The Drum

And in my mind I hear the beat
It echoes in my soul
And it's a cadence I have to seek
A rhythm I must know

Thought I had found it once
But it was just the waves
Unconcerned and laughing as they
Lap upon the sand
Yet I stood in wonder at the
Music that they made
I listened to their song, but still I
Just couldn't play

But then I find my heart has strength to try
One more time

The next time I heard the meter pounding on the street
Drops of rain that wet my feet
A thunderstorm
All around me melody comes
Raining from the sky
And hides a teardrop in my eye
Don't know this song
Still, my heart goes on

What if I accept the chance?
My heart and hand could dance
No unfamiliar phrase
Interrupts a thought to raise
The only rhythm I can find
That beats in perfect time

But all around, the gifts on men inspire
The sorrow that my offer's dire
The angry voice of men is louder
Than my arms have strength this drum to pound

What if I accept the chance
My heart and hand could dance
No unfamiliar phrase

The lie is gone, and I know I surely feel
My heart belongs
My heart belongs
The fire's come and I know I surely feel
An internal drum
An internal song

With confidence I set my feet
And prepare my drum
A child playing for a King
And my heart is strong

I start to play and I find that I can hear the waves
I can hear the rain
My heart take me there
Where I learned the wonder of a laughing sky
And the quiet sound
Of the song inside
The drumming of my heart goes on

And in the distance I can hear
The sound of setting suns
And I realize I fear
If in the dark my heart goes on and on and on

What if all I've learned and played
Is set to die with me?
Is the valiance of my contribution real?
Was my resolve to stand and drum another day
A foolish waste of precious time for all I feel?

No, I can't hear that it's all a game
That I'll fade away
I believe that I must play
With Desire
My desire

I start to play and I find that I can hear the waves
I can hear the rain
My heart takes me there
And in they night my rhythms echo through the pain
They were not in vain
They were not in vain
The drumming of my heart goes on
