Radio 59, side A, track 10: “Heart Of Stone” by Cher

Cher - Heart Of StoneOh, Cher, it’s Friday and I’m feeling lazy so I don’t know that I’m going to have too much to say about this song.  Except, of course, OH MY GOD YOU’RE AN AMAZING SINGER!!!!!

That took most of my energy, Cher.

But seriously, Cher, I forgot how much I adored this song.  Which I do.  And it’s another of your songs that is slowly building the case that I should have loved you from the start.  I mean, I’ve always appreciated  you, Cher, but now, now I GET it.  This blog has taught me to appreciate many of the singers I took for granted as a child and young adult, and you’re at the top of the list, right next to George Michael.  I love you so much, Cher, and no, I would never wish my heart was made of stone if it meant I’d never get to love this song again.

“Heart Of Stone”

Beneath the white fire of the mooooon

Love’s wings’re broken all too soooon

We never learn

Hurt together, huuuuurt alooone
Doncha sometimes
Wish yo heart was a heart’a stone

We turn the wheel and break the chain

Put steel ta steel and laugh at pain

Where dreamers and castles’a made’a sand

The road to Eden’s oooovergroooown
Doncha sometimes
Wish yo heart was made’a stone

Look at the headlines

Big crowd at the crazy house

Long queue for the Joker’s shoes

Ten rounds in the ring with love

Do you lose
And win
Or win and lose
Sweet rain like mercy in the night
(Lay me down)
(Wash away the sorrow)

Caress my soul’n set it right
(Lay me down)
(Show me yo tomorrow)
Summer tears
Winter and the mooooment’s floooown
Doncha sometimes
Wish yo heart was made’a stone

Mercy, mercy
Wish yo heart was a heart’a stoooone

Get the picture

No room for the innocent

Peak season in Lonely Town

Knocked out of the ring by love

Are you down
And up
Or up and down
I asked the river for a siiiign
(In my dreams)
(We go on together)

How long is love supposed ta shiiiine
(In my dream)
(Diamonds are forever)
Choo and I

We hurt together
Huuuuurt alooooone
Doncha sometimes
Wish yo heart was a heart’a stooooone

Mercy, mercy
Wish yo heart was a heart’a stoooone
(In a heart of stone)
(You’ll be well protected)
Doncha sometimes
Wish yo heart was made’a stone

  1. I like the way she sings low, with vibrato … too many singers hit high notes as if in some athletic competition

I totally have an opinion on this!
