Where’ve you been all my life? And you should have stayed clear.
Something about your lonely eyes; and the way you look at me, my dear.
So what makes you done with boys? You know, not everyone’s a lair.
You say there is something about my voice, that could have set your heart on fire.

And I, I will hear you when you whisper.
Just tell me everything you need, is everything you see in me.
You understand but don’t disagree, which is precisely my concern.

So what took you so damn long? Someday I would like to hear about your trip.
Something about your gentle song, that sometimes makes me wonder if…
So what makes you sleep at night, and wake up smiling in the morning?
You say something about the lack of light,
Maybe I’m the one your lips will turn for.

And I, I will hear you when you whisper.
Just tell me everything you need, is everything you see in me.
You understand but don’t disagree, which is precisely my concern.

What did you dream of as a girl? And did you ever let it go?
Some foolish boy promised the world. Say he loved you but never made it show.
So what makes you talk to me? I’m still just a silly dreaming fool.
There is something crazy, something free.
And you say it’s those things that make me feel new.

And I, I will hear you when you whisper.
So just tell me everything you need, is everything you see in me.
You understand but don’t disagree, which is precisely my concern.

And I, I will hear you when you whisper.
So just tell me everything you need, is everything you see in me.
You understand but don’t disagree, which is precisely my concern.

    General CommentA boy sent this to me, telling me that it's like he is singing it to me.
    I will never forget that, this song, or him.
