by Eva Cassidy

I love all the songs from the album ‘Songbird’ but this one especially speaks of my memories of my relationship with my mother. Knowing how Eva died of cancer also touches me all the more.

Midnights in winter
The glowing fire
Lights up your face in orange and gold
I see your sweet smile
Shine through the darkness
Its line is etched in my memory
So I’d know you by heart

Mornings in April
Sharing our secrets
We’d walk until the morning was gone
We were like children
Laughing for hours
The joy you gave me lives on and on
’Cause I know you by heart

I still hear your voice
On warm summer nights
Whispering like the wind
Oh oh oh oh

You left in autumn
The leaves were turning
I walked down roads of orange and gold
I saw your sweet smile
I heard your laughter
You’re still here beside me every day
’Cause I know you by heart

’Cause I know you by heart
