  • I'm a hearbreak beat
    Yeah, all night long
    And nobody don't dance
    On the edge of the dark

    We've got the radio on
    And it feels like love
    But it don't mean a lot
    And it feels like love

    And it's all that we've got
    There's a heartbreak beat
    Playing all night long
    Down on my street

    And it feels like love
    Got the radio on
    And it's all that we need
    There's a heartbreak beat

    And it feels like love
    There's a heartbreak beat
    And it feels like love
    And the beat don't stop

    And we talk so tough
    And there's a perfect kiss
    Somewhere out in the dark
    But a kiss ain't enough

    And the world don't stop
    Everytime that you call
    And the world don't stop
    Everytime that you fall

    There's a heartbreak beat
    Playing all night long
    Down on my street
    And it feels like love

    Got the radio on
    And it's all that we need
    There's a heartbreak beat
    And it feels like love

    There's a heartbreak beat
    And it feels like love
    I'm a hearbreak beat
    Yeah, all night long

    And nobody don't dance
    On the edge of the dark
    We've got the radio on
    And it feels like love

    But it don't mean a lot
    And it feels like love
    And it's all that we've got
    There's a heartbreak beat

    Playing all night long
    Down on my street
    And it feels like love
    Got the radio on

    And it's all that we need
    There's a heartbreak beat
    And it feels like love
    There's a heartbreak beat

    And it feels like love
    There's a heartbreak beat

    I'm a heartbreak beat
    I'm a heartbreak beat
    I'm a heartbreak beat Writer/s: JOHN ASHTON, RICHARD LOFTHOUSE BUTLER, TIMOTHY BUTLER
