Crosby, Stills & Nash – Heartland lyrics

Graham Nash

People come and go

Living other lives

Running everywhere at such a speed

Never taking time

To open up their eyes

Never knowing where life leads

In the heartland people everywhere

Try to share their hopes and dreams

In the heartland on any given day

You can find your way back home

Take another breath

And take another chance

Take another look at who you are

And get ready for your live

Cause it's such a crazy dance

So open up and you'll go far

We've been running so far away

From where our lives belong

Will we ever get back to the rhythm of the heartbeat

Do you ever feel sad

For those whose hearts have turned to stone

You are not alone

It's time to take it slow

Time to take a rest

Time to leave the fast lane far behind

Live is hard enough, I know

But you can only do your best

To get it in your heart and minds
