Thompson Twins – Follow Your Heart lyrics

You say they've been making plans
Oh your life's not your own-it's out of your hands
You can betray your dreams
Or trade them in for a life that's easy to lead
(or you could) Gather pearls on a coral reef
Walk the wall of China
Fall in love with me
You better Follow Your Heart
Don't let no-one else do your livin' for you
Follow Your Heart
And to yourself and no-one else always be true
How will you be the one
If you dance to the beat of another man's drum
How will you feel the sun
Knowin' all the time it could've been love
(or you could) Sail down the Nile on a royal barge
Be a mother or a lover
You could go far
Do you really wanna live on dreams
Forever thinkin' what could've been
Do you really wanna play the game
Forever lookin' for someone to blame
And do you really wanna stand in line
Keepin' the faith 'til your old 'n tired
Do you really wanna live on lies
Or watch as your life just passes you by
(Or you could) Gather pearls on a coral reef
Walk the Wall of China
Fall in love with me
