What the Heart Wants
by Collin Raye



She met him down at the laundry mat
Three a.m. on a washing machine they sat
And talked until dawn
He bought her breakfast at a small café
Morning turned to the rest of the day
Then the day was gone
He thought that she'd surely run away
A fairy tale never started this way, but

It ain't the mind that calls the shots round here
A stronger power's pulled to bodies near
Nothing on Earth can interfere
When love is what the heart wants

They made a wish on the evening star
From a rooftop high above the boulevard
Up in the twilight sky
He held her hand, she held her breath
Two lonely hearts beating scared to death
Of a chance to fly
Giving in to the arms of fate
This isn't quite like the plans that they made, but

It ain't the mind that calls the shots round here
A stronger power's pulled to bodies near
Nothing on Earth can interfere
When love is what the heart wants

It ain't the mind that calls the shots round here
A stronger power's pulled to bodies near
Nothing on Earth can interfere
When love is what the heart wants

It ain't the mind that calls the shots round here
A stronger power's pulled to bodies near
Nothing on Earth can interfere
When love is what the heart wants

Oh
Nothing on Earth can interfere
When love is
