Destiny Takes a Heart

Destiny Takes a Heart ©2017 Robert George BMI

I was sitting in a Paris bistro all alone
Killing time until my midnight flight back home
When she looked up from her sketchpad at my uniform
I could see her red hair was a rose without a thorn

Then she asked to sketch me in the dancing candlelight
And her voice was like a French kiss in the lonely night

Love is like the light
Shining from a secret star
And it shines forevermore
When destiny takes a heart

She began to draw my face with charcoal,
And she found a spark within my dark soul
Where I’d long believed my faith was truly dead
She was mostly blessed but partly tragic,
And her eyes were full of ancient magic
Born from when the moon and sea were newlyweds

Then I said goodbye because I had a plane to catch
Sensing that my hidden scars were captured in her sketch

Love is like the light
Shining from a secret star
And it shines eternally
When destiny takes a heart

I was down south dwelling in the Quarter,
Tanqueray had filled my past with mortar
I’d mistaken feeling numb for feeling free
I was living in a kitchenette there,
Ev’ry night I’d walk to Lafayette Square
Where musicians played a part in healing me

And a fog bank sat upon the river like a sphinx
Then I saw her curled up on the long grass like a lynx

Love is like the light
Shining from a secret star
And it shines forevermore
When destiny takes a heart


She was eking out a living painting portraits in the square
I was eking out a death by living in despair
And she led me by the spirit to a rented room
Where tomorrow had been woven by Fortuna’s loom

And she had my Paris portrait on a wicker shelf
And she said my sadness was reflected in herself

Love is like the light
Shining from a secret star
And it shines eternally
When destiny takes a heart
O it shines forevermore
When destiny takes a heart

We joined hands like time and fate and waltzed without a song
Shadows seemed to whisper and the silence sang along
Some believe the universe is moon and stars and math
And yet it conspired to align our lonely paths

Love is like the light
Shining from a secret star
And it shines eternally
When destiny takes a heart

O love is like the light
Shining from a secret star
And it shines forevermore
When destiny takes a heart

When destiny takes a heart
When destiny takes a heart…
