Lyrics

Over dark apples that grow into heather

And down to the ocean that leads to the world

And doves coo a greeting announcing our meeting

As we step on sea shells that gather in baskets

Aimlessly looking to see distant boats

And seagulls are shrieking to warn of our meeting

And we step on blindly no care for the future for we'll take our chances and join in the dance

For we still live in hope that someone will throw us a rope

We walk to the path that leads through the grasses and over the sand

Our hearts are coming,they follow our footsteps

Our hearts in our hands

And then comes the waiting and which one will reach out

Will it be you? Will it be me?

The seagulls are shrieking along the path down to the sea

I wait for the weekend then reach for the phone

Too tired of the fear of being alone

For love has a mind of its own..........

And then come the brushes that lift through the lashes

We stumble yet smile through the tentative looks

And we spend sweet hours and you give me flowers

We smooth the shadows and put down our burdens

And step through the heather that grows near my home

And you come inside

For love has a mind of its own...........

About the song

The search for love is an endless one .From the moment we feel that first kiss,the one that thrills us,we know that life will never be the same. Some of us get lucky,we find that special person who we can't possibly let get away and we build a life of contentment together .Some of us are not so fortunate and we are rejected or we feel trapped and have to get away.

Can we ,dare we go through it all again? Can we put  all those little pieces of our heart back together in some form,long enough to convince ourselves that yes,this time that special someone will be there,out there,aimlessly looking to see distant boats? Looking for us...

We must smooth the shadows and put down our burdens.We have to go where our hearts take us

For love has a mind of its own....
