How the Heart Approaches What It Yearns

ŠPaul Simon, released on One Trick Pony, 1980

.

In the blue light

Of the Belvedere Motel

Wondering as the television burns

How the heart approaches what it yearns

.

In a fever

I distinctly hear your voice

Emerging from a dream, the dream returns

How the heart approaches what it yearns

.

After the rain on the Interstate

The headlights slide past the moon

A bone-weary traveler

Waits by the side of the road

Where's he goin?

.

I dream we are lying on the top of a hill

And headlights slide past the moon

I fold in your arms

And your voice is the heat of the night

I'm on fire

.

In a phone booth

In some local bar and grill

Rehearsing what I'll say, my coin returns

How the heart approaches what it yearns

How the heart approaches what it yearns

.
