Oh, This Foolish Heart
by   ITSme

Oh, this foolish heart of mine
  why do you keep on yearning
For the one that isn't mine
  and keeping this flame burning?
You know this love can never be
  so why not set it free?
Instead of hanging onto it...
  so free from it I'll be.

Everytime my mind's made up
  to try hard to forget
This heart of mine starts longing
  and again I am beset...
With thoughts of what could be 
  and all the 'how's' and 'why's'
Yet, knowing that it's all in vain
  it's then I start to cry.

Oh, this foolish heart of mine...
  oh please, please set me free
From the love I have for one
  that cannot ever be.
My heart has held onto this love
  for such a very long time,
I guess my heart keeps hoping...
  that someday love will be mine.
