To your common sense firm arguments
I won't listen to your voice of reason, trying to change my mind
I mind my feelings and not your words, didn't you notice
I'm so headstrong even when I know I'm wrong?

Take this to your heart and into your head now
Before you waste your time, call a truce and call a draw

What's the use in mapping your views out in orderly form
When it does nothing but confuse and anger me more?
I mind my feelings and not your words, didn't you notice
I'm so headstrong? You're talking to a deaf stone wall

Take this to your heart and into your head now
The old wives' tale is true, I'll repeat it
'All is fair in love and war', that's how the famous saying goes

Open up your eyes, see me for what I am
Cast in iron, I won't break and I won't bend

Take this to your heart and into your head now
The old wives' tale is true, I'll repeat it
'All is fair in love and war', that's how the famous saying goes

If I told you we were out to sea in a bottomless boat
You'd try anything to save us, you'd try anything to keep us afloat
And if we were living in a house afire, I don't believe
That you could rush out and escape it and not rescue me

Take this to your heart and into your head now
The old wives' tale is true, I'll repeat it
'All is fair in love and war', that's how the famous saying goes
Listen, I think they were talking to you
