Lyrics

how could any harm ever come to me
when you carry my heart in your hands?
how could any trial ever trouble me
while you carry my heart in your hands?

so much joy
would be unseen
if not for you
you brought to me
endless wonder
and i'm free to be myself
i walk away from the wishing well

how could your laughter keep from lifting me?
you carry my heart in your hands
how could ever after dare to dance with me
and carry my heart in your hands?

so much joy
is yet to be
it's here for you
inside of me
endless wonder
and we're free to be ourselves
we walk away from the wishing well

even as we speak these words aloud
even as we light a candle
even as the whole world watches
i feel proud
i feel free
i know you
you’re part of me
you are my hero and
i'm here to walk you down
any road you can dream about

how could your smile stop from saving me?
you carry my heart in your hands
trusting tomorrow will bring the best in me
oh carry my heart in your hands

i will carry your heart
you will carry my heart
we walk away from the wishing well
these hearts walk away from the wishing well
