She heard a voice above her, but could not make out the words.
Still she could hear no response above the voice of the sea.
Much later, in the middle of the night, she heard a strange sound from high above her head.
The sound of heavy steps was heard above his head.
He had raised his voice a bit so that it could be heard clearly above the music.
He had to speak up to be heard above the music coming through the open windows.
She didn't seem to hear him above the noise of the street.
I could still hear the piano music above my head.
Like him she had to raise her voice to be heard above the wind.
He could barely hear her voice above the night wind.
