Tell my heart to stop beating
Tell my mind not to think
Throw a stone in the ocean
And tell that stone not to sink

Tell the world to stop turnin' 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 lovin' you
Don't tell me to stop lovin' you

Tell the past to be forgotten
Tell my life not to exist
Tell a promise made to be unspoken
And my lips not to have been kissed

Tell the world to stop turnin' 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 lovin' you
Don't tell me to stop lovin' you

I can't do it, I can't stop
It's something that love has sealed
Only the broken-hearted know the way I feel

Tell the world to stop turnin' 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 lovin' you
Don't tell me to stop lovin' you
