Heart over mind
Yes, I'm my father's son
I live my life, just like my father's done

If he'd told me one day
That somebody'd have my heart in chains
Would I believe it? No way
Made up my mind, I'd never fall that way

But tell me why, every time I try
To tell you it's goodbye, I can't seem to let go
In my heart, I know I want to stay
What I'm trying to say

Heart over mind
Yes, I'm my father's son
And I'm inclined to do as my father's done

Here I am with you and I know that it's true
Despite all the feelings, you're putting me through
I try to walk away, something makes me stay

Heart over mind
Yes, I'm my father's son
I live my life, just like my father's done

But tell me why, every time I try
To tell you it's goodbye, I can't seem to let go
In my heart, I know I want to stay
Never run away

My father's son
I live my life as my father's done

If he'd told me, one day
That somebody would have my heart in chains
Would I believe it? No way
Made up my mind, I'd never fall that way

But it's heart over mind
Yes, I'm my father's son
