Come From The Heart

Album: Willow In The Wind (1989)
  • My daddy told me when I was a young girl
    A lesson he learned, it was a long time ago
    If you want to have someone to hold onto
    You're gonna have to learn to let go

    You got to sing like you don't need the money
    Love like you'll never get hurt
    You got to dance like nobody's watchin'
    It's gotta come from the heart
    If you want it to work

    Now here is the one thing I keep forgettin'
    When everything is falling apart
    In life as in love, you know I need to remember
    There's such a thing as trying too hard

    You got to sing like you don't need the money
    Love like you'll never get hurt
    You got to dance like nobody's watchin'
    It's gotta come from the heart
    If you want it to work

    You got to sing sometimes like you don't need the money
    Love sometimes like you'll never get hurt
    You got to dance, dance, dance like nobody's watchin'
    It's gotta come from the heart if you want it to work
