Only Time
Enya Lyrics

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

Ee Ren sweet.
This beautiful song reminds me how Francis Light was very guarded with his heart.
In his youth, girls would come his way to socialize and even flirt with him but despite his friendliness and playfulness, he would never give his heart to anyone.

Thank you, Enya. This beautiful song brings back so many memories of him, Francis Light.
His happiness, when he first fell in love.
His joy, when he got married.
His sorrow and despair, when he lost his spouse and his first born baby, as she perished during childbirth.
So much happened to him in the first 15 years of his life...
During of which, he was identified by a different name. A name that was given by his father. He hated that name as he was named after his own father.
He returns to England, after he lost his spouse, his baby and his post with the British Navy .
Only his dear mother and his aunty knows about these sadness in his heart...🌹
Shortly after that, his father suddenly died in a freak accident while counting the lock, stock and barrel.
That event brought so much emotional relief to Francis, his mother and his aunty.
Soon after that, he changed his name and babtise himself as Francis Light.
His mother, aunty and granduncle William Negus were his witnesses.

My mother played this song for me when I was a child. She said it was the only thing that would make me stop crying. I'm 19 now, there's something more to this song for me, just hits different
