“Fill Your Heart” performed by David Bowie or Tiny Tim

Fill your heart with love today
Don’t play the game of time
Things that happened in the past
Only happened in your Mind
Only in your Mind, ah forget your Mind
And you’ll be free-yeah
The writing’s n the wall
Free-yeah And you can know it all
If you choose. Just remember
Lovers never lose
‘Cause they are Free of thoughts unpure
And of thoughts unkind
Gentleness clears the soul
Love cleans the mind
And makes it Free
Free

 

Oh happiness is happening
Dragons have been bled
Gentleness is everywhere
Fear’s just in your Head
Only in your Head
Fear is in your Head
Only in your Head
So Forget your Head
And you’ll be free
The writing’s on the wall
Free-yeah, And you can know it all
If you choose. Just remember
Lovers never lose
‘Cause they are free of thoughts unpure
And of thoughts unkind
Gentleness clears the soul
Love will clean your mind
And make you Free!

 

Free-yeah Yeah-yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah
Free-yeah Yeah-yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah
Free-yeah Yeah-yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah
Free-yeah Yeah-yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah
Free-yeah

 

“Fill Your Heart” is a happy song that is sprightly delivered by David Bowie. He even rendered the lyrics of the song in a comical way just like you would hear in animated musical films. So, why would you want it played or sung in a funeral service? It is just right for such an occasion especially if you are holding a modern version of a funeral service that celebrates life. As a matter of fact, this modern modification of a funeral service called “Celebration of Life” is getting popular nowadays. In this song, Bowie says it is wiser to fill your heart with love today, and not to worry about what would happen tomorrow. You will enjoy freedom if you will let go of your worries and your losses. He says “Lovers never lose.” These words may not be palatable to those who have just lost a loved one, yet in time, they will realize that life goes on and the memories of their beloved will remain even after a long time. In that sense, they never lost their loved one. The song also offers some measures of comfort with the words; “Fear is only in your head. So forget your head and you’ll be free.” This song was written by Biff Rose and Paul Williams and sung by David Bowie and Tiny Tim on the LP “Hunky Dory.” If you are searching for songs like these, please visit www.songmeanings.net.
