Peter Gabriel — The Power Of The Heart lyrics

The page contains the lyrics of the song "The Power Of The Heart" by Peter Gabriel.


you and me we always sweat and we strain
you look for sun and I look for rain
we’re different people, we’re not the same
the power of the sun
I looked for treetops, you looked for caps
above the water, where the waves snap back
I flew around the world to bring you back
ah the power of the heart
you looked at me and I looked at you
the sleeping heart was shining through
the wispy cobwebs that we’re breathing through
the power of the heart
I looked at you and you looked at me
I thought of the past, you thought of what could be I asked you once again to marry me the power of the heart
Everybody says love makes the world go round
I hear a bubbling and I hear a sound
of my heart beating and I turn around
and find you standing at the door
you know me I like to dream a lot
of this and that and what is not
and finally I figured out what was what
it was the power of the heart
You and me we sweat and strain
the result is always the same
you think somehow we’re in a game
the power of the heart
the power of the heart
I think I’m dumb I know you’re smart
the beating of a purebred heart
I say this to you and it’s not a lark
marry me today
You know me I like to dream a lot
of what there is and what there’s not
but mainly I dream of you a lot
the power of the heart
the power of the heart
