Heat Wave Lyrics


Whenever I'm with him - something inside
Starts to burning - and I'm filled with desire
Could it be - the devil in me
Or is this the way love's supposed to be

It's like a heat wave - Burning in my heart
Can't keep from crying - It's tearing me apart

Whenever he calls my name - Soft, low, sweet and plain
I feel - yeah, yeah - Well I feel that burning flame
Has high blood pressure got a hold on me
Or is this the way love's supposed to be

It's like a heat wave - Burning in my heart
Can't keep from crying - It's tearing me apart

Sometimes I stare into space - Tears all over my face
I can't explain it - don't understand it - I hadn't ever felt like this before
Now that funny feeling has me amazed I don't know what to do
My head's in a haze

It's like a heat wave - Burning in my heart
Can't keep from crying - It's tearing me apart

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah - Yeah, yeah oh, oh (heat wave)
Yeah, yeah, ----yeah, yeah - oh (heat wave)
Don't pass up this chance - This time it's true romance Heat wave - Heat wave - Heat wave
Oooh heat wave
