Heart of Stone
Bucks Fizz Lyrics


Beneath the white fire of the moon
Love's wings are broken all too soon
We never learn
Hurt together, hurt alone
Don't you sometimes

Wish your heart was a heart of stone
We turn the wheel, and break the chain
Put steel to steel, and laugh at pain
We're dreamers in castle's made of sand
The road to Eden's overgrown

Don't you sometimes
Wish your heart was a heart of stone
Look at the headlines
Big crowd at the crazy house
Long cue for the joker's shoe
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 and set it right
(Lay me down, show me your tomorrow)
Summer tears, winter and the moment's flown

Don't you sometimes
Wish your heart was a heart of stone
Mercy, mercy, wish your heart was a heart of stone

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 ask the river for a sign
(In a dream, we go on together)
How long is love supposed to shine
(In a dream, diamonds are forever
But you and I, hurt together, hurt alone

Don't you sometimes
Wish you heart was a heart of stone
Mercy, mercy, wish your heart was a heart of stone
(With a heart of stone, you'll be well protected)

Don't you sometimes
Wish your heart was made of stone
(With a heart of stone, you'll be well connected)

You know, Bucks Fizz is often used a punchline for jokes about 80's pop but this song (along with a large number of their singles) show that they were actually an outstanding band with great writers and producers behind them. They deserve far more credit than they get.

80s Music

Correct. They were a talented band and Andy Hill is a genius.

80s Music

@Richard Edwards I agree. The rest of their singles in the eighties were very good, including this.

Gillian Edgeworth

One of my top two favourite BF songs. New Beginning being the other one. Love them both

Unfortunately 'Making Your Mind Up', in my view one of their weakest songs, is also their best known.

@edna butler You must be American.

One of the most criminally under-rated songs ever.

Gary Cronshaw

How can this song have had so few views and likes?  It is absolutely brilliant.

Hazel Clacy

One of my favourites
