Shadows are falling and I'm running out of breath
Keep me in your heart for awhile
If I leave you it doesn't mean I love you any less
Keep me in your heart for awhile

When you get up in the morning and you see that crazy sun
Keep me in your heart for awhile
There's a train leaving nightly called “when all is said and done”
Keep me in your heart for awhile

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo
Keep me in your heart for awhile
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo
Keep me in your heart for awhile

Sometimes when you're doing simple things around the house
Maybe you'll think of me and smile
You know I'm tied to you like the buttons on your blouse
Keep me in your heart for awhile

Hold me in your thoughts, take me to your dreams
Touch me as I fall into view
When the winter comes keep the fires lit
And I will be right next to you

Engine driver's headed north to Pleasant Stream
Keep me in your heart for awhile
These wheels keep turning but they're running out of steam
Keep me in your heart for awhile

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo
Keep me in your heart for awhile
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo
Keep me in your heart for awhile

Keep me in your heart for awhile

    Warren wrote this when he knew his time left here on earth was short. It is a song of love, farewell and comfort for those loved ones left behind.

    It's a love song at it's best... People come and go and lessons are learned from each and every one... Those people remain in our hearts but the sorrow and loss grows less as we grow... Because no matter what anyone thinks love can never be forgotten

    I heard the song "Keep me in Your Heart" in a CSI program and thought it would be a perfect song to play at my funeral, it just says everything I feel as I have a long distance relationship with my children and their families, hopefully when they hear the lyrics they will think of me.
