Theme

"While I was there Mel showed me the demo of the first song Miles and her wrote entirely together called Half Hearted — and it was inspired by the ending of my relationship to my husband. They wrote it together from the perspective of "how any guy" should have felt if he and I broke up. How sweet is that?"[2]

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I can't believe that I hated
All the times that you waited
For me to come home, baby now I see
That it was just love
Now the house is empty
You said you never wanna see me
I thought that this is what I wanted
Now I see that I was wrong

[Pre-chorus 1]
Baby, I messed up
I'll never find someone better for me
I was the one starting the fights
You were the one who was always right
You showed no mercy
And left me with nothing but memories
Now I need to show you you're a part of me

[Chorus]
I'll make this what it used to be
I'm half of you, you're half of me
Without you I'm just half complete
I'll lay foundation for the floor
I won't be half outside the door
For you, I'll make this home complete
It won't be half, half hearted
Without you I'm half, half hearted
I'll finish what we started, started
I won't leave you half hearted, hearted

[Verse 2]
I was someone you admired
The one you truly desired
But I left you so tired of me
And now you're gone
Every night I spend awake
From the silence your absence makes
If you can forgive my mistakes
And just take me back

[Pre-chorus 2]
You showed no mercy
And left me with nothing but memories
Now I need to show you you're a part of me

[Chorus]
I'll make this what it used to be
I'm half of you, you're half of me
Without you I'm just half complete
I'll lay foundation for the floor
I won't be half outside the door
For you, I'll make this home complete
It won't be half, half hearted
Without you I'm half, half hearted
I'll finish what we started, started
I won't leave you half hearted, hearted
It won't be half, half hearted
Without you I'm half, half hearted
And I'll finish what we started, started
I won't leave you half hearted
