Heart's Horizon Lyrics

by Al Jarreau

A lullaby, my little guy to hush your crying
A lullaby, you might recall when times are trying
And sing every day all that you're realizing

Know every song sung in lightness and laughter
And don't play too long in the blues that come after
Take her along, conquer your mountains again

A lullaby, my little guy, the moon is rising
You'll awake to see a sight that's worth the prizing
That new morning star high on your heart's horizon

If you're the one that always says bygones be bygones
And when you look you've lost the ones that you relied on
Look deep in your heart
There's something to keep your eyes on

Cold distant stars slowly fade while you're sleeping
And hollow guitars will be quietly weeping
So paint the skies with your bright
Shining castles in Spain

Among the things you do each day
Here's one for trying
Give it all and give again and find reply in
That new morning star high on your heart's horizon

Look it over, so much to see
Did I say you should look at me?
Not just now, when I'm looking around
When my guard is down, pieces on the ground

In a twinkling and blinking eye
You'll be singing a lullaby
Say just how you can turn it around
When a faith is found even on the ground

Lullaby, now don't you cry, my Suz and Ryan
So, lullaby and tell them why there's no denying
That new morning star high on your heart's horizon
There's a new morning star high on your heart's horizon
