Carson McHone – Gentle lyrics
[Chorus]
My broken heart won't play gentle with my mind
So every night I find myself thinking of you
But I'm only playing games
I bet my heart against my brain
And every time I lose

[Verse 1]
In all your songs you sang of leaving
Yet my heart kept me believing
That by some stroke of luck you might stay
Somewhere our flame lingers on
But it no longer keeps me warm
For you are gone, your love is so far away

[Verse 2]
And now your memory is black-and-white
How sentimental and how trite
Of me to paint your picture this way
But in this dark and lonely room
No shade'll quite match these blues
So I'll let all the colors fade to gray

[Chorus]
My broken heart won't play gentle with my mind
So every night I find myself thinking of you
But I'm only playing games
I bet my heart against my brain
And every time I lose

[Verse 3]
So on this barstool here I sit
With all the candles dimly lit
While the jukebox plays all the wrong songs
And I wonder if these tunes
Do the same thing to you
For I'm lost in my head before long

[Verse 4]
I know I told you I don't cry
But, Honey, you know that's a lie
So in my dreams you're wiping my eyes
Then you'll ask me for this dance
And for another second chance
And then I wake only to find…

[Chorus]
My broken heart won't play gentle with my mind
So every night I find myself thinking of you
But I'm only playing games
I bet my heart against my brain
And every time I lose
Oh, every time I lose
