Tom Cochrane – Love Under Fire lyrics

She got the heart
She got the heart of the working man
It's not hard to understand
She got the love
She got the love of the working man
She wears it high upon her sleeve
Deep in the heart of this working land
They say the streets are paved with gold
And ever man had his mission
Then after all the stories are told
The only thing I've got to hold
Our love is under fire tonight
But you know it's not to be forgotten

She's seen this place before
Where do you stop it?
Stop the leaking, this is ship to shore
Down to zero and then back for more
Do you miss me?
She doesn't even know your name
We can rise from this
Likes ashes to diamonds
Like a soldier from a kiss
Milk and honey, or the grapes of wrath

You don't walk a thousand miles
Just to get yourself turned back
Don't you fade on me now
Can't you see
We can take it is degrees
Nor rhyme nor reason or fame nor gold
Could make you change your mind, your heart, your soul

Our love is under fire tonight
You know it's not to be forgotten
Our love is on the wire tonight
But It'll never be broken (repeat)

You might look the other way
And then turn again someday when you'll remember
It'll never, never be broken

Our love is under fire tonight
You know it's not to be forgotten
