  • I knew there was a danger
    But couldn't resist
    The touch of a stranger
    The thrill of his kiss
    'cause this time

    I thought it was love
    I thought it was heaven
    Having the time of my life
    I know it's not true

    Oh never trust a stranger with your heart
    Oh no, never trust a stranger with your heart

    My world is in pieces
    You've stolen my pride
    And I'm left defeated
    And crushed by your lies

    I thought it was love
    I thought it was heaven
    Having the time of my life
    I know it's not true

    Oh never trust a stranger with your heart
    Oh no, never trust a stranger with your heart

    Like a tiger you hunted and tracked me down
    Savaged my soul and took over control
    And then when you'd used all the love you found
    You left without trace
    Not a note or a single goodbye

    I thought it was love
    I thought it was heaven
    Having the time of my life
    I know it's not true

    Oh never trust a stranger with your heart
    Oh no, never trust a stranger with your heart

  • Ian Mcgregor Hart from Stocksfield, NorthumberlandThe best songs are written from the heart. Love Kim Wilde's music. This is my favourite Kim Wilde song.
