From the recording 4. Closer To My Heart


We met by fate or happenstance                                                                                                             A life or two ago                                                                                                                                               And tied a lasting thread                                                                                                                               Between the center of our souls                                                                                                                                        This spin around the wheel                                                                                                                         Had traveled over half its arc                                                                                                                      When destiny revealed the road                                                                                                              That brought you closer to my heart                                                                                                                                                        My life has been an odyssey                                                                                                                       A million wayward steps                                                                                                                               I sailed in charted waters                                                                                                                              When I should have dared the depths                                                                                                                             I will find my destination                                                                                                                               If you’ll be my northern star                                                                                                                       You’re a thousand miles away                                                                                                                    But you’ve never been closer to my heart                                                                                                                       You give me every reason                                                                                                    To believe that love will not be bound                                                                                    By the counting of the seasons of our lives                                                                                                                  And when our time has ended                                                                                                  The future is extended                                                                                                         By the power of the love that will survive                                                                                                                              Some future morning far away                                                                                                                  Two lovers will embrace                                                                                                                               Who think that through a chance event                                                                                                 They stumbled to that place                                                                                                                                                 Each beginning has an ending                                                                                                                     But their final au revoir                                                                                                                                  Will hold the persevering trace of love                                                                                                   That brought you closer to my heart                                                                                                                                  Each beginning has an ending                                                                                                                     But our final au revoir                                                                                                                                    Will hold the persevering trace of love                                                                                                   
That brought you closer to my heart
