Between Your Heart and Mine

Posted Dec 20 2012 10:12am

The song, “Between Your Heart and Mine” was written and performed by Gregory Todd is a Nashville,Tennessee country musician and that’s about all I’ve been able to find out about him.  The song shows up in many places on the internet but Mr. Todd’s website offers little other information.  You can visit it here http://www.gregorytodd.com/Home_Page_DVPA.php and listen to some of his other songs as well.

“Between Your Heart and Mine” is a touching song and the story that many of us who have had transplants have already lived.  Please take the time to listen to it…close your eyes, listen, remember and give thanks.  This Christmas is special for those who have had transplants and who are getting them right now, but there are thousands of others still waiting.  Please say a little prayer for them while you enjoy Mr. Todd’s wonderful song. You can click on the link above to listen to the song.  The lyrics are below.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone.

Between Your Heart and Mine

As the doctors took their places
I could see my kids and wife
Blowing kisses for good luck, not goodbye

Seven months with just one question
Then you answered with your life
You had one foot crossing heaven
I was one small breath behind

But you saved me when you gave me
The miracle I needed to survive
Now we both can go on
Between your heart and mine

Between your heart and mine
I’ll live a life worth living
I’ll take what I’ve been given
And pass it down the line

I’ll cherish every moment
Then breathe it in and hold in for the rest of my life
Between your heart and mine

I heard what happened late that night
Drinker driving through the light
He drove your hopes and dreams right to the ground

Just seventeen, you went too soon
But on my life I swear to you
Each morning when I wake up, I’ll make sure you’re smiling down

Cause you saved me when you gave me
The miracle I needed now it’s beating deep inside
So we both can go on
Between your heart and mine

I’ve been praying for your family
Hoping one day comes around
When I can let them know their boy is safe and sound
Between your heart and mine

And that I’ll live a life worth living
I’ll take what I’ve been given and pass it down the line
I’ll cherish every moment
Then breathe it in and hold it for the rest of my life
I’ll keep this feeling for the rest of my life
Between your heart and mine

You may comment in the space provided or email your thoughts to me at bob@baronson.org. And – please spread the word about the immediate need for more organ donors. There is nothing you can do that is of greater importance. If you convince one person to be an organ and tissue donor you may save or positively affect over 60 lives. Some of those lives may be people you know and love.

Please view our video “Thank You From the Bottom of my Donor’s heart” on This video was produced to promote organ donation so it is free and no permission is needed for its use.

If you want to spread the word personally about organ donation, we have another PowerPoint slide show for your use free and without permission. Just go to and click on “Life Pass It On” on the left side of the screen and then just follow the directions. This is NOT a stand-alone show; it needs a presenter but is professionally produced and factually sound. If you decide to use the show I will send you a free copy of my e-book, “How to Get a Standing “O” that will help you with presentation skills. Just write to bob@baronson.org and usually you will get a copy the same day.

Also…there is more information on this blog site about other donation/transplantation issues. Additionally we would love to have you join our Facebook group, Organ Transplant Initiative The more members we get the greater our clout with decision makers.
