Lyrics

As simple as just yesterday
You soothed away all my tears
And I could face any danger just knowing you were here
Missin you keeps you close to me
So I hold on to our time gone by
I know I don't have to tell you why

From the heart
I will always remember how we loved From the heart
We will always be together
From the heart

You deserved the happiness you sought but it was always just out of reach
So you learned to live with the pain helpless I remained unable to teach
For you were the teacher of life
A mentor of love in a single sigh
But I never learned to say goodbye

From the heart
I will always remember how we loved From the heart
We will always be together

In your eyes I learned wisdom
Your touch made darkness into light
You always understood the dreams within And you used your strength to win the fight

We walk together as the sun goes down We don't see the light as it slips away I hold you close when the storm begins As we try to keep our fears at bay
I know you never meant to leave but life as it's mean tricks to play
When the night is cold I can hear you say

From the heart
I will always remember how we loved From the heart
We will always be together
From the heart
