From the Heart Down

We watch each other even when we sleep
For some small protection, it’s a promise we keep
Love is hard to define, it runs its circles ‘round the mind
But a circle aint a circle if it’s not complete

CHORUS:
Oh, love me from the heart down
If it hurts or if it’s bliss
Love me from the heart down
Reveal me with a kiss
My senses must compete
With a brain that lets me down...down...down

We satisfy each other but the hunger still remains
You sink into my flesh like a knife
When day comes to an end we take off all our clothes
And stand naked face to face with real life

CHORUS:
Oh, love me from the heart down
Get me on the floor
Love me from the heart down
Go under and then come up for more
Analytical patter gives love the run around...around
You can’t hold a theory
Won’t you love me
Love me from the heart down

We misconstrue intentions when there’s distance in between
Longing hurts the teeth like something sweet
When you’re not here with me, you become a memory
This aching feels like some kind of defeat

CHORUS:
Oh, love me from the heart down
Get me on the phone
Love me from the heart down
Lie and say you’re coming home
True confessions need the make-up of a clown...clown
Smiles are deceiving
Won’t you love me
Love me from the heart down
