Mr. Big - Just Take My Heart


Mr. Big - Just Take My Heart - Meaning of the song


The follow-up to Mr. Big's megahit "To Be With You," this is a very personal song written by lead singer Eric Martin with help from his songwriting partner Andre Pessis.

Eric Martin explains:


"Just Take My Heart' is about me and my first wife. Stacey was her name. Just laying there in bed the night before both of us are going to go our separate ways. You could hear a pin drop, that's how quiet it was. She was leaving me for another man." Martin says that every line in the lyrics reflects what he was feeling that night.


The black-and-white video was directed by Nancy Bennett, who did most of the band's videos from this era.

Just take my heart - Lyrics

It's late at night and neither one of us is sleeping I can't imagine living my life after you're gone Wondering why so many questions have no answers I keep on searching for the reason why we went wrong Where is our yesterday You and I could use it right now But if this is goodbye Just take my heart when you go I don't have the need for it anymore I'll always love you, but you're too hard to hold Just take my heart when you go Here we are 'bout to take the final step now I just can't fool myself, I know there's no turning back Face to face, it's been an endless conversation But when the love is gone you're left with nothing but talk I'd give my everything If only I could turn you around But if this is goodbye Just take my heart when you go I don't have the need for it anymore I'll always love you, but you're too hard to hold Just take my heart when you go Just take my heart Just take my heart when you go (baby, take my heart) I don't have the need for it anymore (I'll always love you) I'll always love you, but you're too hard to hold Just take my heart, baby, just take my heart when you go Take my heart Just take my heart
