Two Hearts
Chris Isaak Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

No stars in the sky
The night seems so dark around you
You won't say a word
And wonder why no one's found you
Waiting for love
Praying for love again

Love's a heavy weight, give it to me don't hesitate
Love's a heavy thing, too heavy for one heart to bring me your love
Give me your love again, it's not your fault
One heart can never win it takes

Two hearts, two hearts just to hold love
Two hearts, two hearts just to hold your love
Your love

And if your heart should ache
Remember me
And if your heart should break

Two hearts, two hearts they can mend it
Heartache, heartaches can be ended by love, by love

Love's a heavy weight
Give it to me don't hesitate
Love's a heavy thing
Too heavy for one heart to bring me your love
Give me your love again, it's not too late
One heart can never win, it takes two hearts

Two hearts just to hold love




Two hearts, two hearts just to hold your love
Your love

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Chris Isaak's song Two Hearts seem to be a message of hope and encouragement to a person who feels lonely and desolate. The opening lines of the song 'No stars in the sky, the night seems so dark around you, you won't say a word, and wonder why no one's found you' describe a feeling of emptiness and solitude. The next line 'Waiting for love, praying for love again' suggests that the person has lost love previously, and they're hoping to experience it again.


The next few lines 'Love's a heavy weight, give it to me don't hesitate, love's a heavy thing, too heavy for one heart to bring me your love' seem to be an encouragement for the person to seek love again. The lines 'Give me your love again, it's not your fault, one heart can never win it takes two hearts' suggest that one person's effort alone is not enough to find and keep love; it requires two people to make it work.


The chorus 'Two hearts, two hearts just to hold love, two hearts, two hearts just to hold your love, your love' adds meaning to the entire song. It is a call for the person to not give up on love and to hope that there's someone out there meant for them. The lines 'And if your heart should ache, remember me, and if your heart should break, two hearts, two hearts they can mend it, heartache, heartaches can be ended by love, by love' further emphasize that love is what can heal a broken heart.
