Subject: Need Help with Song

Written By: Snoopygirl on 04/25/13 at 9:25 pm

Hi all!!  Hoping that someone can help me with a song that I first heard back in the mid-80s. I had forgotten this song but I found an old cassette ( yes, I have a few floating around yet! ) and part of it was on there.  This was one of those occasions where I only heard it once and the dj never said who it was.
Ok, here goes: Heard it in 1985, it was a hard rock tune. I think the title was either " Listen to your heart " or " Listen to her heart ".  No, it is not Roxette. It also had some keyboards in it.
Lyrics:

Just to confuse you
You better listen to your heart
No, don't be afraid
Just do what you know is right

Better listen to your heart
You keep messing up
Cause in the name of romance
You keep checking out lovers
And the feeling that always
gets lost somewhere under the covers
And you wind up feeling cheap
What have you done with the night

Sorry, those lyrics don't conjure up any memories for me. Hope someone else can help you.

Even knowing the answer, googling draws a blank, so I'll transcribe 'em here.  Karma for the find!

In the name of passion,
You let them abuse you.
And in the name of fashion,
You let them just use you.
And with their cheap smiles,
Oh, don't they all amuse you?
But they change all the fashions and styles
Just to confuse you...

CHORUS:
You better listen to your heart
You can hear it
It's just that one small voice in the night
Listen to your heart.

Listen to your heart,
No, don't be afraid,
Just do what you know is right,
And listen to your heart...
(Now listen to your heart)
(And keep on listenin')

'Cos in the name of romance,
You keep checking out lovers,
And the feelings that always,
Get lost somewhere under the covers,
And you wind up feeling cheap,
What have you done with the night?
All alone in the morning on Sunday,
You don't know what's wrong,
You don't know what's right

CHORUS (has a bunch of minor variations so I'm going to transcribe 'em all in-line for the benefit of anyone who remembers only one or two of the variations) 
Why don't you listen to your heart,
You can hear it,
And it's cryin' out,
(Cryin' out) in the night,
Listen to your heart...

Now listen to your heart,
No, don't be afraid,
Just do what you know is right,
C'mon listen to your - (guitar solo)

So tell me,
How many lovers,
Until you figure it out?
You're caught between the fashions
And the feelings (goin' on) in your heart...

(And the feelings keep comin' on)
(Yeah the feelings keep comin' on)
(Keep coming on)

Well don't you listen to your heart,
You can hear it,
And it's cryin' out in the night,
Listen to your heart.
Listen to your heart.
It's just been one small voice in the night.
Listen to your heart...
  - Refugee, Listen to Your Heart, from the 1985 album Affairs in Babylon

Wow!! Thank you so much! I typed in those lyrics and got absolutely nothing. I guess I don't have the touch. :)
