Some other versions of "Heat"

Let me lay waste with gentle persuasion
Let me lay down
To sweat in the heat
On the back of beyond we laugh at all reason
And in the light of it all
There's no need to retreat

And the heat comes down
And the heat comes down
And hand in hand
We melt in the heat
We melt in the heat
We melt in the heat
We melt in the heat

Save for the asking fortune favors the brave
Let me take strength
From the child in your eyes
And between the lines we dance into the mirror
And a grateful embrace
Lay's in wait for the sun to rise


Please don't take it hard when
I give myself to you
And love will come easy
When you deign to swallow my pride
Before I ever touch your lips
You promise the very earth to me
And tender hearts and broken down
When you take me deep inside
