The Human Heart Lyrics

Broadway production (1990)
Once on This Island the Musical - The Human Heart Lyrics

(Music by Stephen Flaherty and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens)

[ERZULIE]
The courage of a dreamer
The innocence of youth
The failures and the foolishness
That lead us to the truth
[ERZULIE]
The hopes that
Make us happy
[STORYTELLERS]
The hopes that
Make us happy
[ERZULIE]
The hopes that
Don't come true
And all the love
There ever was
[STORYTELLERS]
And all the love
There ever was
[ERZULIE]
I see this all
In you
You are part
Part of the
Human heart
[STORYTELLERS]
You are part
Part of the
Human heart
[ERZULIE]
You are part
[STORYTELLER]
You are part
[ERZULIE, STORYTELLERS]
You are part
[ERZULIE]
Of all who took the journey
And managed to endure
The ones who knew such tenderness
The ones who felt so sure
[ERZULIE]
The ones who
Came before you
[STORYTELLERS]
The ones who
Came before you
[ERZULIE]
The others yet
To come
And those who
You will teach
It to
[STORYTELLERS]
And those who
You will teach
It to
[ERZULIE]
And those you
Learned it from
You are part
Part of the
Human heart
[STORYTELLERS]
You are part
Part of the
Human heart
[ERZULIE]
You are part
[STORYTELLER]
You are part
[ERZULIE, STORYTELLERS]
You are part
[ERZULIE]
This is the gift I give
Through your love you'll live
Forever...
[ERZULIE]
Forever
[STORYTELLERS]
You are part
Part of the
Human heart
Forever
[ERZULIE]
You are part
[STORYTELLER]
You are part
[ERZULIE, STORYTELLERS]
You are part
Tonight
Tonight
[ERZULIE]
Part of the human...
[ERZULIE, STORYTELLERS]
Heart.
