"Voices" as written by and Rick Nielsen....
You didn't know what you were lookin' for
Til you heard the voices in your ear

Hey, it's me again
Plain to see again
Please can I see you every day

I'm a fool again
I fell in love with you again
Please can I see you every day

You didn't know what you were lookin' for
Til you heard the voices in your ear
You didn't know what you were lookin' for
Til you heard the voices in your ear

Words don't come out right
I try to say it oh so right
I hope you understand my meaning

Hey, it's me again
I'm so in love with you again
Please can I see you every day

You didn't know what you were lookin' for
Til you heard the voices in your ear
You didn't know what you were lookin' for
Til you heard the voices in your ear

I remember every word you said
(Word you said)
I remember voices in my head
(In my head)
I remember ever word you said
(Word you said)

I heard your voice-it
Your voice is-cool voices
Warm voices
Just what I needed, too
Words don't seem right
But its
Cool voices-warm voices
Your voice is
Just what I needed for
Love is the word-it's
Warm voices-your voice is
Cool voices
Just what I needed, too
I heard your voice-it was
Your voice is-cool voices
Warm voices

Just what I needed, too
Just what I needed, too
Just what I needed, too

    General CommentTo me, this song is about listening to the voices of your spiritual guidance and perhaps being in love with the voices they belong to as well.

    General CommentMy senior yr. in high school I came *this* close to permforming this song in our school's talent show--just me singing with my choir teacher accompaning me on piano. At the last minute I had to drop out of the show because it conflicted with my after-school job's schedule. Listening to this song 23 yrs. later, I wished I had skipped work that night and sang this song, just me with the piano. Even when I fell in love with this song as a teenager, I could tell even back then my stripped down version for the talent show did this song way more justice than the "Dream Police" version with a full amplified band, a string section, and to my now-very-adult ears, noticing Robin Zander warbling and sounding rather precious in delivering the lyrics. Too bad such a beautiful, tender song had been given that kind of "rock anthem" treatment, thus totally overpowering such a lovely, sweet, yet strongly passionate "power pop" ballad.

    General CommentLyrics that entirely encapsulate the angst of early love - but it doesn't stop there. People of all age have this. Robin's vocals are perfectly fragile when needed and 'balls-on' when necessary. Rick can really write a lovely tune. This is quite lovely and yet not schmaltz. These guys never got the credit they deserved. They had a number of really good songs.
