Rick Springfield - State Of The Heart Lyrics

It's just the state of the heart
I'm waiting here for you
In the state I'm in

I know your name, I told you mine
We've stopped and passed the time of day
You work in town, I work at night
That gives us six until seven to work this out

If I seem a little strange
It's just the state of the heart
I'm waiting here for you
In the state I'm in

You are the moon, I am the sea
You pull me in and gaze on down at me
I was alone, I thought I was immune
It's good to know
The door can still be open wide

If I seem a little strange
It's just the state of the heart
I'm waiting here for you
In the state I'm in

It's just the state of the heart
I wait in the dark
In the state I'm in

We get closer and closer
To falling out or falling in
I go over and over
But I can't change the state
This heart is in

If I seem a little strange
It's just the state of the heart
I'm waiting here for you
In the state I'm in
It's just the state of the heart
You know I wait in the dark
In the state I'm in

It's the state of the heart
The state of the heart
The state of the heart
The state of the heart

  83. Julio Cortés

    Del LP TAO, para mí uno de los mejores álbumes de Rick! Fue el primero que compré de él.

  84. ernesto sanchez hernandez

    No me canso de escucharla una y otra vez por favor si alguien tiene una maquina del tiempo necesito volver a los 80s

  85. Angela Braunsdorf

    Just a beautiful man with a beautiful voice.

  86. Luciano Jannuzzi Carneiro

    I vividly remember when that song came out... On a rare occasion, it was lauched here in Brazil virtually at the same time as in the rest of the world.

    One point always made me curious, though: in the original LP, there's an "intro" to this song, like a synth/sampler experiment, but when I first heard it on FM radio, there was a voice, like a narrator, clearly down-sampled to sound like an 80's "monster" or something (the creatures from the movie "Labyrinth" came to mind...).

    Question is... Does anyone remember that at all or is it just me ? ;-)

  87. Karen Olson

    Omg, I'm so happy we got to meet you on the 80's cruise Rick, it made my week, your still sexy as ever😙🖤

  88. Tony Wilson

    Back then we knew how to treat our girlfriend, and make sure she knows she is only one! Such a lost now.

  89. Sam C

    Almost everyone that commented is a woman. Yep he gets more ass than a toilet seat.

  90. James West

    One of my all time favorite songs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just incredible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I play this song over and over and over endlessly

  91. Deanna Duncan

    I lost my husband in 2016...We were soulmates since the age of 17. This was our favorite song! Special thanks to Rick Springfield for lending his beautiful voice to this awesome piece of music that had a hand in my one time happiness. Best music ever💕

  92. Jorge Luna Cantante

    I like more Matricula 2
