Surrender What My Heart is Due

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 
Return them to me, my pearls 
from around my heart they once wrapped 
I am not like other girls 
for without them my heart is trapped 
 

From around my heart they once wrapped 
as sacred Rosary beads 
For without them my heart is trapped 
I gave them to you as seeds 
 
As sacred Rosary beads 
each one represents a prayer 
I gave them to you as seeds 
to become their only bearer 
 
Each one represents a prayer 
held for every year I live 
To become their only bearer 
these gifts to you I did give 
 
Held for every year I live 
lost prayers, which cannot be heard 
These gifts to you I did give 
These you took from me without word 
 
Lost prayers, which cannot be heard 
long blocked from being granted 
These you took from me without word 
my sense of self now scanted 
 
Long blocked from being granted 
buried deep in some unknown ground 
My sense of self now scanted 
rummaging ever to be found 
 
Buried deep in some unknown ground 
crying out far for my heart 
Rummaging ever to be found 
only just falling apart 
 
Crying out far for my heart 
refusing to give up the fight 
Only just falling apart 
hoping you will do what is right 
 
Refusing to give up the fight 
my sacred heirlooms will pray 
hoping you will do what is right 
Dig them up from whence they lay 
 
My sacred heirlooms will pray 
your crisis of conscience will wake 
Dig them up from whence they lay 
All my heart wants is not to ache 
 
Your crisis of conscience will wake 
for my jewels are mine to keep 
All my heart wants is not to ache 
so what they sow, it may reap 
 
For my jewels are mine to keep 
That is all I wanted from you 
So what they sow, it may reap 
surrender what my heart is due 
 
That is all I wanted from you 
I am not like other girls 
Surrender what my heart is due 
Please, return them to me, my pearls
