MY FLAMING HEART

image

How many women
Can quench my thirst?

How many loves
Can calm my racing heart?

How many homes
Can contain all my feelings?

My flaming heart
Will have its piece

My flaming heart
Will have its peace

O flaming heart
Be still, be still…

The wind is blowing
The river is flowing –
Peace, be still.
