about

Heartache is the debut single release from the forthcoming project , The Mixstory, Vol. 1: Tales of Love. The song is reminiscent of the Shakespearean phrase "to be or not to be." It is the contemplation of love, desire, and destiny.

Carlena not only provides a story line that demands a listening ear, but she also adds an array of colors with the vocal arrangement. The melody is simple yet complex as the song builds to a climax.

The Mixstory, Vol. 1 was released in December of 2014. The project is available via iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, CDbaby.com, and physical copies via www.carlenaprophet.com

lyrics

It’s so crazy that I feel this way
It’s like a flashback of my yesterday
The way I wanted it to be
But I accepted we were history
But now my past is chasing me

It took so long for me to get here
And sometimes I don’t know where I’m going
I said no looking back—straight ahead—keep moving
But this road can get so hard
Make me wish that I was where you are

(but all I know is)

I don’t wanna have a heart full of heartache
I don’t wanna have a heart full of heartache
It feels like I’m reconnecting to my yesterday
But I don’t wanna have a heart full of heartache

There’s something about you
I feel it ain’t good for me
But it’s a new day
The past had an end
Can we begin again?

Contemplating the way that I’m handlin’ emotions I’m feelin’
I know I said I was through
I’m questioning what to do
Is my future with you?

I promise I don’t wanna heart full of heartache
It feels like I’m reconnecting to my yesterday
And my mind replays memories
Will they ever fade away?
Cause I don’t wanna have a heart full of heartache

Maybe I could love you and maybe you could love me
But deep inside I know this ain’t my destiny
I know that I’ll regret it
So maybe I should leave it where we departed at sea
Why return to Egypt when God has set me free?

I refuse to have a heart full of heartache
I refuse to reconnect myself to those yesterdays
And my mind replays memories
Of why I walked away
Cause my heart was filled with nothing but heartache

I refuse, I refuse, I refuse
To have a heart full of heartache
I refuse, I refuse, I refuse
To have a heart full of heartache

No more pain
(Promise I don’t wanna, have a heart full of heartache)
No more pain
(Promise I don’t wanna, have a heart full of heartache)
No more pain, no more pain
