MY HEART HAS A MIND OF IT’S OWN

MY HEART HAS A MIND OF IT’S OWN

WORDS AND MUSIC BY HENRY GROSS AND GARRY TALLENT © 2010 ACHTUNES/ ASCAP GARRY TALLENT MUSIC BMI

 

I KNOW WHERE THE RIVER FLOWS
I KNOW WHERE THE WARM WIND BLOWS
I KNOW AND I’D GO THERE IF I COULD

I’M STANDING AT THE WATER’S EDGE
WITH EVERY BAD MEMORY THAT MY TOUGHTS CAN DREDGE
WANNA DROWN ‘EM NOW, SAIL ON OUT TO SEA AND BE FREE

WANNA DISAPPEAR WITHOUT A TRACE
FIND MYSELF A HIDING PLACE
BUT THAT VOICE IN MY HEAD HAS BEEN GETTING IN MY FACE

MY HEART HAS A MIND OF IT’S OWN
I FOLLOW WHEREVER IT GOES
IT’S A MINEFIELD OF DANGER WHEN YOU’RE LED BY A STRANGER
BUT MY HEART HAS A MIND OF IT’S OWN

WISH I COULD CLAIM RESPONSIBILITY
FOR BRINGING SOME PEACE AND TRANQUILITY
I’D BE A BETTER MAN IN ALL PROBABILITY

BUT EVERY STORY HAS GOT THREE SIDES
HERS, MINE AND THE TRUTH WE DENY
LUCKY FOR ME I DON’T NEED TO DECIDE 

MY HEART HAS A MIND OF IT’S OWN
I FOLLOW WHEREVER IT GOES
IT’S A MINEFIELD OF DANGER WHEN YOU’RE LED BY A STRANGER
BUT MY HEART HAS A MIND OF IT’S OWN

IT’S NOT THE TIME FOR FLOATING DOWNSTREAM
GOTTA PULL MYSELF TOGETHER
BEFORE I COME APART AT THE SEAMS

MY HEART HAS A MIND OF IT’S OWN
I FOLLOW WHEREVER IT GOES
IT’S A MINEFIELD OF DANGER WHEN YOU’RE LED BY A STRANGER
BUT MY HEART HAS A MIND OF IT’S OWN
THERE’S BIG TROUBLE BREWING AT HOME
MY EYES SEE IT COMING BUT MY HANDS KEEP ON STRUMMING
‘CAUSE MY HEART HAS A MIND OF IT’S OWN
