Heart Of The World

  • Tin cans rattlin' pavement
    Confetti scattered everywhere
    She falls asleep in the seat beside me
    Rice caught up in her hair

    I don't mind it, I keep drivin',
    Flying on these wheels of steel
    A bit anxious, a bit nervous
    The moment's all that we can feel

    If oil is the soul of the engine
    And wine is the drink of the Gods
    Forgiveness the road to redemption
    Faith can still beat the odds
    We're meant to be, baby hold on to me
    You'll never not be my girl
    'Cause love is the heart of the world

    I leave him sleepin' as I rise early
    Always up before the dawn
    The house is dark, but I see clearly
    Kettle sings a morning song
    The bacon's frying, babies crying
    I soak up the sights and sounds
    Minutes turn to days and I wish that I could slow it down

    If grease is the soul of the kitchen
    And coffee the drink of the Gods
    Routine too perfect to mention
    Time is a thief I would rob
    We're meant to be, baby hold onto me
    I'll never not be your girl
    'Cause love is the heart of the world

    Oh, and hope is soul of the dreamer
    And heaven is the home of my God
    It only takes one true believer
    To believe you can still beat the odds

    We're meant to be baby hold onto me
    You'll never not be my girl (I'll never not be your girl)
    'Cause love is the heart, love is the heart,
    Love is the heart of the world Writer/s: Scooter Carusoe, Tom Douglas
