I Know Him By Heart

Vonda Shepard

There's a secret path I follow,
To a place no one can find;
Where I meet my perfect someone,
I've kept hidden in my mind:

Where my heart makes my decisions,
'Till my dream becomes a vision;
And the love I feel,
Makes him real someday...

'Cause I know he's out there somewhere,
Just beyond my reach;
Though I've never really touched him,
Or ever heard him speak:

Though we've never been together,
We've never been apart;
No we've never met,
Haven't found him yet,
But I know him by heart.

* * * * *

Am I living in an illusion?
Wanting something I can't see?
If I compromise, I'd be living lies,
Pretending love's not meant to be...

'Cause I know my heart's worth saving,
And I know that he'll be waiting;
So I'll hold on,
And I'll stay strong, 'till then...

'Cause I know he's out there somewhere,
Just beyond my reach;
Though I've never really touched him,
Or ever heard him speak:

Though we've never been together,
We've never been apart;
No we've never met,
Haven't found him yet,
But I know him by heart.

No we've never met,
Haven't found him yet,
But I know him by heart.
