Greatest Journey

Song written by Kim Wilde and Ricky Wilde. Duet with Glenn Gregory from Heaven 17. Fourth track on the album Come Out and Play. Kim has never performed this song live, but the intro of the song was used as the introduction theme for her concerts in spring 2011, during the Come Out and Play Tour.

Kim about ‘Greatest Journey’

I wrote this song together with my brother Ricky. We talked for a long time about things like the universe, spirituality and the meaning of life and came to the conclusion that this long journey can not simply come to an end when one leaves the world. Glenn Gregory of Heaven has 17 assisted us musically. Ricky and I are huge fans, we were ecstatic when he came into the studio to record the song with us. (1)

As you look in my eyes
And ask me what really matters
Is it hard to believe these words
Though your heart is shattered

An invisible truth
Is staring us back in the mirror
And whatever your pain
There is something out there that is bigger

Baby don’t you cry
Someday you will fly
We’re learning to believe
In the things we can’t see
A ticket for the greatest journey


There are times in your life
It seems that the answer is nearer
But as soon as you touch
It still doesn’t feel any clearer

So baby hold out your hand
We’ll travel this road together
And someday you’ll understand

So baby don’t you cry
Someday you will fly
Far away from here
Never be afraid again
You need a reason why
Confusion fills your eyes
We’re learning to believe
In the things we can’t see
A ticket for the greatest journey
