Can’t Convince My Heart

(written by Nora Tol, guitar by Kim Pendjol)

Set me free from this love
Let me start a new
After falling deep
Now what’s a heart to do?
I can’t walk away
Though I know I should
Thought that time would weaken what I feel,
but time isn’t doing me good

CHORUS 1:
Am I not enough to get you off
Hell, it shouldn’t have been this tough
We should walk inline to the same beat
But you’re throwing around no heat
This ain’t going nowhere and all of my mind knows, but..
still I can’t convince my heart to let it go

Take these thoughts away from me
For they are haunting me down
Is there an antidote that shuts the longing out
You’ve cast a spell on me
And it’s got me in it’s claws
Though  I knew damn well where it lead
I should’ve broken my fall

CHORUS 2:
Am I not the kind to get you high
Well that’s a shame, I can’t deny
We could’ve been so close to a good place
But you didn’t want to see it that way
This ain’t going nowhere and all of my mind knows, but…
still I can’t convince my heart to let it go

Sleepless nights I’ve spend just staring at the ceiling
And all the while I planned many way to fight this feeling
For every time I blinked I wished it all away
Or contemplated schemes to make you want to stay

Set me free from this love
Just let me start a new
But after falling so deep
Now what’s a heart to do?
Don’t ask me to walk away
Even though I know I should
Thought that time would weaken what I feel,
but time isn’t doing me good

CHORUS 1:
Am I not enough to get you off
Hell, it shouldn’t have been this tough
We should walk inline to the same beat
But you’re throwing around no heat
This ain’t going nowhere and all of my mind knows, but..
still I can’t convince my heart
No, I can’t convince my heart
No, I can’t convince my heart to let it go
