MY HEART CONTRACTS

IT PULLS AT MY HEARTSTRINGS 

My heart contracts
when a child laughs
My heart contracts
When I fall in love
My heart contracts
when you glance at me.
When you are silent
My heart contracts.

My heart contracts
The dream and its disintegration
My heart is still hungry
and the time draws near.
My heart contracts
my eyes in your eyes
I am still drawn to you
My heart contracts.

My heart contracts
when the song begs within me
To go out into the fresh air of the world
and survive
My heart contracts
when we are all together
With a very special significance.


My heart contracts
To see your smiles
My heart contracts
you - and all the pain.
My heart contracts
In the depth of our friendship
that we could have had,
We could have had long ago
My heart contracts

On the verge of tears
On a very tight rope
I feel totally exposed
With my skin in goose bumps.
And feelings that whisper
My hair is on end …
And I don't know
I am permanently puzzled
The why and wherefore
And my heart, my heart is broken
And my heart contracts

My heart contracts
A mother and child
The radio, the paper, news…
My heart contracts
What will become of us here
And how we will find strength
in our difficult hours

On the verge of tears
On a very tight rope
I feel totally exposed
With my skin in goose bumps.
And feelings that whisper
My hair is on end …
And I don't know
I am permanently puzzled
The why and wherefore
And my heart, my heart is broken
And my heart contracts
