Lyrics

Na na na na na nah
Na na na na na nah
[in background throughout]

Your skin was arctic white
Your eyes were midnight blue
You could not speak to me
The night I came to you

I was the infidel
Searching for paradise
I felt the light descend
In sheets of mystic eyes

I heard your lonely voice
I felt your lasting glance
I had to make a choice
As I got no second chance

To feel your nakedness
To be with you alone
I had to steel myself
Beyond the comfort zone

At the naked heart of you
There is a savage wilderness
Yeh it’s the part of you
That I can not caress
It’s the naked heart of you

And as the sun went down
At last we reached the spot
Where ancient armies met
All the pain that time forgot

It turned our dreams into
A thing of fire and steam
It turned the countryside
Into a death machine

Searching for pleasure now
To make a life renewed
To see the past destroyed
The antidote was you

And your sex was heaven sent
That’s what the prophets said
I could not match the truth
With what was in my head

And the naked heart of you
There is a savage wilderness
Yeh it’s the part of you
That I can not caress

Yeh the naked heart of you
That fills the emptiness
With the savage truth in you
It had no fixed address

It’s the naked heart of you

Yeh it’s the naked heart of you

And I once knew a girl
Who’s love I could not hold
You know I can’t forget
The story that she told

Of millions passing by
In search of living space
She was the last of them
To leave without a trace

It’s the naked heart of you
There is a savage wilderness
It’s the part of you
That I can not caress

It’s the naked heart of you
Fills the emptiness
The savage truth in you
That has no fixed address

It’s the naked heart of you

It’s the naked heart of you

It’s the naked heart of you
