I'm playing my guitar while my sister bangs the jar
The glass sets up a sound like people laughing
It's going to my brain and it's easing all my pain
I must hear this sound again 'cause time is passing
Mmm.
I'm walking by the sea and the shingle sings for me
The crabs are swimming down among the starfish
The rocks all clatter down and the seagulls fly around
But the whole trip rubs it in that time is passing, passing
Find it, I got to hear it all again
My heart has heard the sound of harmony
Blind to it, as my tears fall again
It's only by the music I'll be free
There's something in the whisper of the trees
Millions hear it, still they can't believe
There are echoes of it splashing in the waves
As an empire of dead men leave their graves
Don't listen to people talk, don't listen to 'em selling souls
Don't listen to me or words from men above
Don't hear it in your needs and don't hear it in your greeds
Just hear it in the sound of time a-passing
Find it, I got to hear it all again
My heart has heard the sound of harmony
Blind to it, as my tears fall again
It's only by the music I'll be free
