Chris de Burgh - The head and the heart
Tekst en muziek: Chris de Burgh
(1984)






Let us talk no more, let us go to sleep
Let the rain fall on the window pane
And fill the castle keep
I am weary now, weary to my bones
Weary from the travelling
And the endless country roads
That brought us here tonight for this weekend
And a chance to work it out
For we cannot live together and we cannot live apart
It’s the classical dilemma between the head and the heart



She is sleeping now, softly in the night
And in my heart of darkness she has been the only light
I am lost in love, looking at her face
And still I hear the voice of reason
Telling me to chase these dreams away
Oh, here we go again, we’re divided from the start
For we cannot live together and we cannot live apart
It’s the classical dilemma between the head and the heart
The head and the heart



Now the dawn begins and still I cannot sleep
My head is spinning round, but now the way is clear to me
There is nothing left, nothing left to show
The jury and the judge will see, it’s time to let her go
Now hear the heart, ohohoh
I believe that time will show
She will always be a part of my world
I don’t want to see her go
So, I plead my case to hear the heart
And stay



It’s time to let her go, I don’t wanna let her go
It’s time to let her go, I don’t wanna let her go
It’s time to let her go, I don’t wanna let her go
It’s time to let her go
And in this classical dilemma
I find for the heart
