Straight From The Heart

Transcribed by Paul Gongola

You’ve heard every line before

My life’s a revolving door

With no way out and no way in

You know just what’s on my mind

Could you take a chance one more time

Maybe we could start all over again

Straight from the heart

Baby my love

Your eyes can’t tell a lie

I can see what you’re feeling inside

Don’t give up before we start

‘Cause this time love is

Straight from the heart

I know what they’re telling you

I wish I could say that it’s not true

Love is so hard to find

But I never took the time

I never let you in

Please let me try again

Straight from the heart

Your eyes can’t tell a lie

I can see what you’re feeling inside

Don’t give up before we start

‘Cause this time love is

Straight from the heart

I thought I knew about love

But I didn’t know at all

Didn’t take the time to see

Until I started to fall

Straight from the heart
