March 05, 2010 - Mind Of A Heart

Mind Of A Heart

When you've drawn a line in the sand
As a point of no return
Do not ever cross this line
Unless you think you'll like the burn

There's obsession deep in this dance
Moving back and forth
Taking blows from every side
From an unseen force

The mind it cries out to get a grip
But the heart is in command
Losing ground with every step
As it makes its demands

What you will and what you won't
They are not the same
As what you do and what you don't
When it calls your name

You back it up and take it down
And find you're in a bind
As you go forth and give it all
When your heart can't find its mind
