Look Heart, No Hands by Randy Travis

I remember how it used to feel
Riding down old two mile hill
Tennis shoes up on the handle bars
Paying no mind to the passing cars
No doubts, no fears, just like when you are here
No chains, no strings, no fences, no walls
No net, just you to catch me when I fall
Look heart, no hands
It took a little time to get up to speed
To find the confidence and strength I'd need
To just let go and reach for the sky
You know sometimes it felt I could fly
No doubts, no fears, just like when you are here
No chains, no strings, no fences, no walls
No net, just you to catch me when I fall
Look heart, no hands
It doesn't take much
Just a smile or a touch
And I'm a kid again
I can almost feel that wind
No chains, no strings, no fences, no walls
No net, just you to catch me when I fall
Look heart, no hands
Look heart, no hands

Okay. Yes. How awesome it feels when you are able to return to person you used to be. Free. Full of love. To get that feeling back, that realization of pure joy at being alive is the greatest achievement we can strive for. I think the song mentions that all it takes is a smile or a laugh. I think he's implying that the smile or laugh comes from the person he loves. If you are getting such bliss from the smile of another person it won't last. It must come from yourself. But that's a small matter. The song is so good that it can be overlooked.

An excellent and insightful comment. I can say however that I love to see my kids smile. It lifts my heart. It is not nessessary for them to smile to lift my heart but it does the job. because I love them.

Yes. Good. Agreed. A smile from a kid is nice. It's frosting on the cake
