The Beating Of My Heart Lyrics

The Beating Of My Heart by Leila Vey

©2001. Music & Lyrics by Leila Vey

The darkness falls and all is still
The street light dies and there is no vision
The mist descends in a blanket of chill
As the beating of my heart echoes without end
But the silence is my friend.

I need to think I carry Light
I need to think it’s here in my darkness
Holding my heart, breathing in the fire
Giving my strength to live in the mire of my life.

Nothing to see yet nothing to fear
The stillness reigns in a quiet splendour
Searching for answers and finding them here
As the beating of my heart echoes without end…
The silence is my friend.

I like to feel I carry Light
I like to feel it’s here in my darkness
Holding my hand as it leads the way
Guiding me on to the dawn of a new day.

Blinded by the brilliance of a new day’s light
Visions come in the night and restore my sight
The veil is lifted and new warmth flows in
And the beating of my heard echoes without end…
The silence was my friend.

I know that I am in the Light
I know that it was there in my darkness
Guarding my heart safely with great love
I always knew that I would rise above my strife.

I know that I am the Light
I know it’s with me when I walk in darkness
In the beating of my heart I can hear the Name
With every breath I know that I am that I am.
With every breath I know that I am that I am.
