Emerson, Lake & PalmerAffairs Of The Heart

She looked at me across the room Emerging from a silk cocoon Along beneath venetian chandeliers Against the moon her body rocks Her eyes were cunning like a fox The wings of passion fly on all frontiers From this fire there's no returning No escape your heart is burning Love becomes a lethal weapon No one is to smart In affairs of the heart Now upon the bridge she waits Dreaming of our tangled fates Her face was like a ghost with eyes of jade I fell just like a falling star A victim of this coup d'etat I could not see behind this masquerade From this fire there's no returning No escape your heart is burning Love becomes a leathal weapon Be careful where you start In affairs of the heart Sometimes I think I'll never learn Were all those promises in vain Do the wings of fire still remain All is fair in love and war The tender draw the shortest straw Like autumn leaves they vanish in the air Is this the time we say good-bye I call her room there's no reply Tonight we end this fleeting love affair From this fire there's no returning No escape your heart is burning Love becomes a leathal weapon Sharper than a dart In affairs of the heart
