Tell me that you really want me
I need a b-b-baby tonight
Been thinking about it baby all night
Boy you know you're in for a ride

Tell me that you really want me
I need a b-b-baby tonight
Been thinking about it baby all night
Boy you know you're in for a ride

So don't move real quick
I'll get your mind on your feelings send
Ya reeling head to toe

So give in tonight
Don't try to fight it
What your body doesn't know
I know

Our hearts don't lie (the feelings)
We just can't hide (when it's right)
So don't waste my time (boy believe me)
Our hearts don't lie (oh woh)

My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
When you're not around
I'm tripping I need you baby now

My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
When you're not around
I'm tripping I need you baby now

Tell me that you really want me
I need a b-b-baby tonight
Been thinking about it baby all night
Boy you know you're in for a ride

Tell me that you really want me
I need a b-b-baby tonight
Been thinking about it baby all night
Boy you know you're in for a ride

So don't move real quick
I'll get your mind on your feelings send
Ya reeling head to toe

So give in tonight
Don't try to fight it
What your body doesn't know
I know

Our hearts don't lie (the feelings)
We just can't hide (when it's right)
So don't waste my time (boy believe me)
Our hearts don't lie (oh woah)

Our hearts don't lie (the feelings)
We just can't hide (when it's right)
So don't waste my time (boy believe me)
Our hearts don't lie (oh woah)

My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
When you're not around
I'm tripping I need you baby now

My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
When you're not around
I'm tripping I need you baby now

I'm taking the lies away

Our hearts don't lie (the feelings)
We just can't hide (when it's right)
So don't waste my time (boy believe me)
Our hearts don't lie (oh woah)

Our hearts don't lie (the feelings)
We just can't hide (when it's right)
So don't waste my time (boy believe me)
Our hearts don't lie (oh woah)

My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
When you're not around
I'm tripping I need you baby now

My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
When you're not around
I'm tripping I need you baby now

My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
When you're not around
I'm tripping I need you baby now

My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
My heart beats ticking
When you're not around
I'm tripping I need you baby now

Song facts

"Hearts Don't Lie" is a song by Australian singer-songwriter Gabriella Cilmi from her second studio album, Ten (2010). The song was released as the album's second single on June 7, in the UK. The music video has a '70's-theme, which finds her rocking down to her local discotheque and defining what it really means to "boogie on down".

Gabriella told Digital Spy music reporter Robert Coopsey that "Hearts Don't Lie has a modern disco sound and a BeeGees-inspired chorus, it's very groovy and definitely her favourite song on the album." She also talks about the work with Xenomania on the song, saying that "I really like working with Brian Higgins because I think he brings out the best in me. On 'Hearts Don't Lie', the funny operatic vocal in the chorus started with me mucking around. He knows how to make my silliness good. Hopefully we can work together again - we did have a few tiffs, because when I'm recording I sulk, but I think it all turned out for the best in the end."

The music video was released on April 30. The video was directed by Emil Nava. Regarding the video, Gabriella has said that: "It was really fun! It was the best time I've ever had on a video shoot actually, because I got all my friends and family in it - my cousin from Australia plays the dark angel. It was actually shot at Brixton Academy, which people are always surprised to hear, but once you take down all the posters and clean the place up a bit, it's got a great Art Deco vibe that fits perfectly with the song."
