The Spirit In My Heart
by John Webb

You are the Spirit in my heart
Darkness on the face of the deep
I keep thinking about you Arleen
And I can hardly sleep

I'm traveling in my dreams
Traveling till the dawn of day
You're always on my mind
You just won't stay away

I can feel you near
It's just as plain as it can be
I was so in love with you
But sometimes you were a complete mystery

I just can't explain
The depth of my lover's pain
You are burned into my heart
And your memories are chiseled into my brain

I've been wallowing through such ache
Praying to the powers above
I need you with me again
The darkness of my despair begs for the light of your love

My life without you
Doesn't mean a thing to me
If I can't have you again
Then throw my love into a raging sea.

At times when you were with me
I was a thousand times happier than I could ever say
And I now need it to matter again
But heart-shattering grief is the price I have to pay?

I always see you in my mind
And I'm blinded by the vision I see
I want to take you in my arms again
And that's all that matters to me

I hear your name and your voice
Ringing up and down inside my mind
I hear them so very plain
The hurt is enough to make me go blind.

Now your sweet voice
Calls out as if from a sacred shrine
But I’m left with deafened ears
I don't want it to fade from my mind

Now I see you high on a hill
And you carry all my thoughts with you
Your loss has numbed me to my very soul
This loss of love will tear me in two

I want to be with you in paradise
And it all seems so unfair
But I can't go to paradise with you right now
So please prepare a place for us there.
