Open all of your windows, can't you hear the boys are calling
Step outside for the night, y'know it's summertime, they'll all be there
And they're playing memories on the radio
Got your back pretty one, I know that you've got mine

Oh my love, there is trouble in the heartland
You and me, as we walk the square of possibility
Caught up in a love that could not be

I remember she used to refer to you as sweet, sweet prince
Though she's always known that you're nothing but a working man's son
Your ambition was always to high for one of us
Surely you would go on, oh baby, to do what we can't dream

Oh my love, there is trouble in the heartland
One last dance, save your worries for another rainy day
You wouldn't want it any other way
But darling it's time to say our goodbyes to summer romance
By the fall, all will be gone and then we'll walk our separate ways
We'll let this night be our last big mistake

From the heroes of yesteryear
The only one still left standing
Tuned in to life's radio
A blue song from long ago

Oh my love, there is trouble in the heartland
You and me, as we walk the square of possibility
Caught up in a love that could not be
But darling can't you see?
We're still soldiers of the heartland,
Even now I still see you like I did when I could dream
Of a place where we'd be known as king & queen
