Two worlds collide
Rival nations
It's a primitive clash
Venting years of frustrations
Bravely we hope
Against all hope
There is so much at stake
Seems our freedom's up
Against the ropes
Does the crowd understand?
Is it East versus West
Or man against man
Can any nation stand alone
In the burning Heart
Just about to burst
There's a quest for answers
An unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night
Rising like a spire
In the burning heart
The unmistakable fire
In the burning heart

In the warriors code
There's no surrender
Though his body says stop
His spirit cries - never
Deep in our soul
A quiet ember
Knows it's you against you
It's the paradox
That drives us on
It's a battle of wills
In the heat of attack
It's the passion that kills
The victory is yours alone
CHORUS (sing chorus 3 times)
In the burning heart

    The lyric matches with the video called:

    "Survivor - Burning heart (Rocky IV)"

    The first vid, has an error, so it sounds like:

    It's a battle of wills
    (In the heat of attack)

    The lyrics speak about rocky and along with him his never ending will to fight drago. It speaks about the fire that he has in his heart to take it right till the end, not worrying about the consequence of his fight with drago. Anyone of us can associate with this as we decide to achieve our goal,we should keep the same fire burning and not give up mid-way which is conveyed in the following lines.
