Lyrics

Heart Shadow

Written By: Jim Matei

Heart Shadow Jim Matei March 4, 2006

1st Verse

Remember the day I walked a beach
And the Universe heard my call
The air was calm and every word was clear in my mind

The sea spoke upon the beach with a rhyme from a gentle swell
The distant lights of a passing ship gave way to dream.

Chorus

Sailin’ the San Juan and Gulf Island breeze
Midnight Moon dancing over the sea.

Allow your dreams to become what they will be
Feeling a heart shadow shining on me.

2nd verse

Sailing a reach, passing by a beach, knowing dreams can come true
The Haro Strait Porpoise Dancing on the Rips just for you

Mount Baker can take your beathe away as she dominates the sky.
But my heart is larger than ever before cause of you.

Chorus

Sailin’ the San Juan and Gulf Island breeze
Midnight Moon dancing over the sea.

Allow your dreams to become what they will be
Feel your heart shadow shining on me.
