HEART LIKE A WHEEL

Some say the heart is just like a wheel
When you bend it you canít mend it
But my love for you is like a sinking ship
And my heart is on that ship out in mid-ocean

They say that death is a tragedy
It comes once and itís over
But my only wish is for that deep, dark abyss
For whatís the use of living with no true lover

And itís only love
And itís only love
That can wreck a human being and turn him inside out
That can wreck a human being and turn him inside out

When harm is done no love can be won
I know it happens frequently
What I donít understand, "Oh please God, hold my hand"
Is why it should have happened to me

And itís only love
And itís only love
That can wreck a human being and turn him inside out
That can wreck a human being and turn him inside out

Some say the heart is just like a wheel
When you bend it you canít mend it
But my love for you is like a sinking ship
And my heart is on that ship out in mid-ocean

And my heart is on that ship out in mid-ocean
