Lyrics

"This was another song that wasn't quite finished until I went for a walk with it.
I wandered along the back lanes of the Niagara escarpment wine country
with pen and paper singing happily away until five miles later it was complete."

If I hide from my heart and shelter the feelings
Will we soon drift apart like a disappearing tide
We have the choice to believe or deny
Listen to the voice that you hear inside

If the barriers are broken we might understand
How to share our emotions with an open hand

Time takes it's toll when you harbor the hurting
Distances can grow between a family of friends
Why fill your words full of sugar and spite
Say what you feel then we can face the fight

If the barriers are broken we might understand
How to share our emotions with an open hand

It's never easy letting go
When clenching your emotions is all you know

You have the choice to believe or deny
Listen to the voice that you hear inside

If the barriers are broken we might understand
How to share our emotions with an open hand
