I Sent My Heart Somewhere that Day
I sent my heart somewhere that day,
Somewhere very far away,
I threw my heart away that day,
That day, the very same.
I willed my heart to go that day,
To make my feelings go, they say,
I told my heart to stay away,
That horrible, bashful day.
I haven’t a heart to this day,
Where in the flower fields I lay,
I lost my heart so long, that day,
Without feelings I stayed awake.
My heart disappeared, in a way,
From myself, feeling very grey,
My emotions went somewhere too, that day,
Now I don’t trust what they say.
When my heart went away that day,
A terrible lie they did say,
I don’t believe them, now I’m a ray,
Of beautiful sunshine throughout the dark grey.
I sent my heart away that day,
Oh, that wonderful fateful day!
My heart would never stay away,
Not till this very day.
