I want to win your heart back

I really do

I want to win your heart back.

 

I want to win your heart back

Like I was at a county fair

Or alone in an amusement park

And it was up for grabs like the huge teddy bear

 

I would drop all my tokens

And spend all my coin

Drop every single notion

That you weren’t worth knowing

 

When we were young and oh so sweet

When my loss for words was at its peak

When I would practice lines before I speak

Look at your face and forget every single one

 

I want to win your heart back

Like it was ever mine…

…Its still worth a gamble

I would write every line

 

That would get your attention

And put my mind at ease

That you could still love me

With all my misdeeds

 

I want to win your heart back

Like I was playing poker and

I lost it

in my last hand

 

Now I’m going all in

Its all or nothing

I’ll put my heart on the table

…You know I aint bluffing

 

I want to win your heart back

Even if its the last thing I do

I’ll be in an endless sleep

And I’ll be dreaming of you

    1. Thanks Seun…

  2. Why did you lose it at first?
    Go ahead and gamble for it then. Maybe you’ll appreciate it more now.

    Your ‘Its’ should have been ‘It’s’

    Well done.
