State Of The Heart


PP&M No Easy Wask To Freedom
Peter, Paul & Mary
No Easy Walk To Freedom





Stookey/Kniss
1984  Neworld Media Music Publishing

There are voices by my pillow, they remind me when to rise
And they tell me if my morning's under gray or sunny skies
And then they dedicate a record, "Our Love Will Never Die",
By a group that's been disbanded,
Though it's seldom mentioned why
But they say that there's a chip in every part
Of the state of the heart

Answering an ancient invitation
When's the proper time for us to go?
Turning from our separate destinations
Now we say goodbye, and now we say hello

But there are signs out on the highway, writing on the walls
Hungry eyes in doorways where the drifting dreamer falls
And we can watch it on our TV's, there's a dish out on the lawn
And we wonder where the valley of reality has gone
When they say they've got a tape on every part
Of the state of the heart.

And I read about this city
The street are paved with gold
And the Spirit lives forever and a body can't grow old
And though they say the gate is narrow
And the path is straight and true
I know it's made for lovers
'Cause I've seen what Love can do
And I know that when we die we never part
From the State of the Heart
