Lyrics

I was born without a sound
I didn't cry so they put me in an iron lung
All alone and nearing death
But I heard Your heartbeat pulsing through my chest

Oh, You took my breath away
So I would learn to need You

My mother prayed I'd make a noise
If You do this for me, then You can have my son back
My father made a deal with God
And then he left me stranded in the arms of Love

Oh, You took my breath away
So I would learn to need You
To learn that I could never ever live without You
Oh, You take my breath away
You take my breath away, and all these years ago
I could feel You hide me in the shadow of Your wing
And straight away I loved You 'cause You were singing songs
That someday I would sing
That someday I would sing

There's a heartbeat
There's a heartbeat
There's a heartbeat
Can you hear it?
I can feel it

And I heard the sound of Your voice
I felt Your breath in my lungs
I felt the joy in my bones
And I started to sing, I started to sing

I felt the wonder of love
I knew the kindness of God
I joined with the angels above
And I started to sing, I started to sing for You
I started to sing for You

And I heard the sound of Your voice
I felt Your breath in my lungs
I felt the joy in my bones
And I started to sing, I started to sing

I felt the wonder of love
I knew the kindness of God
I joined with the angels above
And I started to sing
Forever I'll sing for You
