Cadillac smiles and the latest styles
In this world they ain’t no part of me
A hundred dollar bill can cure your ills
In this world but it ain’t no good to me
You see money and clothes are easily burned
People in cars are easily turned around

I’m looking for something that’ll last me all of my life
I’m listening for the sound

I wanna hear a heartbeat in the darkness
Every night of my life
I wanna hear a heartbeat in the darkness
Next to mine

A woman tryin’ to find a diamond mine
Ain’t my kind she ain’t no use to me
A big estate a with a wrought iron gate
A mansion on the hill, ain’t where I wanna be
You see without love a house ain’t a home
A diamond ain’t no more than a stone in the ground

I’d give every material thing I ownin this life
If I could jus’ hear the sound

Of a heartbeat in the darkness
Ev’ry night of my life
I wanna hear a heartbeat in the darkness
Next to mine

I wanna hear a heartbeat in the darkness
Ev’ry night of my life
I wanna hear a heartbeat in the darkness
Next to mine

I wanna hear a heartbeat
I wanna hear a heartbeat
