The Heart Needs

Lyrics: Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay, Will McFarlane
Music: Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay, Will McFarlane

At a time when there seems to be nothing
And the grass appears green somewhere else
There is a heart need

Or holding to a dream from a distance
And facing every doubt that could be felt
How great is the heart need
The heart needs
The heart waits
How long will it take to come true

There are times when we go through the motions
And sometimes we fly off the wall
We don't know there's a heart need

How many ways can it be broken
Until spoken words mean nothing at all?
Who can speak to our heart need?
The heart needs

Like wind in a sail is a heart that is strong
Lifting us up to where we belong
Like the rivers run to the sea
The wonder of the power of love
Can satisfy every heart need

There are times we can keep it together
And sometimes we break down and cry
We know there's a heart need

There are times when the lantern is empty
And sometimes the well has gone dry
So deep are the heart needs
The heart needs

Like wind in a sail is a heart that is strong
Lifting us up to where we belong
As the rivers run to the sea
The wonder of the power of love
Can satisfy every heart need
The heart needs
