Stubborn Heart

From the single Stubborn Heart

It’s not like I didn’t know
The minute I saw you
Dancing to the music in your head
I’d be falling hard
I should have turned away
But I just watched you sway instead

And by the time that you sat down by my side
I was picturing you dressed all in white

My mind knows just how this will end one day
No faulty logic’s leading me astray
It’s just this stubborn heart that leads me wrong
And starts me heading toward some sad song
It gives me moments of insanity
Though my mind knows you’re not the one for me
Each time I fall in love I miss the mark
Thanks to my stubborn heart

There’s this chemistry
But it’s not enough
When I’m not what you’re looking for
Hearts don’t understand
So they charge ahead
Until they hit that slamming door

I’ll be feeling like you might be the one
Just before it all comes undone

My mind knows just how this will end one day
No faulty logic’s leading me astray
It’s just this stubborn heart that leads me wrong
And starts me heading toward some sad song
It gives me moments of insanity
Though my mind knows you’re not the one for me
Each time I fall in love I miss the mark
Thanks to my stubborn heart

I’ll be feeling like you’re surely the one
And that’s when it’ll all come undone

My mind knows just how this will end one day
No faulty logic’s leading me astray
It’s just this stubborn heart that leads me wrong
And starts me heading toward some sad song
It gives me moments of insanity
Though my mind knows you’re not the one for me
Each time I fall in love I miss the mark
Thanks to my stubborn heart

Each time I fall in love I miss the mark
Thanks to my stubborn heart
