  • Strange things are happening everyday
    I hear the music up above my head
    Oh the side of my heart has left me again
    I hear music up above

    Secrets are written in the sky
    It looks like I've lost the love I've never found
    Tho the sound of hope has left me again
    I hear music up above

    Standing in the my broken heart all night long
    Dark and silky like a friend where love wore off
    Looking for the land that's hidden in the cross
    Find it's lost

    I know, I love you too much
    I'll go on alone, to get through

    I hear Rosetta singing in the night
    Echoes of light that shine like stars after they're gone
    And tonight, she's my guide as I go on alone
    With the music above Writer/s: SAM PHILLIPS
