One place understood helps us understand all places better.

No the heart must hold fast

The heart doesn't desire,
that's foolish talk

The loins might desire
the head certainly does.

But the heart retires
from such, it has work to do

The heart stays busy
it hasn't idle hands.

Now the eyes may glance
instead of hold fast

But the heart can't skip
or none will last

Long enough for some
mind to dream a desire.

No, the heart must hold fast.
