Heartlines

sometimes you have to let go of fear and follow your heart, even when your head tells you it's reckless.



Oh, the river, oh, the river, it's running free,
And I'll join in the joy it brings to me
But I know it'll have to drown me,
Before I can breathe easy,
And I've seen it in the flights of birds, I've seen it in you,
The entrails of the animals, the blood running through,
But in order to get to the heart, I think sometimes you have to cut through,
But you can

keep it up
you can
i know you can

Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Keep it up, I know you can
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Cause I am

Odyssey on odyssey and land over land,
Creeping and crawling like the sea over sand
Still I follow the heartlines on your hand,
This fantasy, this fallacy, this tumbling stone
Echoes of a city that's long overgrown,
Your heart is the only place that I call home,
I cannot be returned.
You can

keep it up
you can
i know you can
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Keep it up, I know you can.
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand

What a thing to do.
What a thing to choose
But know in some way, I'm there with you
Up against the wall, on a Wednesday afternoon

Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand
Keep it up, I know you can.
Just keep following the heartlines on your hand,
Cause I am
