Harden My Heart / Shadows Of The Night Lyrics


(Amy Spanger, Michael Mais, Mitchell Jarvis & Ensemble)

SHERRIE
Cryin' on the corner, waitin' in the rain
I swear I'll never, ever wait again
You gave me your word. But words for you are lies

Darlin' in my wildest dreams, I never thought I'd go
But it's time to let you know....oh...

I'm gonna harden my heart
I'm gonna swallow my tears
I'm gonna turn...and... Leave you here.....

All of my life I've been waitin' in the rain
I've been waiting for a feeling...that never, ever came
It feels so close, but always disappears....

JUSTICE
Darlin', in your wildest dreams, you never had a clue...
But it's time you got the news......oooo....

SHERRIE
I'm gonna harden my heart

JUSTICE
Harden your Heart

SHERRIE
I'm gonna swallow my tears

JUSTICE
Swallow your tears

SHERRIE
I'm gonna turn...and...leave you here.....

JUSTICE
You said - oh girl, it's a cold world
When you keep it all to yourself
I said you can't hide on the inside
All the pain you've ever felt
Ransom my heart, but baby don't look back
Cause we got nobody else

We're running with the Shadows of the Night
So baby take my hand, you'll be all right
Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
They'll come true in the end

SHERRIE
I'm gonna harden my heart

JUSTICE
Harden your Heart

SHERRIE
I'm gonna swallow my tears

JUSTICE
Swallow your tears

SHERRIE
I'm gonna turn...and...leave you here.....

Never in my wildest dreams, I never thought I'd go
But it's time to let you know....oh...

(Simultaneously)
SHERRIE
I'm gonna harden my heart
I'm gonna swallow my tears
I'm gonna turn...and...leave you here.....

JUSTICE
We're running with the Shadows of the Night
So baby take my hand, you'll be all right
Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
They'll come true in the end
Come on, baby, let’s go inside
