"Straight For The Heart" as written by and David/sykes Coverdale....
I'm coming round to see you,
Kicking down your door
I've got to tell you girl
I really can't take no more
'cause I've been hearing about you
Everybody says you're front page news
Laying it down, all around the town
Giving all the boys the blues

Stand and deliver in the name of love,
I'm coming after you,
I'll tell you want I'm gonna do

I'm going straight for the heart,
Gonna drive you crazy
Going straight for the heart
I'm gonna drive you insane

I never loved a woman
The way that I love you
I can't escape the feeling,
You don't know what you're putting me through

So stand and deliver in the name of love
My heart is in your hand,
So try to understand

Straight for the heart

I'm going straight for the heart,
Gonna drive you crazy
Going straight for the heart
I'm gonna drive you insane

You got the love I dream of
The kind that cost so much,
Just cover me with kisses, baby
Surrender to my touch

Stand and deliver in the name of love
My heart is in your hand,
So try to understand
I'm coming after you,
I'll tell you what I'm gonna do

I'm going straight for the heart
Gonna drive you crazy
Going straight for the heart
I'm gonna drive you insane

Straight for the heart,
Gonna drive you crazy
Going straight for the heart,
I'm gonna drive you insane

Straight for the heart

    General CommentI think its about him going to a prostitute, and then falling for her.

    "'Cos I've been hearing about you
    Everybody says you're front page news
    Laying it down, all around the town"

    explains the prostitute part pretty well, as well as

    "You got the love I dream of
    The kind that cost so much"

    but

    "My heart is in your hand"

    and

    "Just cover me with kisses, baby
    Surrender to my touch"

    point to him loving her.
