Week 19 – Between Your Heart And Mine (A Duet)

A good friend of mine is getting married at the end of the year, and she asked Carol and myself to sing a couple of songs at her banquet. I said, of course we’d be happy to perform for her.

I’ve been toying with the idea of writing a wedding duet for a while – you know, something along the lines of “Endless Love” or “I’ve Finally Found Someone” – and I decided to try it this week. So this is my first ever duet.

This song is inspired by the saying: “No words are necessary between two loving hearts.”

There are two ways to interpret the title, “Between Your Heart And Mine”, something special shared between two people in love, or something that forces them apart. I chose the former, of course.

I didn’t actually want to make obvious references to marriage or a wedding in the lyrics, as I wanted this song to apply to any couple in love.

And… you’ll see that I got Carol to sing with me on this video, so this is her YouTube debut! *clap clap*

Between Your Heart and Mine
© Music and Lyrics by Marcel Lee Pereira, 10 Sept, 2010

The spaces of my heart are filled with you
And I’m overflowing
Right from the very start I already knew
You’re the spring in my feet

I’ll hold you close like a secret for two
And I’m tellin’ the world
You showed me love with your smile so true
You’re all I need

Now I’ve found my place
It’s here in your embrace

Chorus
Between your heart and mine
No words are spoken
The look in your eyes
Spells forever
Between your heart and mine
Is a path we’ve chosen
The rest of our lives
Spent together

You make me bite my lips, you light up my fire
Just by being you don’t even have to try
You are the beat in my drum, and the reason I’m dancing
I’d wait another lifetime to have you by my side

Nothing can come between (Nothing can come between)
Nothing can come between (Nothing can come between)
Nothing can come between (Nothing can come between)
Your heart and mine

Chorus
Between your heart and mine
No words are spoken
The look in your eyes
Spells forever
Between your heart and mine
Is a path we’ve chosen
The rest of our lives
Spent together
