Lyrics Post: “Closer to the Heart”

I first heard this song when I was a teenager. It’s one of the first of many songs that changed my life for the better.

From that point to today, certain songs have come along that fundamentally shape and affirm my perspectives and attitudes. Funny that songs do that to us.

What a gift.

And the men who hold high places
Must be the ones who start
To mold a new reality
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart

The blacksmith and the artist
Reflect it in their art
They forge their creativity
Closer to the heart
Yes closer to the heart

Philosophers and plowmen
Each must know his part
To sow a new mentality
Closer to the heart
Yes closer to the heart, yeah, oh

Whoa whoa
You can be the captain
And I will draw the chart
Sailing into destiny
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart
Well closer to the heart, yeah
Closer to the heart
Closer to the heart

I said closer to the heart
Well closer to the heart, yeah
Closer to your heart
Closer to your heart, whoa
