Forgiveness and reconciliation; especially where there has been an impasse or breakdown in communication between parent and child. In loving memory of my father, William Alexander Korns, born in Peking in 1920.

Forbidden City of the Heart

Words and Music by Michael Stillwater
A Great Wall of China surrounded you from the very start-
What memories entwined and so confounded you
That you made a Forbidden City of your heart?

Born outside of Peking
Three score and thirteen years ago
All your life were seeking
Something more than even you seemed to know
I wanted to know you as a little boy
When dragons flew patterns through your skies
Bright colored paper lanterns lit you up with joy,
Firecrackers danced before your eyes

A Great Wall of China surrounded you from the very start-
What secrets unwind as I find a clue to the jade gated
Forbidden City of your heart?

How could I even know you though at times I tried
To breach the wall that hid your heart from view?
A barricade of twisted dreams had wrapped you deep inside-
Did you ever hear a call to tunnel through?

It's hard to say what makes us exactly what we turn out to be
One thing is certain I know you wished that I would one day be free
To climb without a care across these red ramparts
And fly beyond this dynasty of feeling apart as we are in the

Forbidden City of the heart
Forbidden City of the heart
Pack your bags, we're leaving this place tonight
Hitch up the horses, gonna make it to the mountains by moonlight

We are leaving now this Forbidden City of the heart.
