Tell my heart to stop stop beating
Tell my mind not to think
Throw a stone in the ocean
Tell the stone not to sink
Tell the world to stop turning around
Tell the sky not to be so blue
Tell the rain to stop fallin down like tears
But don't tell me to stop loving you
Tell the past to be forgotten
Tell my life not to exist
Tell a promise made to be unspoken
My lips to not have been kissed
I can't do it I can't stop
It's something love has sealed
Only the brokenhearted know the way I feel
