    Can you say to have something at heart?

    Hi there

    As the title reads, I am not sure whether you can say: "to have a lot at heart", meaning that you have a lot to say. Or is there another phrase for this?

    "I have a lot to say" would seem to put it clearly.

    NOT A TEACHER


    (1) I believe that you can say:

    I have a lot to get off my chest. = I have a lot to tell you, especially negative things

    (complaints, etc.).


    P.S. Because of the word "chest," it might be a good idea for females NOT to use

    this idiom. Some immature people might laugh.
