"Heartbreak Beat" as written by and Richard/butler Butler....
I'm a heartbreak beat, yea, all night long
And nobody don't dance on the edge of the dark
We've got the radio on
And it feels like love,
But it don't mean a lot
And it feels like love
And it's all that we

[Chorus:]
There's a heartbreak beat, playing all night long
Down on my street
And it feels like love, got the radio on
And it's all that we need
There's a heartbreak beat, and it feels like love
There's a heartbreak beat, and it feels like love

Well, the feet don't stop, the way you talk so tough
And there's a perfect kiss, somewhere out in the dark
But a kiss ain't enough
And the world don't stop, every time that you call
And the world don't stop, every time that you call

[Chorus]

I'm a heartbreak beat, yea, all night long
And nobody don't dance on the edge of the dark
We've got the radio on
And it feels like love,
But it don't mean a lot
And it feels like love
And it's all that we

[Chorus]

There's a heartbreak beat
There's a heartbreak beat

    General CommentThey played this song on the radio today. No clue what its about, but I think its pretty cool.
    And they played Love My Way later... damn I love that station.

    General CommentIt's a love song. It has sort of a desperate feeling, like being sort of lost and love is the only thing that gets you through it. For some reason this song reminds me of those movies where Amish people aren't supposed to listen to music or dance but they do anyway.

    General CommentThis is sung from the perspective of the song
    that is being played; like the music is aware.
    The song knows that its romantic sounding
    and the radio being turned on is all it needs
    to turn people on.

    Song MeaningI absolutely love the saxophone in this song . Its so upbeat, so early 90’s(somehow) . The lyrics point out to a situation where the singer is with a girl on a one night stand & know that whatever they have going is not gonna last . And they are all consumed by the lust or infatuation so strong that it feels like love.
