Enya: Only Time (plus Jean-Claude Van Damme's epic split)

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


Wikipedia: Only Time
"Only Time" is a song composed and recorded by Irish singer Enya, first released in November 2000. The release of this single coincided with the release of the album A Day Without Rain. In 2001 "Only Time" was released again as a remix. The track was remixed by the Swiss American Federation (S.A.F.) (Christian B. and Marc Dold) with a final remix by Enya's producer, Nicky Ryan. Enya donated the earnings from the sale of that single to the Uniform Firefighters Association's Widows' and Children's Fund to help the families of fire fighters in the aftermath of 9/11.[1] The song was also featured in the soundtrack of the motion picture Sweet November. To date, "Only Time" is Enya's biggest solo hit in the United States, where it peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart[2] and #1 on the adult contemporary chart.

During the summer of 2001, NBC used the song in commercials to promote Friends, which ended its season on a cliffhanger. The exposure helped the song gain familiarity and increased radio play. As a result, the song became Enya's first top 40 radio hit in 12 years. The song also appeared on an episode of Viva La Bam that was played in the montage of Bam Margera's hummer after it was thrown off the cliff by Don Vito.[citation needed] In November 13th, 2013 it was part of the Volvo Trucks campaign featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme.
