Language of the Heart

1988 Jim Stewart and Bernie Houlahan

 

Jim dedicates this song to our friend Capt. Dave Kennedy and the great Canadian poet Alden Nowlan. (GB)

 

 

You will always fly, even though your journey's over

Stars will chart your sky, and the moon will be your lover

 

Chorus:

Fortune plays a lonely game that forces some to part,

But here and there are much the same in the language of the heart.

 

You will always sail, even though the winds would leave you

Your ship can never fail, and the seas can never grieve you

 

You will always sing, thought the melody lies broken

Your voice will always ring, though the words may be unspoken

 

You will always be, even though time would disown you

For you have set us free, those among us who have known you

 

 

 

Language of the Heart is recorded on the album Language of the Heart
