USE YOUR HEART AND NOT YOUR MIND
by tiara latanya tia

AS I SIT AND TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IT IS, I'VE DONE
MY MIND BEGANS TO DRIFT OFF, WONDERING, WAS SHE THE ONLY ONE?
JUST BECAUSE I'VE DONE AND SAID WRONG THINGS IN THE PAST
DOESN'T GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO PLAY WITH MY FEELINGS 
AND LEAVE ME LOOKING SAD...
I ONLY HOPE THAT YOU WILL SOON FIND 
IF WE DON'T MOVE ON FROM HERE, 
NEXT TIME... "USE YOUR HEART AND NOT YOUR MIND"
IT MAY BE CRUEL TO... 'JUST UP AND LEAVE' 
BUT HOW MANY TIMES WILL THIS OCCUR?
WHAT DO I HAVE TO BELIEVE?
YOU SAY, "WE'RE NOT COMMITTED" 
BUT OUR BODIES GLIDE WITH EACH OTHERS' SOUL...
TELL ME, "THAT'S NOT ENOUGH COMMITMENT TO MAKE ONE REALIZE 
THE OTHER PERSONS' HEART YOU SHOULDN'T SCOLD"
I'VE TOLD YOU IN THE PAST THINGS I'VE FAILED TO SEE
AND NOW THAT WERE IN THE PRESENT, 
WITH YOU... IS WHERE I WANT TO BE
I'M ALL CONFUSED AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
YEAH, YOU'VE GIVEN ME MORE CHANCES THAN ONE,
SO SHOULD I... DO THE SAME FOR YOU?
IF I DO, WILL THIS HAPPEN AGAIN?
WHO AM I TO WONDER 
'CAUSE AFTER ALL... I'LL NEVER WIN
YOU BLAMED IT ALL ON ME
YOU MESSING WITH SOMEONE ELSE...
AT LEAST I WAS A BETTER WOMAN TO ADMIT 
THAT SOMETHING WAS LACKING IN MYSELF...
NOW THAT I'VE HAD SOME TIME TO THINK, 
HOW LONG SHOULD I TAKE?
AND IF I TAKE AS LONG AS I WANT, 
ARE YOU STILL WILLING TO WAIT?
WELL I'LL END MY WORDS WITH MEANING,
IN HOPE THAT YOU WILL FIND
NEXT TIME YOU ATTEND TO SPIKE SOMEONE FEELINGS...
               "USE YOUR HEART AND NOT YOUR MIND"
