No sir, well I don't wanna be the blame, not anymore.
It's your turn, to take a seat while we're settling the final score
.
And why do we like to hurt, so much?

I can't decide
You have made it harder just to go on
And why?
All the possibilities...
Well I was wrong

That's what you get when you let your heart win. Whoa!
That's what you get when you let your heart win. Whoa...
I drowned out all my sense with the sound of it's beating.
And that's what you get when you let your heart win. Whoa.

I wonder, how am I supposed to feel when you're not here.
'Cause I burned every bridge I ever built when you were here.
I still try... holding onto silly things, I never learn.
Oh why? All the possibilities. I'm sure you've heard.

That's what you get when you let your heart win. Whoa!
That's what you get when you let your heart win. Whoa...
I drowned out all my sense with the sound of it's beating.
And that's what you get when you let your heart win. Whoa.

Pain, make your way to me. (to me)
And I'll always be just so inviting.
If I ever start to think straight,
This heart will start a riot in me,
Let's start... Start, hey!

Why do we like to hurt so much?
Oh why do we like to hurt so much?

That's what you get when you let your heart win!
Whoa.

That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa.
That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa.

I can't trust myself with anything but this,
And that's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa.

    This song shows that we will go through pain in life. Either from the heart, mind or even soul. But, we can't let the pain overpower our happiness and joy. We have to move on and forget that pain. Just don't expect to live your whole life without pain, cause sooner ir later it will come. You just have to deal with it and accept it.

    Well i think this song is about a girl that really likes/loves a guy-whether he be a boyfriend or other-and things arent going right, and she keeps getting the blame, maybe blaming herself or hes blaming her. And when things sorta of hit rock bottom she asks herself "And why? all the possibilities" thinking they could have really had something...and she can't let go because she has let her feelings or heart win.

    she followed her heart in a relationship and had tons of expectations but totally missed reality and was let down. she was with a jerk that made her hurt, blamed her for everything, and what not. FOr so me reason she was attracted to this pain that she was inflicting on herself by being in this relationship but couldnt let go for some reason,.She lost herself, got caught up in the relationship. Im glad im not alone. ..sounds like what i just went thu. i love this song, i can totally relate. you let your heart make decisions and sometimes its wrong. you gotta follow your BRAIN...

    My view:

    I think it's trying to portray the feelings of when you know it's wrong to love someone, but you follow your heart anyways and you shut out all your common sense. And then in the end you get hurt, and you wonder why you couldn't have listened to your gut feeling in the first place. And I think the person's mad because they gave their ex so much power to hurt them, and in the end they regret that. And she realizes that even though she understands that he was a jerk she can't help but still loving him. And that's why she's mad because she's letting her heart win the battle over her mind. And she thinks that her heart always leads her in the wrong direction, and it tries to overtake her mind, and wins.

    I don't know, but it's just what comes close to my heart because I feel the same way at times.

    If you let your heart do all the work, Then you're gonna get it. You have to think and not follow your heart all the time, Because you're just gonna get grilled.
