I heard it sound from the valleys low
I heard it from mountaintops covered in snow
I heard it rise from the oceans deep
I heard it echo off canyon walls steep

What'd you hear?
A beautiful sound
How'd it sound?
It sounded like this

(Beautiful sound)

As it echoed in my ears
My face glistened damp with the sheen of my tears
As I drew near to your side
I knew it was useless to flee or to hide

There is a sound ringing out day and night
It fills up each shadow on earth with its light
I felt the sound fill my innards and limbs
I felt it watching me think from within

What'd it see?
Desire split in thirds
How'd it feel?
The strain was immense

These are the times that test all our bonds
Our mutual will is all twisted and stretched
But still the sound, the notes and the chords
Reside in our chests where they've been deeply etched

My soul and spirit are apart
My bones and my marrow, divided as well
And what the eye that sees me sees
Are pieces of body and fractions of self

What'd you hear?
How'd it sound?
