Bonnie Tyler – When Love Attacks lyrics

(rick derringer/ larry sloman)
Producer for bonnie: rick derringer
Recorded in 1983 for rick derringer's 'good dirty fun' album. He had previously been working with bonnie on 'faster than the speed of night' and later asked her to duet. Lyrics taken from careful listening.

He's bitter, so blue
Cold armour, see through
Heavy heart, heavy head
Walking tall, walking dead

Then love attacks
And you can try to hide
But in the end there's nowhere
It can get inside
A triple-locked apartment
A secret compartment
Can't conceal the treasure
When love comes to take your heart away

She's fragile, so torn
Spanish lace, so shop-worn
There's a rainbow
And there's a stream
A total eclipse
Of a dream

Then love attacks
And you can try to hide
But in the end there's nowhere
It can get inside
A triple-locked apartment
A secret compartment
Can't conceal the treasure
When love comes to take your heart away

Now he can seem tough
You think he must be scarred
But if you scratch below the surface you'll find
That he's just love-starved

She's so hungry
For something new
Or something borrowed
Out of the blue

Then love attacks
And you can try to hide
But in the end there's nowhere
It can get inside
A triple-locked apartment
A secret compartment
Can't conceal the treasure
When love comes to take your heart away
