Verse 1

Should have ran away at the first sign,

The first time he smiled and I told my heart to

Halt, halt, halt.

Nobody is there to catch your love,

It'll come back stinging like a boomerang,

Lock it up in a vault.

Yet I went ahead, and worshipped him,

Gave him my everything without a promise,

And it's all my fault.

Chorus

And I told my heart a thousand times,

Screamed and yelled and begged the fool to

Halt, halt, halt.

Verse 2

But I don't regret it, not even a single bit,

I needed to know magic in its tender sweetness,

And just a touch of salt.

He smiles, and the heartbreak is worth it,

He looks at me, and I'm grateful for every breathe,

And my world is stalled.

You don't have a choice with those eyes,

And a feeling in your heart that you've found it,

That life has called.

Chorus

But I told my heart a thousand times,

Screamed and yelled and begged the fool to

Halt, halt, halt.

Bridge

Halt, halt, halt, you fool,

How can you forget the rule?

You're not allowed to be happy, remember?

You're just driving yourself towards another scar,

So halt.

Halt, halt, halt.

Chorus

And I told my heart a thousand times,

Screamed and yelled and begged the fool to

Halt, halt, halt.

End chorus

And I told my heart a thousand times,

Screamed and yelled and begged the fool to

Halt, halt, halt.

Should have ran away at the first sign,

The first time he smiled and I told my heart to

Halt, halt, halt.
