Home In My Heart – Matthews
From the album ‘Slow’ Julie Matthews


Rest a while, close your weary eyes
There’s nothing here to fear in the dark
In my arms, I’ll listen to your breathing
And you can make your home in my heart


Did it hurt, did it tear your heart to pieces
Did you learn to cradle all that pain inside
But now it’s gone, it’s over dead and buried
And you can see yourself in my eyes


You can cut the diamond but it’s still as bright as ever
It only makes its beauty multiply
Hearts get broken, some they never mend
Others learn to spread their wings and fly


Rest a while, your head upon my shoulder
I’ll tender to your unseen wounds and scars
In my arms, I’ll hold you while you sleep
And you can make your home in my heart
