what the heart wants lyrics – collin raye

she met him down at the laundromat
three a.m. on a washing machine
they sat, and talked till dawn

he bought her breakfast at a small cafe
the morning turned into the rest of the day
when the day was gone

he thought that she’d surely run away
no fairytale ever started this way but

it ain’t the mind that calls the shots round here
when stronger powers pull two bodies near
nothing on earth can interfere
when love is what the heart wants

they made a wish on the evening star
from a roof top high above the boulevard
up in the twilight sky

he held her hand as she held her breath
two lonely hearts beating scared to death
of a chance to fly

giving in to the arms of fate
this isn’t quite like the plans that they made but
