Lyrics

Ain't no room 'round here for a coward
Never wanna let another single thing but love
Rule this heart

And since the moment that we met
There's been a river racing
Appetite I can't whet
A tiger's tail I'm chasing
Smile that I can't forget
Fingers interlacing
You cut a mighty silhouette
A body for embracing

Money and fame
Vanity and power
Never wanna let another single thing but love
Rule this heart
There's so much sadness
And dream gone sour
Never wanna let another single thing but love
Rule this heart

Now there's somethin' stirrin' deep inside
It's like a soul connection
Nothin' left I wanna hide
Show every imperfection
Ain't no use feigning pride
I'm raining down affection
Tell you when our eyes collide
It's like a resurrection

Money and fame
Vanity and power
Never wanna let another single thing but love
Rule this heart

Now I've got mystic fingertips
To pull your guard down, gorgeous hipster
Up 'til now they've been eclipsed
But soon you're gonna part your lips
And sigh a little sigh
The language universal
Sizing you up with my eye
For the undress rehearsal

Come on, girl, let me pull that guard down
Never wanna let another single thing but love
Rule this heart
It's hard enough livin' in this hard town
Never wanna let another single thing but love...

Ain't no room 'round here for a coward
Never wanna let another single thing but love
Rule this heart
So come on down from your fortress tower
Never wanna let another single thing but love
Rule this heart
The clock's windin' down to the bedroom hour
Never wanna let another single thing but love
Rule this heart
