Heart

Brian's Songs

Celia Street

I woke up today at dawn, hearing a different sound
Something quite foreign invading my sleep
Two children running and laughing and playing
Michel and Kristen I woke up to see

Living before alone, sometimes with older ones
Always the children from a distance I'd see
I got up went into the kitchen for coffee
A child's world once foreign is now part of me

This place I found, where fantasies abound
And live the life of storybooks amidst the children's sounds
Amidst all the children's sounds

The world I see in her eyes so clear and elated
Around every new turn adventure awaits
A question lies in his mind at each new encounter
We sit on a beach and just watch time go by
We sit on a beach and sing songs to the sky

This place I found, where fantasies abound
And live the life of storybooks amidst the children's sounds
Amidst all the children's sounds

There mother is painting a canvas, a ceiling
There are no boundaries beginning or end
Caught in a whirlwind of family relations
Caught up completely but never so free
Caught in the smiling of all that I see

This place I found, where fantasies abound
And live the life of storybooks amidst the children's sounds
Amidst all the children's sounds

Kristen

I once met with a child now
As fair as fine could be
When first I met this child now she frolicked by the sea
Her laughter filled the air with a light and joyous sound
She had a simple smile and she sang a simple song

I'll laugh my Lord, I'll cry my Lord
It's all the same to me
I'll laugh with pain and cry with joy
With every part of me
And when my every inch is spent and I must take my leave
Then take my body to the shore and give it to the sea

We laughed and danced by starlight In manners rather bold
And not until the dawn had crowed were all the stories told
The games we'd played had left me tired
But she played on and on
She had a simple smile and she sang a simple song

I'll laugh my Lord, I'll cry my Lord
It's all the same to me
I'll laugh with pain and cry with joy
With every part of me
And when my every inch is spent and I must take my leave
Then take my body to the shore and give it to the sea
