Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
My day in the hills
Has come to an end, I know.
A star has come out
To tell me it's time to go.
Verse 2
But deep in the dark green shadows,
There are voices that urge me to stay.
So I pause and I wait and I listen,
For one more sound,
For one more lovely thing
That the hills might say!
The hills are alive
With the sound of music,
With songs they have sung,
For a thousand years.
The hills fill my heart,
With the sound of music.
Verse 3
My heart wants to sing every song it hears.
My heart wants to beat like the wings
Of the birds that rise from the lake
To the trees.
Verse 4
My heart wants to sigh
Like a chime that flies
From a church on a breeze,
To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls
Over stones on its way
To sing through the night,
Like a lark who is learning to pray.
I go to the hills
When my heart is lonely.
Verse 5
I know I will hear
What I heard before.
My heart will be blessed
With the sound of music
And I'll sing once more.
