New Website: My Play List: 45Minutes of Beautiful Relaxing Music With Alluring Pictures! Relaxation Music & Beautiful Pictures Music by Mantovani Orchestra! 1) PERCY FAITH lyrics – Song From Moulin Rouge (Where Is Your Heart) “Song From Moulin Rouge (Where Is Your Heart)” (Words by William Engvick and Music by Georges Aurie) Whenever we kiss I worry and wonder Your lips may be near But where is your heart It’s always like this I worry and wonder You’re close to me here But where is your heart It’s a sad thing to realize That you’ve a heart that never melts When we kiss, do you close your eyes Pretending that I’m someone else You must break the spell This cloud that I’m under So please won’t you tell Darling, where is your heart? 2) Bobby Darin – Beyond the Sea Lyrics Somewhere beyond the sea, Somewhere, waiting for me, My lover stands on golden sands And watches the ships that go sailing; Somewhere beyond the sea, She’s there watching for me. If I could fly like birds on high, Then straight to her arms I’d go sailing. It’s far beyond a star, It’s near beyond the moon, I know beyond a doubt My heart will lead me there soon. We’ll meet beyond the shore, We’ll kiss just as before. Happy we’ll be beyond the sea, And never again I’ll go sailing!

    @jakatom – There’s plenty of other videos w/o the One True God of the Bible my friend. Perhaps you’re comment indicates that you are not so confident in your unbelief of the Creator God. Remember that He loves you so much that He sent His Son to die for you so that you wouldn’t have to…

    I loved the pictures and the music in this video.
