Lyrics

IN MY HEART

Morning mist drifts through the redwoods
Pierced by golden-shaft sunlight
As we wake to distant shoreline’s muted roar
Filled with peace in our cathedral, with an angel at my side

This is how I hold you in my heart

Like a long-lost childhood friend
Who reappears without warning
Like a fireworks-filled night sky, Fourth of July
Like a child’s shining eyes on a bright Christmas morning

This is how I hold you in my heart

Warm and wise and understanding
Tender, witty, exciting
You’re my lover, my companion, my best friend
You are all I’ve ever wanted and I treasure you, darling

This is how I hold you in my heart
