Echoes in the Dark (Uriah Heep)

I have heard the echoes in the dark Dim and distant voices of the past And I've seen so far into the night And lingered in the land of no light Far beyond the Shrouded hours of dawn Through the mist Of daybreak I was borne But the day was Clouded still by night Leaving me in the land of no light Though I'd love to Say hello to you You might have to wait awhile To say goodbye For it must end as it began And then start again The day of darkness Comes to every man And lingers while he Reaches out his hand And he cannot know how it will end Till he finds out if he has a friend A friend
