THE HUMAN LEAGUE - LYRICS

 

HEART LIKE A WHEEL

(Callis/Reynolds)

Calling up the promised land

Johnny Seven's coming over the sea

He's taking your time

When you want to be free.
Holding out a helping hand

Are you ready for a real career?

Will you be so cool

When it's happening here?
It don't say nothing that I haven't heard

If what I hear is true

You won't keep the law with a broken word

So what are you going to do?
Heart like a wheel

Turning away from anything that's real.
Heart like a wheel

Changing in time

Beating colder steel
Pass the message around the world

The medium is in retreat

The power is here

And packing some heat.
Sell your soul to a holy war

Set the captive free

We make no promises anymore

But it isn't fooling me
Heart like a wheel

Turning away from anything that's real
Heart like a wheel

Changing in time beating colder steel
You can't keep the wheels turning anymore

With anger, blood and fear

Or make any friends with an M16

When you blast your way through here.
Heart like a wheel

Turning away from anything that's real.
Heart like a wheel

Changing in time

Beating colder steel
Heart like a wheel

Turning away from anything that's real.
Heart like a wheel

Changing in time

Beating colder steel
Heart like a wheel

Turning away from anything that's real.
Heart like a wheel

Changing in time

Beating colder steel
