You turn my heart to stone
Lyrics
You turn my heart to stone
© 2015 Bruce Mills (SOCAN)

The words I need to say
Are very hard to find
Just like messages in bottles
That you find beside the ocean

The words I want to speak
Are very hard to say
They're like voices blowing in the wind
They're just too far away
For me to hear them

The words I need to pray
The wish I need to hold
The promise that I try to keep
Just slips away from me like gold

The questions in my mind
The answers I can't find
Because you turn your eyes away
From me and keep my truth inside

Chorus
You turn my heart to stone
Turn me cold like the snow
And there's nowhere left to go
When you turn my heart to stone

The pain within my soul
The story no one told
Are connected somehow to the
Way the river flows in summer - but

The water turns to glass
And the past is washed away
And you keep your fire burning
Like you want the day to last forever

The words I need to say
Are very hard to find
Just like messages in bottles
Carried on the ocean tide

The words I want to speak
Are very hard to say
Just like voices blowing in the wind
They're just too far away
For me to hear them
For me to hear them
No one can hear them
The words I need to say
