HIDE YOUR HEART

Writers: Holly Knight/ Paul Stanley/ Desmond Child

 

Johnny saw her riding on a streetcar named Desire

His fate was sealed

She could see him coming like a hundred other liars

It was no big deal

 

Rosa had a lover on the shady side of town

Tito, he was king of the streets

And she was his possession like a jewel on his crown

Johnny better run, better run

 

Better hide your heart, better hold on tight

Say your prayers cause there’s trouble tonight

When pride and love battle with desire

Better hide your heart ’cause you’re playing with fire

 

The ride was over but the story doesn’t end

He took her heart

She looked him in the eye

and said they couldn’t meet again

You could see the trouble start

 

The word went out that Rosa’s messin’ with someone

It was on the street

Tito looked for Johnny with a vengeance and a gun

Johnny better run, better run

 

Better hide your heart, better hold on tight

Say your prayers ’cause there’s trouble tonight

When pride and love battle with desire

Better hide your heart, ’cause you’re playing with fire, come on

 

Yes Johnny’s holdin’ Rosa on a rooftop in the night

As time stood still

They couldn’t hear him coming ’til he had them both in sight

You could feel a chill

 

A shot ran out like thunder and the blood was on her hands

With nothing won

When someone lies dying, lovers finally understand

 

Baby hide your heart better hold on tight

Say your prayers, ’cause there’s trouble tonight

When pride and love battle with desire

Better hide your heart cause you’re playing with fire come on

 

Better hide your heart, hold on tight

Cause when pride and love battle with desire

Hide your heart, ’cause you’re playing with fire

Hide your heart, hold on tight

Say your prayers, ’cause there’s trouble tonight

Yeah, yeah, yeah

 

Pride and love battle with desire

Hide your heart, ’cause you’re playing with fire

Hide your heart, hold on tight
