  • When I was young and unafraid, it was all a game,
    I was wrong to tell you that.
    And when I thought all was fair in love and war,
    I was wrong to tell you that.
    But it always sounds so good in my head, you know
    I don't have to tell you that.
    Better watch yourself, you know me well
    I'm on a trail and here I come

    Tell your heart heads up
    Tell your heart heads up

    Well I don't have that thing inside that tells me, when I've said enough
    I was gonna tell you that.
    And I don't have a perfect line for every fight to cheer us up
    Or I was wrong to tell you that?
    And I know no one keeps you on guard more then I do
    But I don't have to tell you that
    Better watch yourself, you know me well
    I'm on your trail and here I come

    Tell your heart heads up
    Tell your heart heads up

    And I don't get it
    I don't know, what do you want?
    Honey you better
    Tell you heart heads up Writer/s: DARREN KING, PAUL MEANY
