i heard it lyrics – justin hayward

i was driving down a lonely highway
as the sun went down
i heard a voice right beside me saying
why don’t you turn around
why don’t you stop – feel the wonder
listen to the sound
well i heard it – i heard it
i heard it – i heard it

have you listened to the bell at midnight
on the still night air
it sets you dreaming of the strangest journey
across the great somewhere
then you start the brave adventure
dreams without a care
well i heard it – i heard it
i heard it – i heard it

like leaves borne on the wind
our words will fade and die
only to return
as new life by and by
the p*ssions that we feel
like lovers wild and free
are footsteps on the sand
holding back the mighty sea
there’s a place – a secret garden
and when the day is done
we lie among the gr*ss and flowers
underneath the sun
as we look up the sky is turning
but with the earth we’re one
well i heard it – i heard it
i heard it – i heard it

the p*ssions that we feel
like lovers wild and free
are footsteps on the sand
holding back the mighty sea
there’s a voice – that calls us onwards
down the lonely street
and when we tread the path no longer
the circle is complete
a million souls scream in anguish
and others rest in sleep
