Back to Till It Happens To You lyrics

Till It Happens To You

I know what I said was heat of the moment
But there's a little truth in
Between the words we've spoken
It's a little late now to fix the heart that's broken

Please don't ask me where I'm going
'Cause I don't know
No, I don't know anymore

It used to feel like heaven
It used to feel like May
I used to hear those violins
Playing our strings like a symphony
Now they've gone away

Nobody wants to face the truth
But you won't believe what love can do
Till it happens to you
Till it happens to you

Went to the old flat
Guess I was trying to turn the clock back
How come that nothing feels
The same, now when I'm with you
We used to stay up all night
In the kitchen when our love was new

Ooh love, I'm a fool to believe in you
'Cause I don't know
No, I don't know anymore

It used to feel like heaven
It used to feel like May
I used to hear those violins
Playing our strings like a symphony
Now they've gone away

Nobody wants to know the truth
Until their heart's broken
Don't you dare tell them
What you think to do till they get over

You can only learn these things from experience
When you get older
I just wish that someone would have told me

Till it happens to you
Till it happens to you
Till it happens to you
