Did you hear about the deaf girl
The one who sang a silent song
Although it's totally quiet
You can't help but hum along

Did you hear about the deaf girl
The one who wrote the silent CD
Although there's nothing to hear
I swear that there are things to be seen

She'll make the world stand still
She'll make the world stand still

And someone sing us a song
That makes us feel like raspberries in the middle of June
When the garden's just getting going Someone sing us a song
That makes us feel like the coolest kid on the first day of school
You're as big as you're gonna get but you're still growing

Did you hear about the deaf girl
The one whose song's gone number one
Three minutes of silence on the radio
It's the best damn gift for everyone

Did you hear about the deaf girl
The one who made everything clear
If we could just shut up for a second
My darling, my dear, we might actually hear

She made the world stand still
She made the world stand still

And someone sing us a song
That makes us feel like the dead are breathing birthday balloons
And they blow and they blow and they blow
And someone sing us a song
That makes us feel like the fourth of July and New Year's Eve
Are making love in the snow
Ah-oh, ah-oh
