HOOFPRINTS ON MY HEART
(by Mary Ann Kennedy)

WE GOT HER BACK IN 63
A GIFT TO US FROM GRANDPA E
A SHETLAND SHE WAS DAPPLE GRAY
WITH A FLAXEN TAIL AND MANE

MY COUSINS AND MY SIS AND I
WE ALL TOOK OUR TURN TO RIDE
TILL WE OUTGREW THAT LITTLE MARE
IF THERE’S A HEAVEN SHE IS THERE

AND SHE LEFT HOOFPRINTS
ON MY HEART
HOOFPRINTS
ON MY HEART


SOME WERE SORREL SOME WERE GRAY

THE ONES I’VE LOVED ALONG THE WAY
ARABIAN A QUARTER HORSE
GOD WILLIN I’LL LOVE MANY MORE 

SO MANY YEARS HAVE COME AND GONE
MY LOVE FOR THEM IS JUST AS STRONG
IN THE SWEET BY AND BY
IN THAT GREAT PASTURE IN THE SKY

THEY ALL LEFT HOOFPRINTS
ON MY HEART
HOOFPRINTS….ON MY HEART

TO KINDRED SPIRITS EVERYWHERE
THIS KIND OF LOVE WE FEEL IS RARE
SOMEDAY TOGETHER WE WILL RIDE
AND THANK THE HORSES IN OUR LIVES

WHO LEFT HOOFPRINTS…ON OUR HEARTS

SOMEONE DECIDED TO EXAGGERATE

MIRROR MIRROR
(by Mary Ann Kennedy)

MIRROR MIRROR IN THE STALL
WHO’S THE FAIREST OF THEM ALL
WHEN I LOOK IN YOUR EYES WILL I SEE
THE REFLECTION OF A BETTER ME?

MIRROR I WANT TO UNDERSTAND
THE WORLD YOU SEE BUT I AM HUMAN
THANKFUL THAT YOU’RE MY EQUINE
IF I LEARN YOUR LANGUAGE WE’LL BE FINE

MIRROR MIRROR

AM I FAIR
AM I FORGIVING
PATIENT TOO
STIMULATING
DO I EMPATHIZE
OR DO I CRITICIZE
IF I CAN BE A BETTER ME
I’LL SEE A BETTER YOU

MIRROR MIRROR

MIRROR MIRROR TELL ME TRUE
I SEE ME WHEN I SEE YOU
AM I PATIENT AM I KIND
YOU’LL TELL ME
CAUSE YOU DON’T LIE…….HORSES DON’T LIE

MIRROR MIRROR IN THE STALL

THE ENERGY I’M PUTTIN OUT
YOU’LL SHOW ME THERE’S NO DOUBT

MIRROR MIRROR
I WANNA BE A BETTER ME
THAT’S THE ONLY WAY I’LL SEE A BETTER YOU

HEART IN YOUR HANDS
(by Mary Ann Kennedy)

RIDING MY HORSE ONE DAY
I HAD A FLASH AND I HEARD HIM SAY
IT’S MORE THAN LEATHER THAT YOU HOLD
WHEN YOU TAKE THE REINS YOU KNOW

*chorus
IT ISN’T SOME KIND OF MAGIC
BETWEEN ANIMAL AND MAN
MORE THAN A WORD OR A WHISPER
IT’S A DESIRE TO UNDERSTAND
YOU CAN DO IT TOO
IF YOU PUT YOUR HEART IN YOUR HANDS

WALKING MY DOG ONE DAY
IN A BUSY MIND I WAS MILES AWAY
THOSE EYES WERE LOOKIN STRAIGHT AT ME
WAITIN FOR SOME LOVE TO RUN THROUGH THAT LEASH

*chorus

TAKE THE TIME
THE TIME TO TOUCH
THEY DEMAND SO LITTLE
THEY GIVE SO MUCH

*MORE THAN A WORD OR A WHISPER
IT’S A DESIRE TO UNDERSTAND
YOU CAN DO IT TOO
I CAN DO IT TOO
YOU CAN DO IT TOO
IF YOU PUT YOUR HEART IN YOUR HANDS

THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE
(by Mary Ann Kennedy)

THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE
IS WHAT I UNDERSTAND
WHEN YOU REACH FOR ME
WITH A GENTLE HAND
ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER
WORDS AREN’T ENOUGH
IN THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE

V2
THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE
NOT SPOKEN WITH THE TONGUE
IT COMES FROM OUR HEARTS
IT’S HEARD BY EVERYONE
CROSSES ALL BORDERS
AROUND THE WORLD
THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE OF LOVE

*bridge
EVERY PERSON ..EVERY CREATURE
EVERY MOMENT WITH EVERY BREATH
WE CAN SEND A THOUGHT TO HEAL 
AND WHAT WE GIVE…. IS WHAT WE’LL GET

V3
 
I NEEDED SOMEONE
WHO COULD UNDERSTAND
THEN I SAW YOU
AND I REACHED OUT MY HAND
YOU DIDN’T  SAY A WORD
YOUR EYES SAID  ENOUGH
BECAUSE YOU SPOKE THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE

THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE
