Marvin, that 4M chord at the end of the first two lines of the 1st & 2nd verses threw me at first, but as I listened to the song the second time around, I looked forward to hearing it - very interesting.  It’s too bad Tom Petty isn’t with us any longer, as I could sure hear him making this a rock song.  Another good job, My Friend!!!

Sorry, Marvin, that’s a 3m, not a 4M.

“Though I was a man of little persistence
You were a woman prone to resistance”—Great line, BUT I would be tempted to get rid of the initial word “though” (as it’s not necessary)—overall, pretty solid.

Choices of the Heart

Written by Marvin Adcock

We didn’t choose to fall in love - it kinda just sucked us in
A decision that simply was - made without questionin’
It wasn’t a roll of the dice - we knew right from the start
Some things you don’t even think twice - they’re choices of the heart

Though I was a man of little persistence
You were a woman prone to resistance
Two hearts opened up to unexpected love
We were caught completely off guard
By choices of the heart

The first time I laid eyes on you - my heart told my mind and soul
Somethin’ they both already knew - this time I’m takin’ control
Typically you’d shrug me off - with a stinging remark
Just like me you were already lost - to choices of the heart

Though I was a man of little persistence
You were a woman prone to resistance
Two hearts opened up to unexpected love
We were caught completely off guard
By choices of the heart

We spent that night - just talkin’ and laughin’
It felt so right - just lettin’ love happen

Though I was a man of little persistence
You were a woman prone to resistance
Two hearts opened up to unexpected love
We were caught completely off guard
By choices of the heart
Choices of the heart
Choices of the heart
