The Voice

If I spoke from the heart and you could hear
You could ride the sound
Back to the beginning and see you who you are

If I spoke from the heart, my tears would be a river
Running to the sea
An ocean of sweetest water

If I spoke from the heart, my joyful laughter
Would fill the universe
And ring the galaxies like a wind chime

If I spoke from the heart, you would hear
My voice call
From time past, present and to come

All our wounded children, it would heal them
Every last one of them
The world, if ever it were, would be whole again.
