Heart of Glass by Blondie

Blondie

Blondie is a rock band founded by vocalist Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein and were pioneers of the American punk scene and the following new wave scene of the mid-1970s in New York. Their first two albums reflected strong elements of the genres, and were highly successful in the UK and Australia, however in the US they were an underground band until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978. Blondie disbanded in 1982 with Harry pursuing a solo career as well as taking time off to care for her partner, Stein, when he was diagnosed with pemphigus. The band reformed in 1997 achieving a UK number one with the single Maria in 1999, exactly twenty years after their first UK number one Heart of Glass

Lyrics by Chris Stein and Deborah Harry

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

In between
What I find is pleasing and I’m feeling fine
Love is so confusing, there’s no peace of mind
If I fear I’m losing you it’s just no good
You teasing like you do

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Lost inside
Adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I’m the one you’re using, please don’t push me aside
We coulda made it cruising, yeah

La, da, da, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, da, da, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, da, da, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Yeah, riding high on love’s true bluish light

Ooh, oh, ooh, oh
Ooh, oh, ooh, oh

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out to be a pain in the ass
Seemed like the real thing only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Ooh, oh, ooh, oh
Ooh, oh, ooh, oh
