I know there's something in the wake of your smile
I get a notion from the look in your eyes yea
You've built a love but that love falls apart
Your little piece of heaven turns too dark

Listen to your heart
When he's calling for you
Listen to your heart
There's nothing else you can do
I don't know where you're going
And I don't know why
But listen to your heart
Before you tell him goodbye

Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile
The precious moments are all lost in the tide yea
They're swept away and nothing is what it seems
The feeling of belonging to your dreams

Listen to your heart
When he's calling for you
Listen to your heart
There's nothing else you can do
I don't know where you're going
And I don't know why
But listen to your heart
Before you tell him goodbye

And there are voices that want to be heard
So much to mention but you can't find the words
The scent of magic the beauty that's been
When love was wilder than the wind

Listen to your heart
When he's calling for you
Listen to your heart
There's nothing else you can do
I don't know where you're going
And I don't know why
But listen to your heart
Before...

Listen to your heart
When he's calling for you
Listen to your heart
There's nothing else you can do
I don't know where you're going
And I don't know why
But listen to your heart
Before...you tell him goodbye

Listen to your heart
Listen to your heart
Take a listen to your heart
Listen to your heart
Take a listen to it
Listen to your heart
Listen to your heart
Oh oh oh oh oh
Listen to your heart
Oh oh oh oh oh
Listen to your heart
Oh oh oh oh oh
Listen to your heart
Oh oh oh oh oh
Listen to your heart
Oh oh oh oh oh
Listen to your heart

Song facts

"Listen to Your Heart" was the third single issued in the United States from Swedish pop duo Roxette's 1988 album Look Sharp! It was written by Per Gessle and Mats M.P. Persson. It reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart on November 4, 1989, their second chart-topper of the year. They rose to #1 the same week the dominant New Kids on the Block rose to #2 with their song "Cover Girl", thus preventing the group from taking the top spot. The song was released in the UK in October 1989 and reached a lowly #62, but was re-issued in August 1990 as a Double A-Side with "Dangerous" after the success of their previous single "It Must Have Been Love", and reached #6.

According to Gessle the song was conceived as :"The Big Bad Ballad. This is us trying to recreate that overblown American FM-rock sound to the point where it almost becomes absurd. We really wanted to see how far we could take it."

Three different versions of the song are available: the original, a slightly modified version that was included on Don't Bore Us, Get to the Chorus, Ballad hits and Roxette hits and the so-called Us remix which is used in the music video and in Kuschelrock vol.4.

Roxette recorded the video for "Listen to Your Heart" in the Borgholm Castle ruin on the Swedish Baltic Sea island of Ă–land.

In 2008, the song had reached four million American radio plays. The D.H.T. dance cover is included in the total of plays. The song has been voted The Best Roxette Song ever by readers of fan-site The Daily Roxette.
