I heard a voice
calling form the wilderness.
Calling from the wilderness.

Not quite a whistle.
Not quite a song.
Not too short.
Not too long.

I know you
but you don't know me.
I know you
but you don't know me.

"If you choose not to DECIDE
you still have made a choice,"
said a high and squeaky voice.

I know you
but you don't know me. X4

Treasure found.
Treasure lost.
Not concerned with what it cost.

I know you
but you don't know me. X4

"Oh, Dear Darling do not...
You will be loved again,"
said a high and lonesome voice.

I know her
but she don't know me. X4

    General CommentFor anyone who can't find or can't afford Rheostatics' and Martin's CDs, there is a Rheos-approved site of many fan-recorded live shows at rheostaticslive.com/

    The quality varies a lot, but when it's good it's great. When you see the soundboard mentioned in the recording notes, it's likely to be better quality. There's a wonderful set by Martin from Lee's Palace, Toronto, 2005 which includes Voices from the Wilderness : rheostaticslive.com/…
