 is the best melody. My heart melted.

  34. MKS Land

    It's hard to imagine that someone could pour their heart into songs such as this and not be a warm, caring person, in which case Heidi's loss. If that's the other piece or maybe Seal saw one of those necklaces with the 2 heart pieces LOL.
    You touch us Seal!

  35. 99711856

    Every now and then I listen to this song. It reminds me of my ex. Its been 15 months. Its like I mattered not to you. I try to just act like I don't care. I have to push forward. I truly loved you with every fiber of my being. I loved you, and you walked away as if our bond meant nothing. This song just gets me

    Ben Davies

    10yrs for me and the love, the loss is still as strong.

    Fiona Mary

    Nearly 4 years for me. The pain never goes away and I know I'll never love anyone like I love him. This song means so much to me. He is the other half of my heart.

  36. Tammy Embery

  96. Andrew Shemon

    This made me cry. This song reminds me of Alyssa Henry, my love. Yea im 16, but I know what love was when I saw her. We both loved each other. Then came the day when she stopped talking to me. I've been trying to replace her and I lied when I said I didn't miss her, but I did. if I could, I'd restart it all, just to be with her.

    Jimi Whispers

    +andrew shemon Oh yea, to be 16 again and finding love with that girl across the room. You get to talk to her and you don't want this time to end. Sure it's sad when you have to go but tomorrow is a new day. It's all a part of growing up in life. I just wanted to be 16 and drive. 16 came and went. now I'm 60 fell in love and out of love but you get over it, cause that someone you are looking for will find you and get you through the tough times. Keep smiling Andy, you have a long life ahead of you. You could find a girl that feels like you and who knows. I did..

    Andrew Shemon

    +Jimi Whispers Thank you. it just feels so hard letting go


    +andrew shemon - Your post struck a cord - here are my unsolicited thoughts and advice :

    First love is the hardest experience - absolutely - no question.
    The human brain is feeling intensely because it is the FIRST time to experience this specific emotion..
    Next add the unbalanced hormone level - hormones just beginning to function and pour out too much or too little into your system, as your unique body/brain calls to adjust [i.e. some days you feel good and in control, other days you feel bad, lost, feeling it is all over and will never be the same again].
    Now add to this mix that in young males, the emotional and judgment sections [frontal lobe] of the brain have not grown to full and complete function. [Yes, a female brain completes growth earlier than male.]. The young male brain has yet to function at 100% - and will not be complete or finished changing for several more years. So yes, love is a roller-coaster ride. And yes, I will NEVER forget the first time feeling this new emotion.- the gravity of assent to the highest highs, and then the horror of being pulled down, shattered in disbelief.

    My advice:
    First, be patient with yourself, you will say dumb things to her, you will second guess your actions or lack of - just FORGIVE YOURSELF. [As long as it is nothing illegal - forgive your missteps and mistakes.]

    Second: Learn about how this emotion feels. Remember it. Intuitively KNOW - it will happen again, most assuredly, several times in your lifetime. Recognize and acknowledge it mentally when it happens. And if attraction, the love does not last - it's not the end of your life. This is a story - a chapter in your life - and the goal is to have a very thick book - a page turner, full of joys and tragedies, a mystery, a best seller.

    Third: Each time you feel love or a strong emotion or physical attraction - remember - you are teaching your mind - a muscle - how it feels, how to process the feeling, and how to respond and react. After a few trials and errors, you will succeed.

    Simple comparison - Like riding a bike the first time without training wheels. You are scared, even frightened you might get hurt. You wobble trying to find balance, and maybe you will fall and get injured, physically and emotionally. You might be bruised and embarrassed with her and maybe with friends.

    But - please try to think of it as - This is a life experience - something- your brain is learning. You are learning how to balance, when to peddle, how often should the wheels turn, how slow or how fact - to stay on course and upright.

    Take care of yourself - wear a helmet - elbow and knee pads. This body of yours is the only vessel your heart and soul is given to experience the walk on this earth. No one else is protecting you - this is your experience. Yes, she will be experiencing it too - but in her own way - and it is NOT the same.

    And then you do it! You have overcome your awkward attempts and you get it right. You have a very personal experience called love. You are riding that bike - you can feel the breeze on your face - This is magic - It is wonderful. You are traveling on.

    Favorite quote:
    Love is passion. Obsession. Someone you can not live without.
    Someone you fall head-over-heels for.
    Find someone you can love like crazy, and will love you the same way back.
    Listen to your heart.
    No sense in life without this.
    To make the journey without falling deeply in love, you have not lived a life at all.
    You have to try, because if you have not tried, then you have not lived.

    Andrew Shemon
