one word (straight to the heart) lyrics – chris de burgh

one word
one heart
one night
is all i want
one word
one heart
one girl
is waitin’ there for me

midnight and all is well
i hear the mission bell
out on the road, nothin’ is movin’
as i speed from town to town
(hey, hey)
two hearts are beating fast
but they are still many miles apart
oh, the moon was shinin’
on a distant sh*r*
burnin’ like a fire in my heart
i got to see her
i got to say, hey, hey

one word
one heart
one night
is all i want
one word
one heart
one girl
is waitin’ there for me

i never knew i cared so much before
i gotta tell her tonight
(straight to the heart)
i’m gonna tell her tonight
(straight to the heart)
i gotta tell her tonight
(straight to the heart)
like a cannonball

headlights are blazing through
turn on the radio, i hear the news
hand on the wheel, foot on the floor
and on, and on, and on we go
(and ohh)
this car is like a friend
bring her the message that i want to send
oh, the dawn was breakin’
and i saw the sun
burnin’ like a fire on the bay
i’m nearly there now
i’m gonna say, hey, hey

one word
one heart
one night
is all i want
one word
one heart
one girl
is waitin’ there for me

i never knew i cared so much before
i gotta tell her tonight
(straight to the heart)
i’m gonna tell her tonight
(straight to the heart)
i gotta tell her tonight
(straight to the heart)
like a cannonball

one word
(yes)
one heart
one night
(yes)
one girl
(yes)

i gotta tell her tonight
(straight to the heart)
i gotta tell her tonight
(straight to the heart)
i gotta give her my love
(straight to the heart)
i gotta give her my love
(straight to the heart)
i gotta tell her myself
(straight to the heart)
i gotta tell her tonight
(straight to the heart)
like a cannonball
yes
