You are here

Heart

Lyrics and Music by Allen Ling
Arrangement by Melissa Reese and Brain Mantia

I thought we said our last goodbye     
Now we're back for another try        
One more  round we both still cry    
And you still keep on asking me why
Why-y-y-y?                                              

If we want to let it go
We both could leave and we both would know
Neither one of us would be alone
But then we'll never be whole
No-o-o-o

We lose each other once again
Go crazy yet we can't be friends

CHORUS
And I hear my heart      
Pounding hard   
Telling me
"I told you you so
Telling me I told you so"   

And I feel my heart  
Calling out  
"Told you so"

Heart       
crying out     
(Ahhh...ahhhh)

We eat at fancy restaurants
We laugh a lot with mutual friends
But when the meal ends
We never hold hands
Na-nah nah nah

You bring me extra food to eat
Sometimes I even rub your feet
But we both know where that's gonna lead
And we start over again
Ah-ah-ah ah

I really want to set you free
Why can't you let me be

CHORUS
And I hear my heart     
Pounding hard   
Telling me
"I told you you so  
Telling me I told you so"   

And I feel my heart
Calling out
"Told you so"  

Heart       
crying out     
(Ahhh...ahhhh)

BACK STORY:

I wrote this song in 2013 for my good friend and combat instructor Matt Lucas who had some struggles and trials with a female companion of his.  First guy inspired song and I enjoyed writing it.  Actually, I had permutations of this song since the late 80’s and never quite could come up with the inspiration to do the verses. So thanks Matt!
