Affairs of the Heart Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
She looked at me across the room
Emerging from a silk cocoon
Along beneath venetian chandeliers
Against the moon her body rocks
Her eyes were cunning like a fox
The wings of passion fly on all frontiers
Verse 2
From this fire there's no returning
No escape your heart is burning
Love becomes a lethal weapon
No one is to smart
In affairs of the heart
Verse 3
Now upon the bridge she waits
Dreaming of our tangled fates
Her face was like a ghost with eyes of jade
I fell just like a falling star
A victim of this coup d'etat
I could not see behind this masquerade
Verse 4
From this fire there's no returning
No escape your heart is burning
Love becomes a lethal weapon
Be careful where you start
In affairs of the heart
Verse 5
Sometimes I think I'll never learn
Were all those promises in vain
Do the wings of fire still remain
Verse 6
All is fair in love and war
The tender draw the shortest straw
Like autumn leaves they vanish in the air
Is this the time we say good-bye
I call her room there's no reply
Tonight we end this fleeting love affair
Verse 7
From this fire there's no returning
No escape your heart is burning
Love becomes a lethal weapon
Sharper than a dart
In affairs of the heart
