The Great Unknown - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


All lovers in the night
Look up and see the dawn
Reach out into the light
Before you travel on
All you have to do is smile for me
Lonely days will disappear

All lovers of the world
We thought we had it all
Reach out and touch someone
Across the great unknown

All you have to do is smile for me
Lonely nights will disappear

Promises are soon forgotten
Watch them falling one by one
Nothing stays the same forever
See the years go on and on they fly

We'll wait for the day
Changing our ways
All over the world
Reach out for someone
All over the world

All you have to do is smile for me
Lonely nights will disappear
All of my life

Lovers of the world...
