My heart is desperate to take you back
My head is telling me NO
My heart aches as I miss you so much
But my head says the pain will go.
My head is saying it’s time to move on
My heart definitely doesn’t agree
My head thinks I can do so much better
But my heart thinks you’re the only one for me.
My heart is saying you deserve another chance
My head says you’ve already had plenty
My heart believes it will be different this time
But my head says one chance will lead to many.
My head is telling my heart to be strong
My heart says it’s ready to break
My head assures me I can handle this upset
But my heart thinks it’s more than I can take.
My heart is holding on to all that’s good in you
My head wants to press delete
My heart is sure it can convince my head
But my head says it won’t accept defeat.
