Ace Frehley - Hide Your Heart Lyrics

Johnny caught a ride
On the streetcar named Desire
His fate was sealed
She could've seen him coming
Like a hundred other guys
It was no big deal

Rosa had a lover
On the shady side of town
He was king of the streets
She was his possession
Like a jewel on his crown
Johnny, better run, better run

Better hide your heart
Better hold on tight
Say your prayers
'Cuz there's trouble tonight
When pride and love
Battle with desire
Better hide your heart
'Cuz you're playin' with fire

Aha, ha, ha, ha
Ahey, hey, hey
Ado, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Aha, ha, ha, ha
Ahey, hey, hey
Ado, do, do, do, do, do, do, do

The ride was over
But the story doesn't end
He took her heart
She looked him in the eye
Said they couldn't meet again
You could see the trouble start

The word went out that
Rosa's messin' with someone
It was on the street
Tito looked for Johnny
With a vengeance and a gun
Johnny, better run, better run

Better hide your heart
Better hold on tight
They say your prayers
'Cuz there's trouble tonight
When pride and love
Battle with desire
Better hide your heart
'Cuz you're playin' with fire

Aha, ha, ha, ha
Ahey, hey, hey
Ado, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Aha, ha, ha, ha
Ahey, hey, hey
Ado, do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Johnny's holding Rosa
On a rooftop in the night
As time stood still
They couldn't hear him comin'
'Til he had them both in sight
You could feel a chill

A shot rang out like thunder
And the blood was on her hands
With nothin' won
When someone has to die
You know they finally understand

Better hide your heart
Better hold on tight
Say your prayers
'Cuz there's trouble tonight
When pride and love
Battle with desire
Better hide your heart
'Cuz you're playin' with fire

Aha, ha, ha, ha
Ahey, hey, hey
Ado, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
When pride and love
Battle with desire
Better hide your heart
'Cuz you're playin' with fire

Aha, ha, ha, ha
Ahey, hey, hey
Ado, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Aha, ha, ha, ha
Ahey, hey, hey
Ado, do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Aha, ha, ha, ha
Aha, ha, ha, ha
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Aha, ha, ha, ha
Aha, ha, ha, ha
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
