Daevid Allen – Wise Man In Your Heart lyrics

Wise Man In Your Heart - daevid allen, mike howlett,
Pierre moerlen

I met a man a wise old man
The day I lost my pride
He told me he belonged to me
But from me he would hide
But that I would not hear his voice
Until I learned to sing
Now every time I sing I know that I belong to him

Singing Oh why
Singing Oh why

He told me he would teach me everything I tried to know
He made me see that you & me are dreamers in a show
& when the days were darkest then
He lit them with his moon
& then we crossed the rainbow bridge
& we came back too soon

Singing Oh why
Singing Oh why

He showed me where he was Atman
That man I could not see
He pointed to the sky until
A ladder I could see
I climbed for many lives to find the secret golden
But then I woke & found I'd slept for less than half an

Where is your wise man?
How is the wise man?
Who is this wise man?
Who is this wise man?

He brought us all together then
When I was all alone
He made me see that we could not
Be only flesh & bone

Well it makes you feel so beautiful
You can tell yourself apart
Every time you listen to
The wise man in your heart
