Dio - Sacred Heart (Live) Lyrics

The old ones speak of winter
The young ones praise the sun
And time just slips away

Running into nowhere
Turning like a wheel
And a year becomes a day

Whenever you dream
That's when you fly
So here is a dream
For just you and I

We'll find the Sacred Heart
Somewhere bleeding in the night
Look to the light
Got to find the Sacred Heart

Here we see the wizard
Staring through the glass
And he's looking right at you

You can see tomorrow
The answer and the lie
And the things you've got to do

Find the Sacred Heart
Look to the light

Oh, sometimes you never fall
And ah - You're the lucky one
But oh - Sometimes you want it all
You've got to reach for the sun

And find the Sacred Heart
it’s Somewhere bleeding in the night
Oh look out for the light, the light

Find the Sacred Heart
It’s bleeding in the night

You fight to kill the dragon
And bargain with the beast
Then you sail into a sight

You run along the rainbow
But you never leave the ground
Still you don't know why

Whenever you dream
You're holding the key
It opens the door
To let you be free

And find the Sacred Heart
it’s somewhere bleeding in the night
Look tor the light
Got to find the Sacred Heart

Run along the rainbow
Before it turns to black


You’re the last in
You’re the last in
You’re the last in
You’re the last in
You got to reach for the sun

You’ve got to find the Sacred Heart

    Man, what a performance! Holy DIO Forever! \m/


    It would be great if Eagle Rock doubled up this performance with the Super Rock- Live in Japan ‘85’

  3. Ty Morn

  9. Chadley Allen

    the rainbow bridge = N'ter-raciaL relationships. Sacred heart knows red yellow black & white: we R all precious N our Lord God's sight. B warned: It is written: "When a man sins, God takes a portion of his beauty away." The Lord God searches the hearts & minds: 2 give a man according 2 his conduct; according 2 what his deeds D'serve. Jesus Christ telled the woman @ the well 2 go and get her husband. She replied, "I don't have a husband." Jesus sed un2 her, 'U R right N saying "I don't have a husband": 4 U have had Five husbands & the man U R presently with is Not your husband. She replied, "Sir I perceive U R a prophet." Jesus sed 2 the Scribes & Pharisees "Abraham rejoiced 2 see my day." They replied, "U R Not even 50 years old & U have seen Abraham?!" Jesus answered, 'B'hold, b4 Abraham was, I AM!!" The Father the Son & the Holy Ghost R One

  41. Koss

    Hey guys this is some great footage from The Voice THANK YOU!
    If you could just correct the title from "Scared" to "Sacred"
    Cheers! \w/

  42. ShadowⓋ

    Still waiting for the song to end..

    Urdnot Wrex

    Unfortunately it does end, but it gives you enough time to find the sacred heart


    @Urdnot Wrex I did.. back in the mid 80's. I was one of the first people to buy the tape on cassette. I used to play it on an old box radio when I was bored. It went together pretty good with a few hits of weed.

    Urdnot Wrex

    @ShadowⓋ still does, most everything from Rainbow/Sabbath and Dio goes well with it.


    @Urdnot Wrex - Yeah, there's something about marijuana and Dio that I never noticed when listening to music back then. There was only certain records that brought me to that 'plateau'. Another one was Metallica's "Ride the Lightning", but there was something too creepy about it, so I would always gravitate back to Dio, which kinda brought me down a bit. A few tracks from TNT "Knights of the New Thunder" also did something weird to my senses back then. Can't really describe it..

  43. Jagermeister058

    Scared Heart ??? Wtf ?

    Urdnot Wrex

    Our benefactor did not understand the difference

  44. GAPC1969

    saw that tour in Australia 1986 Sydney Ent Centre, Boss and White Widow supports, metal at its finest.

    And, if You have the courage to cross - The Rainbow Bridge...

  51. Luca Corsi

    Please, Eagle Rock, change the title: Sacred Heart! 🙏


    YouTube would take it down, if he did. Copyright thing.

  52. silver

  53. Duayne Clarke

  59. SDS 4Life

    Such great memories of this Concert! One of the Best if not THE BEST Live Metal Show ever filmed! Dio at his Best!🤘

  60. azwris

    @Eagle Rock this is "Sacred Heart" and not "Scared Heart"..

  61. Helium Road

    Wow, amazing to stumble across this video, I was there in the crowd that night at the Spectrum! I try to tell my younger friends about metal shows in the 80s, and how I saw a fire breathing muppet dragon shooting lasers out of its eyes at a Dio show once, and to see this again after so long brings back the memories of the night. Me and three buddies, teenagers all, somehow managed to score a case of beer and got fucked up in the parking lot before going in. We each smuggled a beer or to in our pants into the place. The opener was Accept, I think, and despite being loud as hell they were so boring and we were so buzzed that we started to doze off. When Dio came out all was right with the world once again. I was pissed off that Vivian Campbell was gone, but Goldie got the job done. I remember RJD swinging that cheesy fake sword around, and that fucking dragon I will never forget. And Dio was such a great band, always sounded good, love Vinny's drumming and Jimmy's bass playing. Those were good days.

