I lose my head
From time to time
I make a fool of myself 
In matters of the heart 
We should have been holding each other  Instead we talked 
I make a fool of myself 
In matters of the heart 

But I asked before
Your reply was kind and polite 
One wants more
When one's denied 
I make a fool of myself 
In matters of the heart 

I won't call it love
But it feels good to have passion in my life
If there's a battle 
I hope my head always defers to my heart 
In matters of the heart 

I guess I'm crazy to think 
I can give you what you don't want
I make a fool of myself 
In matters of the heart 

I wish that I had the power 
To make these feelings stop
I lose all self control 
In matters of the heart 

I can't believe 
It's so hard to find someone 
To give affection to
And from whom you can receive 
I guess it's just the draw of the cards 
In matters of the heart 

You caught me off guard  Somehow you reached me
 Where I thought I had nothing left inside 
I've learned my lesson I've been edified 
In matters of the heart 

I've spent my nights  Where the sleeping dogs lie
Not by your side
It feels so lonely 
Once again I've left to much to chance 
In matters of the heart 

Here I sit
I'm feeling sorry for myself 
It's quite a sight 
But I have you to thank 
For reminding me
We're all alone in this world 
And in matters of the heart 

I'm already missing you
 Although we won't say good byes
 Until tomorrow afternoon  Maybe when and if I see you again 
We'll see eye to eye
In matters of the heart 

I have no harsh words for you
I have no tears to cry
If the moon were full
I'd be howling inside
It only hurts 
In matters of the heart 

If today were my birthday 
I'd be reborn 
As bronte's bird a bird that could fly
And all accounts would be settled 
In matters of the heart
