Barb Ryman: Music/Listen

Heart's Desire

(Barb Ryman)

 

I’m tired of looking back

A prisoner of what I lack

I’m fed up with everything that

Leaves me feeling down & out

 

I’m shaking off the old debris

I’m giving up the “poor ol’ me”

No more blaming the family tree

I’m living life authentically

 

I don’t even know the way I go from here

But one thing’s clear

The path reveals itself

As I clear this clutter out

Every breath is getting lighter

Every outlook so much brighter

For my heart’s desire

 

So I’m throwing out old magazines

With stories about broken dreams

I’m turning off the voice that screams

That life is hard and love is lost

 

I’m cleaning out the dirt and dust

Of excuses like fear and trust

I’m going where I know I must

To have my great adventure

 

I don’t even know the way I go from here

But one thing’s clear

The path reveals itself

As I clear this clutter out

Every breath is getting lighter

Every outlook so much brighter

For my heart’s desire

 

I’m sweeping up the shards of glass

From broken hearts along my past

Love is just way too vast

To try and hold it back

 

I’ll take each piece and build anew

A grand mosaic in every hue

And hang it out for all to view

This is my life, I made it

 

I don’t even know the way I go from here

But one thing’s clear

The path reveals itself

As I clear this clutter out

Every breath is getting lighter

Every outlook so much brighter

For my heart’s desire
