Hi
I've read this expression "get away from our nest before we sing our hearts out".
I knew "sing out" as "singing loudly" but I never heard the word heart in connection. Is it just a case or is it an idiomatic expression.

    A squarciagola?

    Doesn't this mean "to sing loudly/at the top of one's voice", which isn't necessarily a positive thing.

    "To sing one's heart out" means to sing not only loudly, but with great conviction

    E.g. The children sang their hearts out in front of their parents at the school concert (bless! ;))
