State of the Heart

I tell myself I’m not looking for love
I tell myself it’s the last thing I’m thinking of
I’ve got no expectations
And I mean just what I say
Then I look into his eyes
Damned if I don’t lose my head
And I wonder how I thought
Those things I said

It’s the state of the heart,
State of the heart
Ready to risk it all,
Willing to fall
There are ways to keep it safe,
Ways to play it smart
But I’ve never learned the art
It’s just the state of the heart
State of the heart

I ought to know time never stands still
I ought to know but I always believe it will
I’ve had those perfect moments
Turn to days of silent pain
But I hate to turn away
If there’s a chance, he’s the one
I admit that I’m no good
At sleep and run

That’s the state of the heart,
State of the heart
Ready to risk it all,
Willing to fall
There are ways to keep it safe,
Ways to play it smart
But I’ve never learned the art
That’s just the state of the heart
State of the heart

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

But I hate to turn away
If there’s a chance, he’s the one
I admit that I’m no good
At sleep and run

That’s the state of the heart,
The state of the heart
Ready to risk it all,
Willing to fall
There are ways to keep it safe
There are ways to play it smart
But I’ve never learned the art
That’s just the state of the heart
State of the heart

State of the heart
State of the heart
State of the heart

State of the heart
(repeat and fade out)
