Hickory Heart

(Music and Lyrics by Sally Zito)

Hickory Heart, show me your secrets — how do you stay so strong?

Hickory Heart, how to absorb all the shock without breaking just bending?

Hickory Heart, I want your sweetness.

Let me hold on to the dark things until they rise.

Hickory Heart, how do you give to the end as they throw you to the fire?
