Nana Mouskouri – A Place In My Heart lyrics

(J. P. Ferland / Shaper)


I got your letter yesterday

From some small town I never knew

It told me you were on your way

But not where you were going to


You said you're following the sun

But do you really know for sure

For after all is said and done

Just what it is you' re looking for


There' s a place in my heart

I wish that your eyes could see

And there' s no one on earth

Who loves you as much as me


If you just travel on and on

Till I don't know where

There's a place in my heart

You may never find again


And so you travel with the wind

You' ll find some road to fly along

And though your letter says the word

Your heart may soon forget the song


Then you may someday write the poem

That tells your life in words of fire

But you will never have a home

Or find the love that you desire

(Repeat 3-4-)


And so heading for the sea

Now that the flowers are in bloom

Just when the wild mimosa tree

Is like the colour of our room

(Repeat 4)
