Heart Like A Wheel

Album: Romantic? (1990)
Charted: 29 32
  • Calling up the promised land. Johnny Seven´s coming over
    The sea. He´s taking your time. When you want to be free.

    Holding out a helping hand. Are you ready for a real
    Career? Will you be so cool. When it´s happening here?

    It don´t say nothing that I haven´t heard. If what I hear is
    True. You won´t keep the law with a broken word. So what
    Are you going to do?

    Heart like a wheel. Turning away from anything that´s real.
    Heart like a wheel. Changing in time. Beating colder steel.

    Pass the message around the world. The medium is in
    Retreat. The power is here. And packing some heat.

    Sell your soul to a holy war. Set the captive free. We make
    No promises anymore. But it isn´t fooling me

    Heart like a wheel. Turning away from anything that´s real.
    Heart like a wheel. Changing in time beating colder steel.

    You can´t keep the wheels turnign anymore. With anger,
    Blood and fear. Or make any friends with an M16. When
    You blast your way through here.

    Heart like a wheel. Turning away from anything that´s real.
    Heart like a wheel. Changing in time beating colder steel.

    Heart like a wheel. Turning away from anything that´s real.
    Heart like a wheel. Changing in time beating colder steel.

    Heart like a wheel. Turning away from anything that´s real.
    Heart like a wheel. Driving the world is going to be a steal.Writer/s: JO CALLIS, EUGENE REYNOLDS

  • Clare from London, United KingdomThis song is such a good sound and the lyrics definitely have a religious message but the song is written in metaphors, the song is basically about the world turning away from what's real and human to what isn't.
    It starts with the promised land, moves onto God's word and spreading it, then onto how we're killing ourselves with anger, blood and fear.
    We can't keep fooling each other with our steely cold heartedness, all we need is love - Wake Up!
  • Matt from Gadsden, AlThis is not the last hit for the Human League. Tell Me When hit #31 (#9 Top 40 Mainstream) in 1995
