  • Johnny saw her riding on a street car named Desire, his fate was sealed
    She could see him coming like a hundred other liars, it was no big deal
    Rosa had streets
    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

    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

    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 Writer/s: DESMOND CHILD, HOLLY KNIGHT, PAUL STANLEY
