The Heart Wants What It Wants

 

The heart wants what it wants & does the time,  
You think that itís the brain, a clever fix.  
Thatís not the part thatís keeping you alive,  
It paces you and me, the head just ticks.  

Whatever else it is it ainít a brick,  
The heart wants what it wants & does the time.  
Your mind will jump thruí hoops for any trick,  
A Shih Tzu in a flaming pool of lime.  

The brainís just full oí words, ainít it a crime,  
And pulls the switches, miming every beat.  
The heart wants what it wants & does the time,  
A head must keep its cool or overheat.  

We think we know the score no matter what,  
The same day after day ainít worth a dime.  
Itís true whatís said of work, youíre in a rut,  
The heart wants what it wants & does the time.
