HEARTS ON FIRE
Gram Parsons


Hearts on fire

My love for you brought only misery

Hearts on fire

Put out the flames and set this cold heart free

One short year our love burned

Until at last I guess you learned

The art of being untrue and then goodbye

What could I do except to cry and moan

Lord, what have I done?


Once we were as sweet and warm as the golden morning sun

Hearts on fire

My love for you brought only misery

Hearts on fire

Put out the flames and set this cold heart free


Friends say it's just a game

And that no one is to blame

Go out forget her lies

But she'll be there and sparks will fly

My love has turned to hatred

Sleep escapes me still

God, please take this heart of mine

Cause if you don't the devil will

Hearts on fire

My love for you brought only misery

Hearts on fire

Put out the flames and set this cold heart free

Hearts on fire
