My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds
That rise from the lake to the trees.
My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies
From a church on a breeze
To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls over
Stones on its way,
To sing through the night like a lark who is learning to pray.
I go to the hills when my heart is lonely
I know I hear what I’ve heard before
My heart will be blessed with the sound of music
And I’ll sing once more
