put it in your heart lyrics – bruce cockburn

as i stare into the flames
filled up with feelings i can’t name
images of life appear —
regret and anger, love and fear
dark things drift across the screen
of mine behind whose veil are seen
love’s ferocious eyes, and clear
the words come flying to my ear
go on — put it in your heart —
put it in your heart
terrible deeds done in the name
of tunnel vision and fear of change
surely are expressions of
a soul that’s turned its back on love
all the sirens all the tongues
the song of air in every lung
heaven’s perfect alchemy
put me with you and you with me
come on — put that in your heart
come on, put it in your heart
all the sirens all the tongues
the song of air in every lung
heaven’s perfect alchemy
put me with you and you with me

come on, put it in your heart
come on, put it in your heart
