Lyrics

Original

What happens to a heart when love breaks? 
Does it fade into a shadow of remorse, when it aches? 
Or can it fly to the sky like a bird, 
Lighter than ever, stronger too 
Oh I think a heart always learns to come through.

We were like children lost in our own dream 
We never knew love's a garden and hard to grow 
We thought the magic would lead us upstream 
But we fell, it's not our fault, it's how currents flow

Even though it's hard to know you are leaving this picture 
You remain another memory of summer when we loved 
Even the winter cold feels warm 
Shining with light from all I kept inside from you 
That is how the heart can live on and on

Long Version

What happens to a heart when love breaks? 
Does it fade into a shadow of remorse, when it aches? 
Or can it fly to the sky like a bird, 
Lighter than ever, stronger too 
Oh I think a heart always learns to come through.

We were like children lost in our own dream 
We never knew love's a garden and hard to grow 
We thought the magic would lead us upstream 
But we fell, it's not our fault, it's how currents flow

Even though it's hard to know you are leaving this picture 
You remain another memory of summer when we loved 
Even the winter cold feels warm 
Shining with light from all I kept inside from you 
That is how the heart can live on and on

What happens to a heart when love ends? 
Does it fade into a shadow of remorse, when it bends? 
Or can it fly to the sky like a bird, 
Lighter than ever, stronger too 
Oh I think a heart always learns to come through.

Where do the teardrops go when they trap?
Do they follow other raindrops and return to the sky?
Even a sparrow with broken wings,
Looks at the sun and finds us all
Oh I think a heart always learns to be strong.

Where did the sorrow go?
Who gave me back the sun?
I don't know
Opening my eyes, I see blue skies...
