RELIGION OF THE HEART (Demo)

(Rick Springfield/Jeff Silverman)

I saw you watchin' the priest

As he walked up with the box

He looked just like James Dean

Ya put on your sunglasses

Ya held your breath

You thought he was beautiful

But then you heard his silent scream

As he spread the dead man's ashes

 

You're always tryin' to heal yourself

Through someone else's sin

Turn the thieves out of the temple baby

Let me in

 

It's the religion of the heart

Religion of the heart

You're my religion

It's the religion of the heart

You are the reason I breathe

You're in my system

Yeah

Religion of the heart

 

You drink their wine
But you're still thirsty all the time
No miracles tonight

No midnight masses
It'll be okay in the cool clear
Bright light of the day

And I'm just your confessor

When the passion passes

 

You're always tryin' to find your worth
In the eyes of someone new

And I am no king of kings, baby

But my aim is true

In the religion of the heart

 

Religion of the heart

You're my religion

It's the religion of the heart

You are the reason I breathe

You're in my system

Yeah

Religion of the heart

 

You think that I am only joking

But it all comes down to nothin'

And I'm just talking through the beer

But I'm not, no I'm not

And I'll stand in the field of fire

 

Yeah

It's the religion of the heart

Religion of the heart

You're my religion

It's the religion of the heart

You are the reason I breathe

You're in my system

Yeah

Religion of the heart

 

Oh, religion of the heart
