Affairs of the Heart was a so-so single with Lake singing differently than his usual style.
Better Days being a great rocking song that I heard live before this studio version. Affairs of the Heart is pleasant and has a catchy melody. Altogether this single was supposed to launch the album and get lots of airplay. It nose dived of course like a missile as we all know, but it is worth grabbing this especially for collectors, and especially with the attractive picture sleeve, as one of the last decent singles of the great ELP.
She looked at me across the room
Emerging from a silk cocoon
Alone beneath Venetian chandeliers
Against the moon her body rocks
Her eyes were cunning like a fox
The wings of passion fly on all frontiers
From this fire theres no returning
No escape your heart is burning
Love becomes a lethal weapon
No one is too smart
In affairs of the heart
Now upon the bridge she waits
Dreaming of our tangled fates
Her face was like a ghost with eyes of jade
I fell just like a falling star
A victim of this coup d’etat
I could not see behind this masquerade
Be careful where you start
In affairs of the heart
Sometimes I think I’ll never learn
Were all those promises in vain
Do the wings of fire still remain
All is fair in love and war
The tender draw the shortest straw
Like autumn leaves they vanish in the air
Is this the time we say goodbye
I call her room theres no reply
Tonight we end this fleeting love affair
From this fire theres no returning
No escape your heart is burning
Love becomes a lethal weapon
Sharper than a dart
In affairs of the heart
