What happens to a heart when love breaks? Does it fade into a shadow of remorse, when it aches? Or can it fly to the sky like a bird, Lighter than ever, stronger too Oh I think a heart always learns to come through. We were like children lost in our own dream We never knew love's a garden and hard to grow We thought the magic would lead us upstream But we fell, it's not our fault, it's how currents flow Even though it's hard to know you are leaving this picture You remain another memory of summer when we loved Even the winter cold feels warm Shining with light from all I kept inside from you That is how the heart can live on and on

Does it fade into a shadow of remorse, when it bends? Or can it fly to the sky like a bird, Lighter than ever, stronger too Oh I think a heart always learns to come through. Where do the teardrops go when they dry? Do they follow all the raindrops and return to the sky? Even a sparrow with broken wings, Looks at the sun and finds a song Oh I think a heart always learns to be strong. Where did the sorrow go? Who gave me back the sun? I don't know Opening my eyes, I see blue skies...
