Duncan Sheik - This Is How My Heart Heard Lyrics

This is how my heart heard
That little thing in tears they call the truth
It said, be done with her, she's done with you
This is how my heart heard

This is how my arms burn
That used to hold her tight until the dawn
And now they weep to find that she is gone
This is how my heart heard

I forgot the taste of fears
And how they haunt the lips you're kissing
And how the soul can waste its tears
On someone who is missing

And how I shed such tears but never cry
This is how I want her
And how I kiss her lips and taste goodbye
This is how I want her

I forgot the taste of fears
And how they haunt the lips you're kissing
And how the soul can waste its tears
On someone who is missing

This is how I want her
And how I shed such tears but never cry
And how I kiss her lips and taste goodbye
This is how my heart heard
This is how my heart heard
This is how my heart heard
