Harmonious Vibes, Come from the Heart

Sometimes I’m a music person… sometimes it’s the lyrics. I just love Kathy Mattea’s simple lyrics here.

Also, I love the way art and love are pretty much the same thing. As someone who feels love, art, and creativity are intertwined, this country oldie is a creativity affirmation of sorts… and how I’m starting my week off ♥


Come From The Heart

by Kathy Mattea
My daddy told me when I was a young girl
A lesson he learned, it was a long time ago
If you want to have someone to hold onto
You’re gonna have to learn to let go
You got to sing like you don’t need the money
Love like you’ll never get hurt
You got to dance like nobody’s watchin’
It’s gotta come from the heart
If you want it to work
Now here is the one thing I keep forgettin’
When everything is falling apart
In life as in love, you know I need to remember
There’s such a thing as trying too hard
You got to sing like you don’t need the money
Love like you’ll never get hurt
You got to dance like nobody’s watchin’
It’s gotta come from the heart
If you want it to work
You got to sing sometimes like you don’t need the money
Love sometimes like you’ll never get hurt
You got to dance, dance, dance like nobody’s watchin’
It’s gotta come from the heart if you want it to work
