It Starts In The Heart - CombiNation (JPN) 1999

written by : S. Diamond / R. Hamm


Brick by brick and stone by stone
We all find a way to build a wall
And all we get is more alone
Can't you see the stones have got to fall
We can let them stand but then nobody wins
Or we can work together find somewhere to begin

(chorus)
It starts in the heart
Way down in the soul
That's the only place
The seeds of love can grow
Then you'll realize that we're not that far apart
If you want to build a bridge
It starts in the heart

I look at you, you look at me
Can't you tell that I am on your side
Though we sometimes disagree
We Can find a way to make it right
Though the road is long
And isn't always clear
I know there's a way to get there from here

(chorus)

The road I'm seeing in my dreams
Will only come if we believe
It starts in everything you say
Every smile and every way
It starts the moment that we see
There's more to life you and me
Love is not a mystery
It starts the minute we believe

It starts in the heart
Way down in the soul, that's the only place
The seeds of love can grow
If you realize that we're not that far apart, if you want to build a bridge

II you want to build a bridge, it starts in the heart
Mmm, it starts in the heart mmm, way down in your soul,...
