"Fanatic Heart" (karaoke)

"Fanatic Heart" (sheet music)


I remember your eyes from the 12th of July

When the sirens were screamin' and the flames lit the sky

And you held me so tight thought you'd never let go

'Til the bullets exploded on the pavement below

Then I laid you down next to a burnt out car

Screamed out for help [but] you were gone too far

Still got that picture of you locked away from the start

Developin' inside my fanatic heart

 

I went around in a daze for a couple of years

With the blood in my veins frozen over with tears

And I did anything that they asked me to do

'Cause all I could see was that picture of you

And the young ones passin' by'd say, "How's about you? Real hard, man?"

Deep down inside I was just a castle of sand

Still got that picture of you locked away from the start

Developin' inside my fanatic heart

 

Then they took me inside, threw me up against a wall

They put electric prods on my chest and my balls

And they told me to sign things that I knew weren't true

And in the end, I did what they told me to do

Then they locked me up and threw away the key

Left me there with just your memory

 

Now I walk through New York like a grey silhouette

Tryin' hard to remember what I'm supposed to forget

That look in your eyes on the 12th of July

When the sirens were screamin' and the flames lit the sky

Hey, I sleep with other women and I hold them through the night

'Cause all I wanna do is just get on with my life

But that picture of you won't let me make a new start

It's frozen inside my fanatic heart
