You need not to climb mountaintops,
You need not to cross the sea,
You need not to find a cure for everything that makes you weak.
You need not to reach for the stars when life becomes so dark,
And when the wind does blow against the grain,
You must follow your heart,
You must follow your heart.

When all your friends have come and gone,
And the sun no longer shines,
And the happiness for which you long is washed away like an ocean's tide,
When all the hard times outweigh the good,
And all your words are misunderstood,
When the day seems lost from the stars
You must follow your heart,
You must follow your heart.

If you feel you've paid the price,
And your wounds should cease to heal
And everything you love in life spins like a winding wheel.
If you should wake to find you're abandoned,
And the road you've traveled leads to a dead-end

When death creeps in to play it's part,
You must follow your heart,
You must follow your heart.

    I must follow my heart. It's what i truely want not what i think i need. Friends come and go, so you never know who you're true friends are.

    The meaning is pretty self explanatory-dallas's beautiful lyrics should serve as an uplifting reminder to us all to not lose hope no matter how dark life becomes. And that the greatest source of guidance, confidence, and motivation is the heart.

    Just follow your heart no matter what obstacle come in the way. God knows what's best. The right road is always the most tough... But most worth it!
