Hide Your Heart Lyrics - Kiss

Review The Song (6)

Johnny saw her riding on a street car named Desire, his fate was sealed
She could see him coming like a hundred other liars, it was no big deal
Rosa had a lover on the shady side of town, Tito, he was king of the streets
She was his possession like a jewel on his crown, Johnny better run, better run

Better hide your heart, better hold on tight
Say your prayers, 'cause there's trouble tonight
When pride and love battle with desire
Better hide your heart, 'cause you're playing with fire

The ride was over but the story doesn't end, he took her heart
She looked him in the eye and said they couldn't meet again
You could see the trouble start
The word went out that Rosa's messin' with someone, it was on the street
Tito looked for Johnny with a vengeance and a gun
Johnny better run, better run


Johnny's holdin' Rosa on a rooftop in the night, as time stood still
They couldn't hear him coming 'til he had them both in sight
You could feel a chill
A shot ran out like thunder and the blood was on her hands, with nothing won
When someone lies dying, lovers finally understand

not obsessed ... Addicted | Reviewer: AmberLynn | 7/12/12

Rock on KISS!!!

I absolutely love KISS my family and friends all say i'm obsessed but i dissagree...i'm addicted(and i don't want help :p)

I will be dressing up as a KISS fan in this year's halloween parade in selinsgrove. i wanted to dress up as Paul, Gene, Tommy, or Eric; i finally decided to go with Paul's outfit, but then i realized since Paul is a man he can show off his chest, i'm a girl in high school, i dont think my color guard coach would appreciate it very much. Gene's and Tommy's outfits would be to restrictive and i don't think i would be able to maneuver my flag very well in one of them, and Eric's outfit shows just as much as Paul's does.

i would just die to march through and entire parade with 7" platform heals, but i couldn't find them anyway. i did find a pare of 3" that will work just fine. So i've got the boots and i'm gonna do Paul's make-up i'll just have to find shirt now. I found a few on hottopic.com but none that i really liked(i want one with all their faces on it), Hot Topic really doesn't have much of a selecion for kiss.

if anyone has any sugestions i would love to use them. Thanks.
Rock on KISS!!! I Love It Loud!!!

KISS fan forever,

KISS | Reviewer: Delilah | 7/9/12

I seriously love this song and I just got interested in KISS a few months ago. My friends and parents say that I'm obsessed but i think of it as fandom. I get crap at school but you know what, if it works out, I'll be the one working for my heroes and they will be in fast food. I'll be the one in the music business that everyone knows. They might be successful but no one will know who they are. So, my good taste in music will get me far in life. Take that!

I love KISS | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/6/12

I love Kiss. Hide your heart is one of my favorit. The song can also be found on the second disc of KISS ICON2. I actualy just got interested in KISS this year, but my friends tell me I'm a KISS ensyclopedia; they also said they are before my generation, well maybe i was born in the wrong genertion.(my parents are pretty dissapionted in my taist of music). KISS will be performing here in Pennsylvania in Burgettstown on Sept. 2nd and in Scranton on Sept. 18th. Extreamly sadly i wont be able to attend ether of them. To anyone that is going, have loads of fun. I Love It Loud! KISS rocks!


Good Song | Reviewer: Marcos | 1/4/10

I heard this song for the first time in a DVD of Kiss' videos. I loved it since then, but couldn't find the song in Cuba. Once I arrived in USA I had to look for it in every LP of Kiss since I didn't remember the title of the song. And I finally found it in the "Hot in the shade". I love this song!

Johnny Better Run, Better Run!! | Reviewer: KillerKyle1994 | 10/14/09

omg i just got around to hearing this song, i heard it in the background on a KISS documentary and loved it and figured out what song it was, Hot In The Shade is the only KISS record i have yet to hear in its entirety, but love this song and agree KISS should definatley start doing this one again!

regarding the song: | Reviewer: Mark | 9/7/07

Can Kiss please put Hide Your Heart back in your concert song list? It's been my favorite since I heard it by both Kiss and Ace Frehley, back in 1989. And I figured out that Rosa winds up dying!

A similar theme happened in Run, Joey Run. I forgot who did it, but it was on a greatest hits from the 1970s.

So, can someone relay to Kiss to reinclude Hide Your Heart in their set? Thank you!
