“Heart On Fire” Lyric Video

Preorders for Heart (set for release Friday, April 16th) and Soul (set for release Friday, April 23rd) are available here. The middle album, &, is set for release on Tuesday, April 20th.

“‘Heart On Fire’ is the first song on the Heart album, and normally if we had four songs about heart, with the way we used to do this we would cut three of them out and we’d do one,” explains Church. “It started to be cool that this time we could lean into that sameness and the themes where you can put the songs together and know we wrote these within this much time of each other.”

The new release offers a further glimpse at the results of Church’s marathon writing and recording session in the mountains of North Carolina early last year, which produced a three-part, 24-song collection produced by Church’s longtime collaborator Jay Joyce, featuring his touring band as well as backing vocals by Joanna Cotten.

“Heart On Fire” Lyrics

Roosevelt Road was too rough for my old truck
Yeah, she’d shake and she’d shimmy like Elvis singin’ “All Shook Up”
But you can’t blame a boy for going, drive it like you stole it fast
With your window down, brown hair, blowin’ look at me like that

A turned up radio but the static was heavy
Couldn’t make out any words but “take me to the levee”
That look on your face was full of wild desire
Soakin’ my soul in gas and settin’ my heart on fire
Heart on fire, heart on fire, heart on fire

I don’t have a single second thought that doesn’t have you in it
To feel those flames again, I’d go back in a New York minute
I miss the freedom of you dancing on the bow of your daddy’s old boat
When my spirit starts sinkin’ that picture always makes it float baby

We weren’t old enough to drink but we damn sure did it
Hat turned backward singin’ “Paradise City”
That look on your face was full of young desire
Soakin’ my soul in gas and settin’ my heart on fire
Heart on fire

Turned up the radio but the static was heavy
Couldn’t make out any words but “take me to the levee”
That look on your face was full of wild desire
Heart on fire, heart on fire, heart on fire, heart on fire
Heart on fire, heart on fire, heart on fire, heart on, heart on fire

Roosevelt road was too much for my old truck
Yeah, she’d shake and she’d shimmy like Elvis singin’ “All Shook Up”
Heart on fire, heart on fire, heart on fire
