1st Place
“My Heart Knows Something That My Head Don’t Know”
James Childs
Nashville, Tennessee

It took a cold and lonely winter
To make my peace without you here
But I came out a better man,
Cut my ties with best laid plans,
Wished you well and walked away

You were supposed to be a memory
I was supposed to have moved on
I made up my mind
Not to waste my time
You were never mine to love

But just when I thought that it was safe to dream again,
You show up unannounced as if my heart had better plans

Cause my heart knows something that my head don’t know
Holding onto everything I had let go
I guess I never let it show
But my heart knows something that my head don’t know
My heart knows something that my head don’t know

Now every time I lay my head down
I steal a few more hours with your sweet memory
Then daylight pulls me back again,
Reality comes crashing in,
Midnight dreams melt in the sun

Just when I thought that i could find somebody new,
I close my eyes and find that it always comes back to you

Cause my heart knows something that my head don’t know
Holding onto everything I had let go
I guess I never let it show
But my heart knows something that my head don’t know
My heart knows something that my head don’t know

Maybe all my resolutions
Are nothing more than self-delusion
Cause i see you every night
Baby it’s no use to fight it

Cause my heart knows something that my head don’t know
Holding onto everything I had let go
I guess I never let it show
But my heart knows something that my head don’t know
My heart knows something that my head don’t know
