Heart - Never



"Never" was written by Holly Knight, Gene Black, and the Wilson sisters of Heart, Ann and Nancy. Knight and Black were in a band called Device and also wrote Rod Stewart's hit "Love Touch." This song is an empowerment song with a very vague storyline but a seriously catchy chorus.

Knight explains:


"It feels like that was my theme, and I think it all came out of the fact that I was not going to take

s--t from anybody after what I'd been through in the early part of my life.

I write a lot of songs where there is a chorus and then I have the refrain, and for me, the refrain is sometimes the hook of the song and the part that people really latch on to. That's the part that everybody rallies to."


Never - Lyrics


Hey, baby, I'm talking to you

Stop yourself and listen

Some things you can never choose

Even if you try, yeah


You're banging your head again

'Cause somebody won't let you in

One chance, one love

Your chance to let me know


We can't go on

Just running away

If we stay any longer

We will surely never get away


Anything you want

We can make it happen

Stand up and turn around

Never let them shoot us down


Never, never

Never, never run away


Hey, baby, you know it's true

Why you bother lying

When you know that

That you want it too

Don't you dare deny me


Now walk those legs right over here

Give me what I'm dying for

One chance, one love

Hold me down, never let me go


We can't go on

Just running away

If we wait any longer

We will surely never get away


Anything you want

We can make it happen

Stand up and turn around

Never let them shoot us down


Never, never

Never, never run away

Never, never

Never, never run away


Hey, baby I'm talking to you

Stop yourself and listen

Some things you can never never choose

Even if you try, yeah


You're banging your head again

'Cause somebody won't let you in

One chance, one love

Your chance to let me know


We can't go on

Just running away

If we stay any longer

We will surely never get away


Oh, oh, never

Oh, oh, never


We can't go on, never

We can't go on, never


Oh, oh, never

Oh, oh, never, never, never


We can't go on, never

We can't go on, never


Oh, oh, never

Oh, oh, never, never, never
