I Am the Heart

I light up when you walk in this crowded room
Like a match struck suddenly in the dark
And above all of these strangers' voices
You're the one that I hear
And when we're lying in our own bed skin-to-skin, I awaken
And through these white wine and blue smoke nights I see you clear

I want it pure
I want it real
I want it tender
And I want it to last
And when the hustle of this prison world
Has got you weary to the bone
When there's no ocean
No rising island
When there's no north star in heaven's dome, O Baby
I am the heart that will lead you home

When we go walking arm-in-arm
Beneath the stars fixed in their flights
Out where the Big Dipper holds
A million galaxies inside of its cup
I get filled, overflowing! with your scent that fills my days and my nights
And everything I thought I knew about love O Baby I will it give up

I want it pure
I want it real
I want it tender
And I want it to last
And when the hustle of this prison world
Has got you weary to the bone
When there's no ocean
No rising island
When there's no north star in heaven's dome, O Baby
I am the heart that will lead you home O Darling!
I am the heart that will lead you home



I Am the Heart


Geoff; vocal, 1971 Martin D-35 in standard tuning, key of E
