  • Who can say where the road goes
    Where the day flows, only time
    And who can say if your love grows
    As your heart chose, only time

    Who can say why your heart sighs
    As your love flies, only time
    And who can say why your heart cries
    When your love lies, only time

    Who can say when the roads meet
    That love might be in your heart
    And who can say when the day sleeps
    If the night keeps all your heart
    Night keeps all your heart

    Who can say if your love grows
    As your heart chose, only time
    And who can say where the road goes
    Where the day flows, only time

    Who knows? Only time
    Who knows? Only time Writer/s: Enya, Nicky Ryan, Roma Shane Ryan

  • Guy from Woodinville, WaI, along with a million others, love Enya's rich, atmospheric style. Her production is as important as her song writing. This song is the prinnacle. I loved Orinico Flow as an oddity long before I learned that it too was recorded by Enya. As I recall, this was also featured on the "Friends" tv show when Chandler was trying to relax in the tub after a stressful day.
  • Daniel from Jacksonville, Fli first heard this song on "viva la bam" don vito dropped bam's hummer down a revine and they started playin this song as a flash back type deal as they were showing the "best times" in his hummer...its a good song
