LyricsEdit

Do you know what noise awakes you

Every morning from your bed

A coming from the farthest hillside

A coming from inside your head


You have heard

You have heard the loudest sound

In this and every world you can think of


Louder than tanks on the highway

Louder than bombers in flight

Louder than noises of hatred

Dancing us from darkest night is the rhythm of love

Powered on by the beating of hearts


And did you know you had this power?

Drumming on it always stays

Never try to use it badly

Tunes of good are all it plays


You have heard

You have heard the loudest sound

In this and every world you can visit


Louder than tanks on the highway

Louder than bombers in flight

Louder than noises of hatred

Dancing us from darkest night is the rhythm of love

Powered on by the beating of hearts


For a heart without love is a song with no words

And a tune to which no one is listening

So your heart must give love and you'll find that

You shine like rain on the leaves you'll be glistening


You have heard

You have heard the loudest sound

In this and every world you can think of


Louder than thoughts of dictators

Louder than rattling swords

Louder than loading of rifles

Louder than screaming warlords

Louder than tanks on the highway

Louder than bombers in flight

Louder than noises of hatred

Dancing us from darkest night is the rhythm of love

Powered on by the beating of hearts
