My Heart

If only I hadn't listened
To everything they said
If only I had listened
To my heart instead

He said he'd love me forever
They told me not to listen
My heart said we'd always be together
If only I would have listened

He whispered sweetly in my ear
They told me not to listen
The quarreling was all I could hear
If only I would have listened
To my heart that beat only for my love
They demanded me not to listen
Naive, adolescent, inexperienced, immature, simply too young

He would always hold me tight
They would not let me listen
Hopes of our love lasting drifted out of sight
If only I would have listened

My true love flew away
On a bird less pretty than a dove

My heart was Humpty Dumpty
Fell off the wall
Never got back up from that treacherous fall

If only I hadn't listened
To everything they said
If only I had listened
To my heart instead
