"Listen To Your Heart" as written by Per H�kan Gessle and Mats Arne Persson....
I know there's something in the wake of your smile.
I get a notion from the look in your eyes, yea.
You've built a love but that love falls apart.
Your little piece of heaven turns too dark.
Listen to your heart when he's calling for you.
Listen to your heart there's nothing else you can do.
I don't know where you're going and I don't know why,
But listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye.
Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile.
The precious moments are all lost in the tide, yea.
They're swept away and nothing is what is seems,
The feeling of belonging to your dreams.
Listen to your heart when he's calling for you.
Listen to your heart there's nothing else you can do.
I don't know where you're going and I don't know why,
But listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye.
And there are voices that want to be heard.
So much to mention but you can't find the words.
The sense of magic, the beauty that's been
When love was wilder than the wind.
Listen to your heart when he's calling for you.
Listen to your heart there's nothing else you can do.
I don't know where you're going and I don't know why,
But listen to your heart before
Listen to your heart when he's calling for you.
Listen to your heart take a listen there's nothing else you can do.
I don't know where you're going and I don't know why,
But listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye.
Listen to your heart
Listen to your heart take a listen to it
Listen to your heart take a listen to it, listen to your heart
Yeah listen to your heart
Listen to your heart
Listen to your heart
Listen to your heart
Listen to your heart
Listen to your heart
Listen to your heart
Listen to your heart
Listen to your heart

    General CommentI love this song. It's about true love, and it makes you feel so much emotion. I feel this song is about "forbidden" love, you know, like two people who truly deeply love each other, but can't always be together of the stupid restrictions imposed on them by society. The meaning and message is to always listen to your heart and realize that true love is the most important thing, and that it transcends everything, all those meaningless boundaries that people draw and restrictions societies impose...if you find your soulmate, then that's all that matters, and those two people should be together, because love knows no boundaries. That's what this song is about, and that's a very true and beautiful message. Two people have true love, but other people or society doesn't approve, and the song is telling them to listen to their hearts because and be together no matter what, because true love conquers all and it's the only thing that matters and has meaning.

    General CommentI think this song is one Roxette`s best! To me the meaning is that you should follow your heart and not be led by what your mind or someone else might tell you. for example.... people around you might tell you a guy is not good for you, but you need to do what you feel inside yourself and "Listen To Your Heart" first. Basically decide weather YOU truly want to be parted.

    General Commenti love the piano in this song! tho, i'm a sucker for songs like these and piano type songs :D This song is so great, it's very beautiful.

    It's basically just saying listen to your heart before you can't go back, make sure this is what your heart wants rather than what you think you want..

    General CommentAnother singer (D.H.T.?) did a remake of this song. I rememeber the first time hearing it. I bawled like a baby because it hits close to home but in a TOTALLY DIFFERENT WAY...You see, I knew this guy Wesley during my child/teenhood. We were pretty close friends and secretly went outon and off. Long story short I caught him with another guy. I was confused ("I don't know where you're going and I don't know why") because that was the last thing I ever expected but I accepted it. Wesley felt really bad and was about to dump the guy because of our nastey initial confrontation but after things calmed down I told him he needed to do what he feels in his heart is right. I havn't heard from him in years but i have heardfrom friends that they are still going out... I really loved (still love?) him too but I have learned to move on.

    General CommentI fell into an odd love with this song. I, too, am a sucker for a heartfelt vocal and a bit of acoustic guitar or piano (Amy Lee's "You" and Evanescence "My Immortal"). I was listening to the radio and it came on, and my mom told me it was an old song from the '90's... and I was almost in tears because it reminded me of about any relationship I'd ever had. Not necesssarily a relationship with a significant other, but one with a friend or relative... mom, dad, sister. To me, it's describing that time when things just get... messy. And everything's confusing and kind of rough, and you aren't quite sure what to do, so before you make any decisions, listen to yourself, look inside yourself for the answer. You feel like you're going to go crazy, like your head'll burst, but you shouldn't let it. You alone know all the answers, you alone know what's best for you, so you should do what's best for you, but before you storm out that door or buckle under the pressure, listen to what your heart is telling you to do. Everything can be fixed, the broken and the shattered. And you can fix it. I don't know, but that's what I got out of it. Derned thing... almost making me cry. But it really is beautiful.
