My mother told me to break up with you,
She didn't think you were good enough to take this prize,
She didn't see any sparkle in your eyes,
She said you acted like a boy, and you wore too much corderoy

But my heart was set on you,
My heart was set on you,
Besides, her taste was lousy, and she never had a clue,
And my heart was set on you

My roommate begged me not to be with you,
She couldn't stand the way you always left some toothpaste in the sink,
She was amazed at your capacity not to think,
She said your head was in a cloud, and you talked way too loud

But my heart was set on you,
My heart was set on you,
I figured she was jealous that I'd found someone new,
And my heart was set on you,

It's a gamble,
Falling in love is sort of like Russian Roulette,
Yet in spite of all their warnings,
I just knew you were a solid bet!

A psychic swore you weren't the one for me,
She couldn't find you in my aura as I sat their in her room,
She said I shouldn't play the bride to your groom,
I got her message loud and clear,
And shoved it out the other ear,

'cause my heart was set on you,
My heart was set on you,
Why would I believe a bunch of Tarot cards were true,
When my heart was set on you?

It was terrible to face them when it all fell apart,
When I was the last to know,
Yet there they were to catch the pieces of my breaking heart,
With the grace not to say,
I told you so.

And now, to see you after all this time,
I'm reminded of the clarity I had back then,
Will I ever trust that feeling again?
I was so willing to fall,
But it's nice to recall how my...

I'll always count myself among the lucky few,
To have loved,
The way I loved,
When my heart was set on you
