I See It Through My Heart

Background:

I wanted to write a love song that expressed how love is known, no matter what the circumstances. I have always been inspired by Gayle and Mac Shann’s love story and had previously written a love song with them in mind, so their story certainly influenced me at a deep level. (Gayle suffered horrific injuries in a farm accident, and it was sheer beauty to see the love and commitment between her and her husband as they got on with their lives.)

However, as I wrote this, my daughter and her fiancée’s love for each other also inspired me. This was the love song I could dedicate to them on their wedding day.


Lyrics:

I try to paint a picture of love

With words and a melody

It’s not just through my eyes

I see how much you mean to me

Within my heart there’s a knowing

There’s a pounding with every beat

You give me love like a summer lake

So warm and so deep


While the sun shines so bright

And the clouds bring on the rain

The sky changes from day to day

Still your love eases my pain

Doesn’t matter what the weather brings

Your heart is safe with me

Cos you and me, my darling

We were meant to be


Chorus:

If I lost the way to see the world

Lost the freedom to dance and speak

If I couldn’t hear the songs

You sing to me so sweet

I’d still know your love

Darling, so tenderly

I’d see it through

See it through my heart

See it through my heart

 


No one would ever know

No one could understand

Just how deep is the love

As this woman loves this man

So dance with me my darling

Whisper words into my ear

Sing me that love song

That I love to hear


Tell me that forever

We will never part

And that you’ll always be my light

When I’m lost in the dark

So dance with me my darling

Whisper words into my ear

Sing me that love song

That I love to hear


Chorus


I’d see it through

See it through my heart

See it through my heart
