Hearts of fire creates love desire
Take you high and higher to the world you belong
Hearts of fire creates love desire
High and higher to your place on the throne
We’ve come together on this special day
To sing our message loud and clear
Looking back we’ve touched on sorrowful days
Future pass, they disappear
You will find peace of mind
If you look way down in your heart and soul
Don’t hesitate ‘cause the world seems cold
Stay young at heart ‘cause you’re never (never, never, ..) old at heart
That’s the way of the world
Plant your flower and you grow a pearl
A child is born with a heart of gold
The way of the world makes his heart grow cold

    General CommentWeird that noone commented on this jewel. almost anything that EW&F Touched was gold, and this one is no expection. heart-touching, moving, gets into your soul in an intravenous manner.

    the sound of this song is amazing, soothing, it sucks you in.

    the song is obviously dealing with love ("hearts of fire creates love desire"), but it has a more "dark" theme - it's a sad song in my opinion, and pretty self explanatory. a child is born with a heart of gold, but the way of the world makes his heart grow cold.

    EW&F are basically saying the world sucks. but thank the lord that they exist to give us some meaning to life with their gorgeous tunes.
