I've got a Red Hot Heart

I'd heard rumors and I'd heard talk

About the trail you'd left of broken hearts

About the sea of tears too wide to cross

But a little bad press has never scared me off

So I burned a path to figure out

How to get me some of what you got

I've got a red hot heart

If the talk is true your's is the same

And we should be together

And let our passions fan love's flame

 

When I looked for you I almost passed you by

You were so cool and calm I thought my friends had lied

But I thought so much reserve must make you wild inside

It was there and then that I knew I had to get some of what you got

 

I've got a red hot heart

If the talk is true your's is the same

And we should be together

And let our passions fan love's flame
