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



            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
