Verse 1

Yes, the heart wants what it wants,

But mine is frozen in my chest.

So I don't have to give in,

I can put my doomed love to rest.

Verse 2

Oh, but how can I forget

The precious moments spent with him?

Come back to me, oh, my love,

Even as a shadow in dreams!

Chorus

I've been at war with my own self,

Apollo versus Dionysus.

And I'm breaking into pieces,

Like I'm made of fragile chunks of glass.

Heart versus head,

I'm bleeding red,

And no matter what I choose,

In the end I'm bound to lose.

Verse 3

So I take a stand to cease

All attacks now from either side.

Let time decide who will win.

I'll let my ship sail with the tide.

Chorus

I've been at war with my own self,

Apollo versus Dionysus.

And I'm breaking into pieces,

Like I'm made of fragile chunks of glass.

Heart versus head,

I'm bleeding red,

And no matter what I choose,

In the end I'm bound to lose

Bridge

Myself, and as a battle wound,

I'll carry a scar that'll never heal.

If my heart wins, there's only pain.

And if my head wins, I'll never feel.

Chorus

I've been at war with my own self,

Apollo versus Dionysus.

And I'm breaking into pieces,

Like I'm made of fragile chunks of glass.

Heart versus head,

I'm bleeding red,

And no matter what I choose,

In the end I'm bound to lose.

Outro

Yes, no matter what I choose,

In the end I'm bound to lose.
