Heart Can't Lie


this is your heart is it driving you wild

does it beat twice when you think you’re alive

does it stop stop stop sometimes hoping you’ll love

can you hang it from a string so it floats above

all the girls who stand on your living room floor

all the girls you wanted to let in the door

when you walk in a room do they stop and stare

does its sound sound sound echo everywhere

do you think they notice your sideline voice

when your heart beats loud do you have a choice

but to love all the ones you let behind your eyes

it’s still too quiet but this heart can’t lie
