  • In the dark of the night I found
    Without my love, my love
    these words are not a bit profound
    if it's just another cheap line flung

    Outside ecstatic love
    what did we think we'd find?
    Over that broken road
    out past the land mines

    I'm gonna keep your heart
    I'm gonna keep your heart
    With the world all falling apart
    I'm gonna keep your heart

    Can I coax it out its shell
    Brush the dust off
    Get its wings on
    In this little bell
    We will also feel the singing, oh

    Shine on, light of love
    On all these bruises and scars
    Ruins in every less
    But it can't cancel out the stars

    Dropped all your clothes and life
    Wonder who won mine
    Kneeling above this playful body
    Teach Superman to fly

    How'm I gonna keep your heart?
    How'm I gonna keep your heart?
    If the world all falls apart
    How'm I gonna keep your heart?

    Time alone will tell
    If you're the kind who keeps the veil on
    Biding time will tell us
    When and if to sail on

    All these blues I have cried
    Seem to have come undone
    Tried all the new designs
    Still ended up in love

    Still we're kind of shy
    You've nothing to be ashamed of
    Though its hard to tell
    If I'll ever feel the same love

    I'm gonna keep your heart
    I'm gonna keep your heart
    If the world all falls apart
