1. Song Of My Heart © 2010 Lorrie Newman Keating (BMI)
The year is 1970, and a 12-year old Lorrie is in another new school. One day, she meets a cute, blond-haired, blue-eyed boy named Joe Rose - and a 40-year friendship begins. But first, he was her first boyfriend, her first kiss, and then there's that little gold ring with the tiny red, dangling heart... It's amazing that, when I can't remember what I had for breakfast today, I can remember all that! This song was the first of several that Joe and I would write, one for the other. This was the first track I recorded for this album, and the entire feel of the song changed when Ed and Kelly began to play it with me. After 40+ years, it became a brand new song!

Lyrics

Why do I feel this way, more than any other day?
This different feeling is much more.
Tell me have you ever heard the beautiful sound of a singing bird?
The first time that I noticed was when you walked through my door

Pretty birds keep singing your beautiful song.
Me and my guy will walk slowly on.
Hand in hand, together we'll stand, and I hope we'll never part.
The song of the birds in the trees will be the song inside my heart.

The day he asked me to be his girl, well, I thought that I would die.
But I'm happy, and I know the reason why
My love for his is true, you see...it's just the way I want it
to be.
So pretty birds, keep singing in that blue sky above.

Pretty birds keep singing your beautiful song.
Me and my guy will walk slowly on.
Hand in hand, together we'll stand, and I hope we'll never part.
The song of the birds in the trees will be the song inside my heart.
