Rick Springfield - Affair Of The Heart Lyrics

Heart in my mouth
Pulse in my head
Mercury rising into the red
The smell of your skin can
Light up all the fires in me

Hungry to touch
I'm eager to please
Out of control
And I hand you the keys
Every night I am burning
To make love to you

But don't try to tell me
you think it's all physical
It goes much deeper than that

You ought to know
It's an affair of the heart
It's an affair of the heart
It's an affair of the heart
Have a little blind faith, believe
It's an affair of the heart

When we make love
It's a passionate thing
You shudder and shake
Sink your teeth in my skin
I almost believe you were made
To be played by my hands

And you got the power
It amazes me still
How you play my emotions
With consummate skill
I don't have to look any further
Than into your eyes

So don't try to tell me
You think it's just physical
It goes way deeper than that

You better know
It's an affair of the heart
It's an affair of the heart
It's an affair of the heart
Have a little blind faith, believe
It's an affair of the heart

I'm the controller
And I want to touch you and seize you
And make you mine, hey, hey

Don't try to tell me
You think it's all physical
It goes much deeper than that
You ought to know
It's an affair of the heart
It's affair of the heart

You better know
It's an affair of the heart
It's an affair of the heart

You better know
it's an affair of the heart
Have a little blind faith, believe
It's an affair of the heart

Rick Springfield Affair Of The Heart Comments
  1. Faith Hope & Love

    Synthesizers, vocals, lyrics. or Drums, guitars, Piano's, cowbell and metal. Those were both the choices. I loved them equally! The lyrics always meant something. Somewhere metal took a scream avoid of words. Shame. Scream equates to idiots. Guess they had nothin to say.

  2. Constance Barkins

    When videos had nothing to do with the song = 80s lol

  3. Steve Ferguson

    80s had. Sexy. Under. Wear

    In the Eighties every man either wanted to look like Don Johnson or Rick Springfield. Both the epitome of cool.

  35. Marshall Lancaster

    What a great time to be a newly licensed driver. The radio couldn’t play enough Rick—3-4 different albums, all great.

  36. yester day

    This is such a well written song....so.....deep. He is so talented.

  37. RaginCajunAsian

    Still rocking this in 2019 (and beyond)...

  38. GVike

    And I just realized that is Tim Pierce on lead guitar. I have seen some videos in his YT channel...

  39. ducksliver

    Happy 70th birthday, Rick!!!

    Happy Birthday Rick Springfield! He's 70 today.

  41. linda donofrio

    One of the most beautiful men ever

  42. Jason Nadle

    I've begun to think this may have been the first draft of the theme to the show "Hunter" which began the next year. Mike Post wrote the theme but it had a Rick Springfield vibe for 1984.

  43. Stack Britz

    He's awesome!!! But I have no desire to ever see him in concert...saw him 3 times while he was on top of it...As he's gotten older...not much of a fan....I like MY Rick Springfield....years and years ago....

  44. non yourbuisness

    I had forgotten all about this song. I am soo excited i was able to see him live in my town last month in the middle of a heat wave Rick was awesome

  45. Susan Puglife

    Loved this song. I think it was my favorite song on that album

  46. Connie Womack

    I can listen to Rick Springfield 24/7 and never get tired of listening to him

  47. Luka B.

    Back in the day when singers didn’t sound like Stephen Hawking!

    Great stuff

  48. Jerrene W.

    I had such a crush on him in the early 80s! I loved singing and dancing while thinking about him and staring at his record. We played solid gold every weekend that was before MTV videos. Just watching this video again makes me just wanna kiss on him!💘 LoL I don't really remember this video but I still love him to bits!! Love you Rick and big 😘❤💋kisses!

    Jerrene W.

    His writing is so creative and really ahead of his time. Lyrics are way deeper than I realized when I waa younger and I love that about him, He goes deep.💟

  49. Joe O'Malley

    Sorry, but for my money, this is way better than Jessie's Girl.

