Lyrics - HEARTS SPEAK OUT

1. In this world there are many things
Some we’ve had and some we’re holding on to
We share the sun on different days
We wait with silence ‘til tomorrow comes.

Chorus: Hearts Speak Out, shouting louder joy
Hearts are speaking out to say the gentle things
Hearts Speak Out, when tomorrow comes
Hearts are speaking out, we rule the world

2. War is time and hate is half the reason
We’re too busy making too many movies
We share the sun on different days
We wait with silence ‘til tomorrow comes.

Chorus: Hearts Speak Out, shouting louder joy
Hearts are speaking out to say the gentle things
Hearts Speak Out, when tomorrow comes
Hearts are speaking out, we rule the world

Bridge: A heart will break, but we still go on living
My heart hears the sound that you’re calling
Chorus: Hearts Speak Out, shouting louder joy
Hearts are speaking out to say the gentle things
Hearts Speak Out, when tomorrow comes
Hearts are speaking out, we rule the world
We rule the world… oh yeah (repeat and fade). © Toni Janke, 1993

Lyrics - Jewel of the North

Jewel of the North
My shimmering pearl
Mother of God, sweet baby girl
We ran through the cane fields on fire
The mountains around us seemed higher
And then we heard the sound of a rare, rare bird
When you called my name

Jewel of the North
We’re sailing home
Like innocent rain
Too close to the bone
We danced under silver moonlight
While the campfire burned through the night
And then we heard the sound of a rare, rare bird
When you called my name

Jewel of the North
Where are you now?
I remember your voice
So distant somehow
We sang all the old songs back then
We laughed and we danced once again
And then we heard the sound of a rare, rare bird
When you called my name
When you called my name… © Toni Janke, 2004
