There is a place within my heart

that no man dares to go.

My wall is high, my shield is strong

to protect me from my foe.

To the ones who try to lure my spirit

with promises of love.

Who entrap me in "said" loving arms

to soar us high to stars above.

Then shatters all my hopes and dreams

and throws them to the ground,

while laughing loud and moving onward,

leaving me to drown.

So I closed this heart to those like that

to keep my life force strong.

But then one day, out of the mists,

I heard your spirit's song...

call to mine in haunting whispers

that has echoed throughout time.

I felt as if I knew your soul

in a way that was sublime.

I fought against your spirit's call

and tried so hard to flee.

But deep inside, I knew you were the one

who held the only key....

to this soul that was so closed

and safe behind its shield.

I knew deep within, you were the one

and my heart began to yield.

Gently you brought down my guard

and broke apart my wall...

carefully put back the pieces

each time I had a fall.

And proved to me by moving slow

that your love for me was true.

I felt your arms enfold me close

as I fell deeply in love with you.

Now I know, throughout eternity,  

you've been searching as I have too.

For each other, that we lost so long ago

while our souls were still brand new.

And now the lonely search is over

please hold me, never let me go.

forevermore, our hearts, our love

upon each other, we bestow.
