hearts on fire lyrics – gram parsons

hearts on fire
my love for you brought only misery
hearts on fire
put out the flames and set this cold heart free

one short year our love had burned
until at last i guess you learned
the art of being untrue
and then goodbye

what could i do except to cry and moan?
lord, what have i done?
once we were as sweet and warm
as the golden morning sun

hearts on fire
my love for you brought only misery
hearts on fire
put out the flames and set this cold heart free

friends say it’s just a game
and that no one is to blame
go out forget her lies
but she’ll be there and sparks will fly

my love has turned to hatred
sleep escapes me still
god, please take this heart of mine
’cause if you don’t the devil will

hearts on fire
my love for you brought only misery
hearts on fire
put out the flames and set this cold heart free
hearts on fire
