Waking up with my head in a cloud watching the morning come
Another day of the week in a month, in a year, in a life that's come undone
I might as well quit trying to get you off my mind
I might as well quit hoping that this heart will heal in time

'Cause I can't burn a bridge that I'm still crossing
And I can't lose a past that I'm still lost in
I can tell myself it's over and I need a brand new start
But there's no such thing as mind over matters of the heart

Everyday there's another attempt to convince myself you're gone
Every night there's a promise I make that tomorrow I'll move on
But there's a voice inside me that calls your name out loud
A part of me still hopes to see your face in every crowd

'Cause I can't burn a bridge that I'm still crossing
And I can't lose a past that I'm still lost in
I can tell myself it's over and I need a brand new start
But there's no such thing as mind over matters of the heart

I can tell myself it's over and I need a brand new start
But there's no such thing as mind over matters of the heart

    sakit kauu... it really hurts.. why? why? why? I love u still but seems like life wont be complete without u.. I attempted countless times to forget u but it always ends up still loving u.

    No matter how hard you try to convince yourself that it's already over, if the memories still linger and they play on and on on your mind, the heart will never forget. Bottom line is, your one true love will always be.

    Really hard to get over with someone you love so much. Even how many times you would console yourself, it still hurt so much when memories flashes by again. Really there's no such thing ad mind over matters of the heart.

    No matter how hard we try to move on if its not really the right time that our hearts will be healed.. It will never happen,most of the time we denied the truth that we are hurting though deep inside we are dying.

    it's really hard to get over with the one you truly love.. you can tell your mind that you'll be fine in time, but your heart can't deny the hurt that you're feeling, your heart knows that you will never move on..
