Line of Gold

Performed and written by Barbara Higbie

A Line of Gold across the evening sky.
The branches of a big tree reach across the light
This is our open-hearted home
This is the place where we belong

Your eyes were in my mind before we met
When we did a flood of joy I never will forget
You are my open-hearted home
You are the place where I belong

Cause life goes by so damn fast
And we are only here to love

And when we ever fight and feel the strain
And endless pressures try their best to drag us ‘round the bend
Back to this moment we will go
This is our open-hearted home
Back to this moment we will go
You are my open-hearted home
