Perhaps I have gone for a rather obvious choice this week’s Song Lyric Sunday. Maria McKee’s track “Show Me Heaven” is unarguably famous because of that Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman movie – the one we grew up with “Days Of Thunder”.
It had considerable chart success but I was fascinated to read that Maria McKee only agreed to record this song if she could re-write the lyric. In fact I read that it was originally to be called “Secret Fire”. Well, she did a great job. This was such a memorable iconic love song from the 1990s.

There you go Flashing fever from your eyes Hey baby, come over here and shut them tight I'm not denying We're flying above it all Hold my hand, don't let me fall You've such amazing grace I've never felt this way Oh, show me heaven Cover me Leave me breathless Oh, show me heaven please Here I go I'm shaking just like the breeze Hey baby, I need your hand to steady me I'm not denying I'm frightened as much as you Though I'm barely touching you I've shivers down my spine And it feels divine Oh, show me heaven Cover me Leave me breathless Oh, show me heaven please If you know what it's like To dream a dream Baby, hold me tight and let this be, oh Heaven Cover me Leave me breathless Oh, show me heaven please Leave me breathless Leave me breathless Cover me Oh, yeah Leave me breathless...
