I break out the heart stuff
and take a swig
gulping down the pain
savoring the joy

I thirst, I thirst
I desire, I require
some of your sweet love

the heart stuff will
get you drunk
with love
and youíll definately hurt

the next day and the day after
I need some heart stuff

to soothe,
to soothe,
the savage beast
and slosh away the sorrows

I break out the heart stuff
for it gives me courage
to face you, tender heart
Iíll play the fool
just for your sweet love

the jester never knew
such silliness that I convey
the imbibing of heart stuff
Iíd drink down every bit
just to glimpse your lovely face

kisses of gentle caress
heart stuff has intoxicated my soul
your beauty fine is so divine
Iíd drink you every drop

love potion # 9 canít touch it

The longing, The longing
I need your love

I thirst, I thirst
for a taste of you dear
Iím parched and dry
water just wonít do it

I need, I want, I desire
some of your heart stuff

glug... glug...glug...
