    (What the heart wants)
    (What the heart wants)

    You got me sippin' on something
    I can't compare to nothing
    I've ever known, I'm hoping
    That after this fever I'll survive
    I know I'm acting a bit crazy
    Strung out, a little bit hazy
    Hand over heart, I'm praying
    That I'm gonna make it out alive

    The bed's getting cold and you're not here
    The future that we hold is so unclear
    But I'm not alive until you call
    And I'll bet the odds against it all
    Save your advice 'cause I won't hear
    You might be right but I don't care
    There's a million reasons why I should give you up
    But the heart wants what it wants
    The heart wants what it wants

    You got me scattered in pieces
    Shining like stars and screaming
    Lighting me up like Venus
    But then you disappear and make me wait
    And every second's like torture
    Hell over trip, no more so
    Finding a way to let go
    Baby, baby, no I can't escape

    The bed's getting cold and you're not here
    The future that we hold is so unclear
    But I'm not alive until you call
    And I'll bet the odds against it all
    Save your advice 'cause I won't hear
    You might be right but I don't care
    There's a million reasons why I should give you up
    But the heart wants what it wants
    The heart wants what it wants
    The heart wants what it wants
    The heart wants what it wants

    This is a modern fairy tale
    No happy endings
    No wind in our sails
    But I can't imagine a life without
    Breathless moments
    Breaking me down, down, down, down

    The bed's getting cold and you're not here
    The future that we hold is so unclear
    But I'm not alive until you call
    And I'll bet the odds against it all
    Save your advice 'cause I won't hear
    You might be right but I don't care
    There's a million reasons why I should give you up
    But the heart wants what it wants
    The heart wants what it wants
    The heart wants what it wants
    The heart wants what it wants

    The heart wants what it wants, baby
    It wants what it wants, baby
    It wants what it wants
    It wants what it wants

    The heart wants what it wants, baby
    It wants what it wants Writer/s: ANTONINA ARMATO, TIM JAMES, DAVID JOST, SELENA GOMEZ
