There were bells on a hill,
But I never heard them ringing.
No I never heard them at all
Till there was you.
There were birds in the sky,
But I never saw them winging.
No I never saw them at all
Till there was you.
Then there was music, and wonderful roses
They tell me,
In sweet fragrant meadows
Of dawn,
And you.
There was love all around,
But I never heard it singing.
No I never heard it at all
Till there was you.

    The last four lines describe the meaning as he wraps the song up. I am "dead" without true love (and fried green tomatos- no that's another song). Starting as a baby, without nurturing and closeness of security a baby will degress, eventually causing permanant damage. If there's is no touch at all early on from anything, it will die. But even just deprived, weather baby or rejected feelings (for some the worst kind of ptsd), to bring one "back to life" in inner truest of all realities, will let him see again. But "if the blind lead the blind" neither one will come out of the ditch they fall in. Real love casts out fear and fear doesn't trust to find love. So i want to relearn faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is love. It gives me life so i finally notice love and beauty and nature and peace. Sgh

    You can have so many pieces to the puzzle but until you meet that one person that has the key piece, you have nothing. I'm using this song at my wedding.

    This song means--high school years...good times...memories of long ago. A much better time in my life. No cares No problems No worries!
