Treasure Island

Mark Heathcote

(22/03/66 / Manchester)

Show me the distance to your heart


Show me the distance to your heart
And I'll journey to you
On a catamaran I'll sail
To your heart
Through a force 9 gale
Around the Cape of Good Hope
I'll sail to be with you

Show me the distance to your heart
And I'll be drifting homeward to you
Like driftwood could you rescue me?
From the flotsam of the deep blue sea
Two castaways we'll be
Oh my love and me

Only because its you
Do I want you to sail the oceans blue
Only because its you
Do I do this untold thing for you?
Oh show me the distance to your heart
Show me the distance to your soul
Love I'm under passions starting-
Orders to over power the starboard
Engine of your heart and soul…

Show me there's no need to disguise
The fact you love me
When I'm sailing through the vastness
Of the dark to meet you
In the light of my heart…
In the light of my heart…
In the light of my heart…

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
