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
But deep in the dark green shadows
Are voices that urge me to stay
So I pause and I wait and I listen
For one more sound, or one more lovely thing
That the hills might say
Verse 2
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
My heart wants to sing every song it hears
Verse 3
My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds that rise
From the lake to the trees
My heart wants to sigh like the sound of a chime that flies
From a church on a breeze
To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls
Over stones in its way
To sing to the night
Like a lark that is learning to pray
Verse 4
I go to the hills when my heart is lonely
I know I will hear what I've heard before
My heart will be blessed with the sound of music
And I'll sing once more
