"What I Hear You Can't, How Come?" as written by Betsy Martin, Fred Cross, Kevin Pinnt and Mark Schafer....
Out there I hear sounds
I know
don't exist for you
how come
Out there I hear sounds
you can't - how come?

Of this I conclude I know
much more than I did
how come
out there I hear sounds
you can't - how come

out there I hear sounds like
I know
what I hear you can't
how come?
out pounds Out pounds
more than you know - how come?

Out there I hear sounds I'm sure of
what they are I conclude
I know
Out there I hear sounds like
I love you - how come?

    General CommentUntil the last stanza I might think the song was about a schitzophrenic. But when she sings that it is the proclamation of love that only she can hear, it makes my heart skip a beat. She is addressing someone in particular and I doubt it is a composite character. Someone love does not exist for is tragic and the singing is in synch with the message of the song. It is slow paced and the way she emphasized her words is uniquie and special because the person she is writing about is special to her. She is in grief. The music is subdued to fit the message as well. This is a band that could crank out some very good hard rock. This is contemplative. I would not say cathartic...haven't used that word since college. But it might bring a tear to your eye if you are tender hearted. I think there are so few of us.