  50. rex racer

    Tim Pierce on lead guitar ...top notch player that was very sought after in the studio and appears on many songs..
    The guitar solos on Bon Jovi’s “Runaway” and Crowded House “Don’t dream it’s over “ to name a few..

  51. Jenny Taylor

    Rick could sure rock a mullet!

  52. sharikoe

  60. Super Kyle

    So many 80's vids would have a quick, non-sequitur scene that seemed out of context with the rest of the vid, like there was no meaning for it at all and it made no sense. What's with the lady ironing with all the cobwebs around at 2:54

  61. The_Mynxie_One

    I love his music. I use to watch him on General Hospital (also when he made a comeback. Don't watch soaps anymore though). He is just to fucking hot!

  62. Tricia Star

    Saw him in Louisiana in March. Fun show. I was like a giddy teenager. We held hands...LOL.

  63. Alliem71

    Yummmmmm....this song was hot just like him! 🔥 🔥 🤤🤤

  64. John Mcconnell

    Best 80s music back in the day wow miss the 80s true true classeic song and video 😉😀😀😀

    James Vradenburg

  65. UltraPrime

    Don't let the democrats steal your soul. Stay Strong !!!!!!!!!!! Love uPrime

  66. Bob Cummings

    This is still one of Rick's COOLEST songs and videos of all time!

  67. Conscious Gentile

    Billy Squier-- eat your heart out 🔥🔥🔥

  68. J Bro

    The most beautiful man to have ever walked this Earth

  69. Andy Jacobs

    I always wanted to know what was being said from 3:19 to 3:29. Never figured it out and have never found the answer. Also the way he sang the word, "baby" at 4:22 was my favorite part of the song.

  70. Amy Gale

    Rick Springfield was the first person I saw in concert. The 80s had some of the best music.

  71. richierich396

    '83 was a gr8 year in music! Got my license that same year and fortunate 2 cruise the boulevards in my old man's '83 K-5 Blazer blasting new Jensen stereo! Good times!

  72. RED PILLS42

    Omg! I remember this! I'm watching him now on Supernatural season 12 episode 7! Lmao!!

  73. Scott Kenny

    Rick is underated, he had some Jams, plus he was huge on general hospital, underated heartthrob of 80's, Rick the man

    Vickie B.

    I had the biggest crush on him & loved him General Hospital too. Had to relive some childhood memories because my 50th birthday is Saturday! (1969 baby) Glad I was a teen in the 80's. ☺

  74. Zachariah-Bin Yisrayl

    The man was a GIRL MAGNET. All he had to do was WALK IN THE ROOM....and he's got ALL to the girls. Without saying a word. Now THAT is magnetism. 😎

    yester day

    Zachariah-Bin Yisrayl
    THAT is a happy grin...twinkle in the eye and what verbally comes across as a beautiful forthright soul!

  75. E . Rama Enqvist

  76. Nacho Coria

  77. Patricia B

    Got to meet him a few years back in Massachusetts. Had a mug made with a pic of his dog, Gomer. He loved it. Nice guy!

  78. Zachariah-Bin Yisrayl

    Dude was a straight up CHICK MAGNET....he just had that magnetizm. Walk into the room...don't say a word...and PANTIES DROP. 😈

  79. cynthiadean19

  82. laurie alexander

    In the 80's they were all really musicians!!!

  86. A M

    He was such a hottie here- I crushed hard on him as a teen

  87. Michael Webb

    The instrumental at the beginning, for me, evokes an image of being in the woods at night and seeing through the trees, a red light pulsing at the top of a powerline tower.

  88. Saira Smith

    pretty good song and i cant stop listening to it tbh

  89. Lisa Trosclair

    Love me some Rick S.

  90. Andreas Bell

    Hey! Does anyone remember a vampire TV movie that he starred in sometime in the late 80s? I think he played a vampire cop or something. Anyone?

    Sandra Sempek

    Nick Night

    Sandra Sempek

    80s music was much better than music today if you can call some of it music

  97. Julie Mellema


  98. rob yohn

    I remember him on General Hospital as Dr. Noah Drake. I loved that show back then. Soaps aren't as exciting as they were back in the 80s.
