There's A Kind Of Hush
Engelbert Humperdinck Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

There's a kind of hush
All over the world tonight
All over the world you can hear
The sounds of lovers in love
You know what I mean

Just the two of us
And nobody else in sight
There's nobody else
And I'm feeling good
Just holding you tight

So listen very carefully, closer now
And you will see what I mean
It isn't a dream
The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear
I love you forever and ever

There's a kind of hush
All over the world tonight
All over the world you can hear
The sounds of lovers in love

So listen very carefully, closer now
And you will see what I mean
It isn't a dream
The only sound that you will hear
Is when I whisper in your ear
I love you forever and ever

There's a kind of hush
All over the world tonight
All over the world you can hear




The sounds of lovers in love
Of lovers in love, of lovers in love
