“The Heart of the Matter” is a song recorded by American rock singer Don Henley from his third solo studio album, The End of the Innocence (1989). Written by Henley, Mike Campbell, and J. D. Souther.
This song is dedicated to all the lovers of our world, who, for some reason or another, lost the flame and the kindness of love!!!
This song is also dedicated to all troubled peoples asking and searching for forgiveness, in their paths toward peace and contentment!!!
And more importantly, this song is for all the people in our lives that has the ability to forgive.
Choose to love, do forgive, for one’s healthy propagation of good in mind and spirit!!!
That was a great piece of art, and a great era! I saw Don & Company on that tour, it was excellent! He rivaled his success with the Eagles IMO on that project. The heart (intuition) is so much more powerful than science and logic, and is the key to our salvation.

Hi Stan, @Stan_Halen ,
I agree, the heart is the window of our soul, and our minds need to ensure that our hearts stay pure.
The tempting pleasures of this world can really pollute our hearts and make it dark and cold.
Warm regards, and thanks for the excellent response!!!
With love and respect,
Thank you for the reviews! Now your video: I am quite familiar with Don Henley, though I don’t recall hearing this song before…on second thought, it does sound somewhat familiar. Excellent guitar playing and singing!
