Lyrics

Looking back
Down that long road you have travelled
And I see
All the pain that you have suffered

A young girl waks on ancient sand
Desert flower in her hand
Barefoot on the red heartland
Innocence makes few demands

Heart and soul
My soul sister
Got that special part of me
Such sweet love
And deep devotion
Who would tame what's wild and free?

Here we are
In this crazy, crazy world
Circumstance
Can lead you on to desperation
Love can save the weary heart
Or it can tear us all apart
I would rather take that chance
Than to never trust again

Heart and soul
My soul sister
Got that special part of me
Such sweet love and deep devotion
Who would tame what's wild and free?

Looking forward
Down that long road we might travel
And I see
All the joy that is recovered
See the young boy by the river side
He throws a stick to the other side
It carries with the rising tide
Sometimes we might reach too high

Heart and soul
My soul sister
Got that special part of me
Such sweet love and deep devotion
Who would tame what's wild and free?

Loving heart so wild and free
Who could chance what's wild and free?
