"What The Heart Wants"

WHAT THE HEART WANTS

The odds are stacked against you
You think you could never win
Innocence and cynicism
Are your closest friends
But they cannot protect you
When true love comes your way
Another non-believer falls
To his knees today

The heart wants what the heart wants
Heart trumps the mind every time
The heart wants what the heart wants
And it will be satisfied

You can say what you will
Do what you like
Promise to be faithful
For the rest of your life
Pray to the Gods
Of stained glass and light
Hold your breath pretending
That you finally got it right

But, the heart wants what the heart wants
Heart trumps the mind every time
The heart wants what the heart wants
And it will be satisfied

It takes what it needs
It doesn’t take sides
Cannot be convinced
To believe in your disguise
Heart takes no prisoners
No guns, drugs or cash
Heart doesn’t care
Who’s standing last …

The heart wants what the heart wants
Heart trumps the mind every time
The heart wants what the heart wants
And it will be satisfied
It will be satisfied
The heart will be satisfied
