LYRICS TO DAVE'S SONGS - TITLES STARTING WITH H

Headstrong
Words and Music by Dave Laurence • From the album Analog Soul

She said I miss you, she didn’t mean to lie:
It’s force of habit from feelings long gone by.
I sat and listened, not knowing what to do,
Lost in the moment, I said I miss you too.
But I not her and she not me, we miss the way it used to be,
Pretending it could ever be, and wishing it was right.
But trust has rolled on down the track, it’s not the only thing we lack,
So when she calls I hold it back, and try to keep things light.

I’ve gotta be headstrong, ‘cause my heart is still too weak,
I’ve gotta be headstrong, I’m doomed if I let it speak.
I’m growing old while contemplating, gotta stop it before it starts,
I know it’s cold and calculating, but my head’s just not relating to my heart.

She said sleep tight, babe, when she hung up the phone,
I lay my head back but sleep left me alone.
I feel so empty, as empty as my bed,
Lost in the silence of three words left unsaid.
We wished upon the stars above, but we weren’t wishing hard enough,
Or maybe it was really love, I guess I’ll never know.
I don’t know what I’m wishing for, but there’s one thing I know for sure,
She doesn’t need me anymore, it’s time for me to go.

I’ve gotta be headstrong, ‘cause my heart is still too weak,
I’ve gotta be headstrong, I’m doomed if I let it speak.
I’m growing old while contemplating, gotta stop it before it starts,
I know it’s cold and calculating, but my head’s just not relating to my heart.
