You say one thing and then I go turn it around again
Working things over better left unsaid
Spinning around in my head
Taking a moment too personally

I have told you just half the words I've wanted to give to you
Fear of rejection keeps my heart at bay
Feelings I'd rather not say
I'd rather have you close than never at all

But every now and then when my world is closing in
I feel you breezin' through my mind
I can attempt to close my eyes, I can avoid the wrong or right
But something deep inside says my heart wants what it wants

Baby, stay away, do the right thing
I know I should run but my heart wants what it wants
Baby, stay away, do the right thing
You know the heart wants what it wants

You do one thing and then I go
Always imagining, reciprocating feelings that aren't there
Sometimes I think you're aware
Your body language it gives you away

Maybe I should run
Turn my back
Head for the sun
Feelings left to come undone

Maybe you like what's goin' on
Deep down inside I know it's wrong
I know I should run
But the heart wants what it wants

Baby, stay away, do the right thing
I know I should run but my heart wants what it wants
Baby, stay away, do the right thing
The heart wants what it wants

Even thought I know it's never a love affair
I'm makin' plans with the ghost of what was there
I've become a desperate fool
And it's all because of you

Baby, stay away, do the right thing
Because my heart wants what it wants
Baby, stay away, do the right thing
I know I should run but my the heart wants what the heart wants
What the heart wants

Baby, stay away, do the right thing
I know I should run but my heart wants what it wants
Baby, stay away, do the right thing baby
The heart wants what the heart needs
What the heart wants
Can the heart get what the heart wants?