  62. James Kolak

    "Scared Heart?"

  63. vinicius matos


  64. tira tiros

    what's the term in music for what they do between the 2 'attack'? it's not a solo, not a crescendo, not vibrato

  65. Andrés Mol

    @8:18 How I want to play those drums

  66. K Fox

    It's been a long time since I heard this song which brings back so many memories.. From the first time listening to this on a cassette tape headphones and boombox lol! I saw this tour as well and it was fucking amazing wow... Along seeing Maiden, Priest,Ozzy,Queensryche,Metallica and tons more, these were the best of times without a doubt.

  67. tiago tj

    que falta faz esse baixinho

  68. 74 torino

    and what do you get at concerts these days ..a blank fuckin stage and a big video screen.
    utter Shite ..

    Urdnot Wrex

    Dio had a fucking dragon. That's how you do it


    I just realized that I have been watching this everyday for a long time now lol

    George Kolotouros

    I remember going to this show in San Diego. Miss those days.

    Urdnot Wrex

    Listen to it every day, and you may just have the courage to cross the rainbow bridge.

  70. Larguirucho Jujujajujaju

    Que bien sonaban en vivo en esa epoca.

  71. Damian Velazquez

    3:26 Pedazo de vocalista Ronnie, piel de gallina siempre que lo escucho. Si me dieran la oportunidad de tener la voz de algún cantante, no querría la voz de Elvis Presley, Mercury, Jeff Buckley, Axl Rose, Robert Plant, Jim Morrison, Halford, Dickinson etc, querría la del señor cantante Ronald James Padavona.



  73. Johnny 3D

    Had the privilege of seening this exact tour in Chicago 1986, it was cutting edge live show technology & effects, lazers and lights absolutely mind blowing. Ronnie was a master singer, entertainer and performer, really genuine kind hearted human being. All of those incredible shows were the soundtrack to my life. I'd seen and personally met Ozzy, Kiss, Scorpions, Maiden, Priest, Sabbath, Van Halen and many many more. But Ronnie, Ronnie really was one of the most caring, down to earth Rock stars I've ever had the pleasure and privilege to have met. Live shows were my addiction and main inspiration as a young musician. During the late 70s all of the 80s I was fortunate enough to have the hook up at most all of the Rock venues in the Midwest, that allowed me to go backstage, hotels after parties where few could at that time (Minus groupies and industry people). And then grunge came along and wiped Real Rock productions off the map for a while. Seemed like the labels didn't promote as well as they had been, radio played mostly Nirvana and Pearl jam stuff in heavy rotation. It had became more difficult to fill arenas. At that point started to see alot of smaller venues, theater shows. It was still very cool the crowds we're just as energetic, and the bands Rocked the house just as hard. Maiden and bands like Bon Jovi still kept playing to large crowds, they were fortunate for the massive loyal fan base. But I still miss the early days when heavy metal Ruled the earth!! Long live Rock N Roll, long live Ronnie James Dio!!!

    gristam s

    metal split in the 90s we had either death metal or total boy bands like trixter and firehouse its not grunges fault really. MTV and commercial radio wasnt playing any just good ol rock and roll music for ppl to listen too. it got all random alternative so music style stopped becomeing a way of life therefore smaller fan bases

  74. Marin Varbanov

    Чистото съвършенство!

  75. gristam s

    dio is a level 200 blood elf ret paladin'

  76. Julio Ocasio Albino

    the real man of the silver moutain , the first voice of power metal DIO

    Tom Chagas

    Kill the king, hahahaha

  77. HolyMuscleOfLove

    This is Ronnie James Dio, not that crappy hologram.

  78. Robert Brown

    Twenty-one people have not found the Sacred Heart.

  79. FallingDownTheRabbitHole

    We caught Heaven and Hell in Tampa just a few short months before RJD passed away. I remember wondering why he kept leaving the stage every other song or so and being disappointed in the lack of his usual theatrics. We didn't realize at the time he was so close to death yet still on stage trying his best. I can't imagine going on tour being as sick as he was. RIP, RJD. There will never be another like you. Ever.

    Stefan Sjöberg

    He certainly lived for being on stage and meeting his fans, so it doesnt surprice me that he did it until he could no more. I saw him live first in 1987 here in Stockholm (Dream evil tour) when i was 15 years old and have been a huge fan since the 80´s.

  80. Jo Porchetta

    I like when Ronnie sings "You fight to kill the dragon" then points over at the dragon. You know, in case you missed it or weren't sure what he was singing about.
