Listen to Forever in a Heartbeat by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Children by Robert Miles

Breathe with me
Peacefully
Tune in to higher wave frequency
Seek the acoustics
Attuned to each beat of me
Ceaselessly
Lay down and sleep with me
Fall in too deep with me
Child

Every green mile
Has a blue sky to lean on
A moon rising see saw
For whence the sun dies
Where every last creature created is equal
And each ageing tree becomes equally wise
No need for disguise
For the secrets we keep
Are released to the wild
Every nightfall we sleep
While seasons may pass
We entitle their sweep
To reprise the enlighten of childlike belief
Fly our kites in the breeze
To delight as they tease
Every branch that we glance
At the height of the trees
Make balloon of the moon
And confetti of stars
As we bid the resume
Of a heavenly dance
With our hearts on our sleeves
And our chests at full mast
We are halfway between
Very end and the start
Where the pathway leads
Remains a mystery
The rest will, one fine day, be ancient history

Breathe with me
Peacefully
Tune in to higher wave frequency
Seek the acoustics
Attuned to each beat of me
Ceaselessly
Lay down and sleep with me
Fall in too deep with me
Child

Every green mile
Has a blue sky to lean on
A moon rising see saw
For whence the sun dies
Where every last creature created is equal
And each ageing tree becomes equally wise
No need for disguise
For the secrets we keep
Are released to the wild
Every nightfall we sleep
While seasons may pass
We entitle their sweep
To reprise the enlighten of childlike belief
Fly our kites in the breeze
To delight as they tease
Every branch that we glance
At the height of the trees
Make balloon of the moon
And confetti of stars
As we bid the resume
Of a heavenly dance
With our hearts on our sleeves
And our chests at full mast
We are halfway between
Very end and the start
Where the pathway leads
Remains a mystery
The rest will, one fine day, be ancient history

Breathe with me
Blissfully
Share this great victory
Love running through every vein of our stitchery
Lay down and sleep with me
Fall in too deep with me
Rise with wide eyes
Like a child
While I wake every star in your smile
Where our brave hearts are free to run wild
With each beat of me
Dream with me
Child
