In This Mortal Heart

  1. In This Mortal Heart -:-- / -:--

Words and music by David Massey


This feeling I have, it wasn’t built in a day

It won’t last forever

Each day must break, the thoughtless years run their course

Time will still our dreaming


But in this mortal heart, you are to me

Like the brightness to the day

The restless murmur of the sea


I don’t know, from whence we come, where we go

A chance that must be taken

I hold you close, look in your eyes, say your name

I’ll take what we are given



* Life is but grass, love just a flower of the field

That lights a season passing

The winter comes, the wind it blows, we are gone

and we are known no more



* paraphrased from Ecclesiastes
