  • Over mountains and sky blue seas
    On great circles will you watch for me?
    The sweetest feeling I've got inside
    I just can't wait to get lost in your eyes
    And all these words that you meant to say
    Held in silence day after day
    Words of kindness that our poor hearts crave
    Please don't keep them
    Hidden away

    Sing it out so I can finally breathe
    And I can take in all you say
    Holding out for something I believe in
    All I really need today
    I want to free your heart
    I want to see your heart
    Please don't keep your heart
    Hidden away

    You're a wonder, how bright you shine
    A flickered candle in a short lifetime
    A secret dreamer that never shows
    If no one sees you then nobody knows
    And all these words you were meant to say

    Held in silence day after day
    Words of kindness that our poor hearts crave
    Please don't keep them
    Hidden away

    Sing it out so I can finally breathe
    And I can take in all you say
    Reaching out for someone I believe in
    All I really need today
    I want to feel your love
    Will you reveal your love
    Please don't keep your love
    Hidden away

    I want to free your heart
    I want to see your heart
    Please don't keep your heart
    Hidden away

    You
