The Head and the Heart  Chris de Burgh

Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
( Tab from: )
Let us talk[G] no more, let us go[Em] to sleep,
Let the rain [C]fall on the window pane,
And fill[G] the castle keep,[D]
I am weary[G] now, weary to my[Em] bones,
[C]Weary from the travelling,
And the endles[G]s country roads,[D]
That brought us here tonig[C]ht, for this weekend,[G/D] [D]
And a chance [G]to work it out,[C]
For we canno[Am]t live together, and we c[D7]annot live apart,[Em] [-] [E]
It's the clas[Am]sical dilemma betwee[D]n the head and the heart;[G] [-] [C] [-] [Dsus] [-] [D]
She is sleeping now, softly in the night,
And in my heart of darkness she has been the only light,
I am lost in love, looking at her face,
And still I hear the voice of reason,
Telling me to chase these dreams away,
Oh here we go again, we're divided from the start,
For we cannot live together, and we cannot live apart,
It's the classical dilemma between the head and the heart,
The head and the heart;
[D7sus] Now [D7]the da[G]wn begins, and still I [Em]cannot sleep,
My head is spinning round but now the way is clear to me,
There is nothing left, nothing left to show,
The jury and the judge will see, it's time to let her go,
Now hear the heart:
I believe that time will show,
She will always be a part of my world,
I don't want to see her go;
So I plea[Am]d my case to hear the hear[D]t,
And stay..[G].[-] [G/F#] [-] [Em]
[C]It's t[D]ime to let her go -[G] I don't want to let her go...[C]
It's time to let her go - I don't want to let her go...
[C]It's t[D]ime to let her go...[Em]
[E]And in this classi[Am]cal dilemma,
[D]I find for - the heart,[G]
[C] Mm_[G/D]____ [D]mm mm...[G]
