Westlife - Poet's Heart Lyrics

When did I lose my voice?
When did I make the choice to be
living so easy in the quiet?
Too much of restless thinking
But they say time is everything.
You came and opened up the silence.

So I lie awake,
writing symphonies trapped inside me,
But now I know, what you give to me,
I'm living with the poet's heart, heart

Now all the lights turned on and I'm never gonna stop
As the words come out, it's because you lit the spark.
You're a priceless, timeless, precious work of art.
Though everywhere you are,
I'm living with the poet's heart.

Whisper to me again
You (fall) from my ears straight to my pen,
How did you see right through?
It's like you're always new.

So I lie awake
writing symphonies, you awoken me
Cause now I know, what you sing to me,
I'm living with the poet's heart, heart.

Then all the lights turned on and I'm never gonna stop
And as the words come out, it's because you lit the spark.
You're a priceless, timeless, precious work of art.
Though everywhere you are,
I'm living with the poet's heart

Oh, oh
So let's lie awake, making history
Yeah, you and me
Cause now we know,
so won't you sing to me,
our melody,

Now all the lights turned on and I'm never gonna stop
As the words come out, it's because you lit the spark.
You're a priceless, timeless, precious work of art.
Though everywhere you are,
I'm living with the poet's heart, heart, heart, heart

Now my feet won't touch the ground,
Yeah, we're flying high homeward bound
Take my hand, yeah, just like that.
We'll keep riding, riding
Don't look back, don't look back,
no, no...

  7. Mary J

  8. Paul Andre Tadiar

    God will reunite Westlife in a his perfect time, the time when the only one they need is each other...

    Uti Adjeran

    Paul Andre Tadiar They'll be back with Five or the Four member.

    Megan McKnight

    I feel like it will be 5 members since Shane in 2012 said he would never rule out letting Brian back in, and Nicky and Kian kind of struggle singing lead,plus I've noticed how Kian and Nicky have not once complained about not singing lead the entire 5 to 6 years Brian was with the group. Plus Brian would of stayed until the very end of the group if they would of taken a break in 2004 which they should of done. Plus Brian is the frontman and one of the leads. Also westlife would not have existed in 1998-2004 if the group was not formed with 5 members to start off with so Brian plays a very important part in the formation of westlife. because brian just needed a break from making music. So I get the feeling westlife will be back 5 members again at some point.

    There is a reason the group was formed with 5 members in the first place and not four its meant to be 5 guys sharing the fame&money. The other four from 2004-2012 just got too use to singing as a 4 member group that they forgot that they originally use to have 5 members and that Brian deserves credit for the 5 to 6 years of the group's because westlife would not have existed the first 5 to 6 years if the group was not formed with Brian in it as one of the leads and the frontman. So I get the very strong feeling it will be back to 5 members when the group comes back.

    Megan McKnight

    Plus Brian never said that he would not be back after he got different interests off his mind

    I know every generation says that there favourite bands were the best of there time. But Westlife were the best boyband ever, most people don't know that they did write there own songs. I really miss this band alot, they actually made my life bearable and worth living for when I was younger. It's thanks to them that I'm here to day and even though their not together anymore, i have their albums to listen too. Westlife till the end of time xxx

    Christie Smith

    I agree, these boys songs got me through my teen years, I knew no matter what happened I always had the best favourite band, these were the loves that came without warning.

  13. Christie Smith

    Miss you more each day boys, please come back one day.

  32. Kasey Simkins

    Im forever arguing with school mates about westlife. i know these guys are amazing, but people are constantly putting them down, i adore westlife and i dont care what people think. the truth is- these people are to shallow to even give westlife a chance, because most the people saying theyre rubbish, havnt ever listened to their music properly, Complete IDIOTS.

  33. Twinkle D

    I love you Westlife, your the Best of all the Best....:)

  34. Sallie Planty

    @changedbyatf2003 I'm not really bearing any grudges, I'm just saddened by the number of these views. This really incredible group deserves more. Yah! I'd love to go see them in the UK this year, but I think it'd cost a little more than my bank account will allow. LOL! Guess I'll have to settle for seeing their performances via the internet....

  35. changedbyatf2003

    @cqsallie hey. think about it. they came to the US with Swear it Again but by the time they got here we had backstreet boys and NSYNC were chart-topping with sub-successful boy bands (BBMak, O-Town, etc.). The US just wasn't having it. So, they stayed in the UK. Then they got married, had kids in the UK. We couldn't expect them to dislodge their families for a 2nd attempt to do what already failed once. I hold no grudges. So I'm going to see them in the UK this year. U should too

  36. a sasing's creed

    @khebzrock1 my god.. ur so late... it was still last 2004 when brian mcfadden decided to split up from the band.. ^_^

  37. nicky quinio

    westlife ever!!!!!!!!

  38. alexden2000

    love it its better than lighthouse more song my lovable westlife...

  39. Sallie Planty

    I'm asking myself the same question. How can they break up when they're just getting better and better? Solution: For reasons unknown to me and the rest of US fans, they haven't broken into the US charts. Why? I tend to think that it's because their manager is a dolt! Hey! I love ya, Louie, but you haven't been doing right by these guys in the states! Westlife needs a states-side manager and then all hell'd break loose....

  43. Dannie C

  44. Monica ianni guimaraes camargo

    Esses rapazes são igual a um vinho de excelente qualidade. Quanto mais velho, melhor. Theys are the best! Ilove you Westlife!

  45. Engr. T2

    nice song.....

  46. aizat27

    This is a good song. I don't mind Lighthouse as a single. But this song reminds me of Coldplay. How can they break up when they keep improving their music & songs? I'm sure this kind of song would achieve top spot in any chart.

  47. Pararparaver

    personally I prefer light house - it has more elements such as the soft starts, then the ris which defined Westlife - which I think it's absolutely essential considering it's 'one last shot'. But releasing this as a b side is a fantastic compliment to lighthouse....

  48. Liverpool .Girl

    does anyone have the mp3 they cansend me pls

  49. Joanna Louise

    @westlife4life I've made my own video with the RIGHT lyrics lol

  53. kelly kahyan

    love the song..u lads are always the best!! :D

  54. Joanna Louise

    Those lyrics are totally wrong!!!

  55. solovinit

    I absolutely agree, everyone's been saying that this is better than lighthouse. Didn't believe it, but once I heard it, it's hard to deny. Lighthouse is AMAZING <3 but this is even better (': Well guess I can only expect the best, coming from the BEST BAND EVER, GO WESTLIFE! (:
