After a few weeks of a silent meditation workshop , afterwards, I sat on the train on the way home and this song poured out of me onto the paper ... 

This little heart.  

Words and Music by Tony Chapman 1990. Copyrighted.

Inst. G,  C,  F, C, F,   Am7-5,   G

G                                                     G+

this little heart was a quiet one, now its fallen into the sun,

D                (D4) Em                       F      (F2)                Bb (with #4)    B6

running so fast, beating so loud, listening for your voice                  in the crowd

Fm9                   Am7      D4   D    G

this little heart       is      set on you


this little heart is a raging bull, a monsoon season when the reservoir's full

deaf to my plead1ng, cleverly reading

your name in brail, on the night sky stars 

this little heart is set on you         


G7         C                F                 Bb                  F            C 

     and Cupid hesitates, calculates, draws back his bow

 C                      F              Bb          Eb       D 

making no demands he releases his arrow ….


This little heart makes its needs known

Wants me up there with you on your golden throne

riding the spiral of your D.N.A. surfing the breakers of your breath's wave

this little heart, my heart's set on you


Inst. As whole verse….


this little is a truthful one, gazell and cheeta's celebratory run

delinquant dance of some glamourous fish

from steel hook to porcelain dish

this little heart, my heart's set on you 


and you throw to me a smile like salt over your shoulder as you go

making no demands you release your arrow


this little heart is open to you, an unlatched window summer steps through 

Lazarus rising from night into day, joyful Adam rising out of the clay

just like the sun, my heart's set on you 

                         Inst. G,  C,  F, C, F,   Am7-5,   G

just like the sun,
