Only A Heartbeat
T'Pau Lyrics


There's a million ways and gloried days to take your breath away
But you can't see what's taking place
All you know is that the sun will set and the sun will rise
And everything will be alright

There's a cry in the dark and it comes from way across the world tonight
It's the sound of a drum that beats alone and knows what is right
And from Tiananmen to Timisoara
Across this land
(And they took the wall away) And they took the wall away
You see step by step it came down again
A chain reaction, a solemn vow
Who in the world can stop this now?

Lift your head to a new day okay
Dawn of the start of a whole new way
Hold on to the meaning of the word
And when you know it's only gonna be a question of morality
It's only a heartbeat away

You can call for justice, we're free to be a part
And they lip service to it all
Cause you see that half the world is overcome
The other half is deaf is dumb
Now you will hear them call

(And they took the wall away) And they took the wall away
You see brick by brick it came down again
A chain reaction, a solemn vow
Who in the world can stop this now?

Lift your head to a new day okay
Dawn of the start of a whole new way
Hold on to the meaning of the word
And when you know it's only gonna be a question of morality
It's only a heartbeat away (only a heartbeat away)

Hold on to your home
And say oh-woah-woah-woah (you-lay-lay-lay)
Lift your head and there's a brand new day
It's only a heartbeat away

So don't sacrify the great divide
We are here to testify

Lift your head to a new day okay
Dawn of the start of a whole new way
Hold on to the meaning of the word (hold on to the meaning of the word)
And when you know it's only gonna be a question of morality
It's only a heartbeat away (only a heartbeat away)

Hold on to your home
And say oh-woah-woah-woah (you-lay-lay-lay)
Lift your head and face the day
It's only a heartbeat away (oh, yeah)

Lift your head to a new day okay
Dawn of the start of a another cool way
Hold on to the meaning of the word (hold on to the meaning of the word)
And when you know it's only gonna be a question of morality
It's only a heartbeat away (only a heartbeat away)

Hold on to your home
And say oh-woah-woah-woah (you-lay-lay-lay)
Lift your head and there's a brand new day
It's only a heartbeat away (oh, yeah)
