From The Heart Of Me

Lyrics: Donna Godchaux
Music: Donna Godchaux

Horses slide down off the mountain (note 1)
Sunlight turning red
Falls on the earth and it spreads
Even the families lower their head
As they ride

Age old faces of the mountains
Looming naturally
I wonder if they're looking at me
Their monumental eyes I can feel
And the glow in the twilight
The dawn of hope
Reminds me
Now I'm reaching out to you
Anything I can do
To be safe and warm
In your arms
All I have is the heart of you

I'd meet you anywhere in the country
Or anywhere on the sea
All over the world it could be
I would follow you
With the heart of me

Love calls echo in the valley
Dream come true tonight
Remembering you hold me tight
In tomorrow morning's light
I will find you
When I awoke the stars were out
And shining, shining for you and me
All I ever want to be
Safe and warm
In your arms
All I have from the heart of me
(1) I had thought this line was "Voices slide down off the mountain." But Donna via Alan Trist passed a correction.
