Variant Title(s): Song
Subject(s): Courtship

I PRITHEE send me back my heart,
Since I cannot have thine;
For it from yours you will not part,
Why then shouldst thou have mine?
Yet, now I think on 't, let it lie;
To find it were in vain;
For thou'st a thief in either eye
Would steal it back again.
Why should two hearts in one breast lie,
And yet not lodge together?
O Love! where is thy sympathy
If thus our breasts thou sever?
But love is such a mystery,
I cannot find it out;
For when I think I'm best resolved
I then am most in doubt.
Then farewell care, and farewell woe;
I will no longer pine;
For I'll believe I have her heart
As much as she has mine.
