"Talk to Me While I'm Listening" as written by and Nanci Griffith....
I should have known that you were gone back in Germany
You told me in the dark while I was sleeping
Then you slept through the sunrise
As it washed across your face
And all that I had heard were our hearts beating

[Chorus:]
Talk to me while I'm listening
While this love has a voice that we both
Can hear
Before you let it go,
The greatest love I've ever known
Won't you please
Talk to me
While I'm listening

I cannot find a place to put this love away
Or lose the thought of sunlight on your face
I thought I heard your voice
Say I love you today
But it was only the sound of my heart breaking

[Chorus]

How I wish that I could take us back to Germany
I would stay awake and you would talk to me
Yet for every drop of rain I hear
There's bound to fall another tear
Upon this page of song of my heart aching

[Chorus]

Before you let it go
This greatest love I've ever known
Won't you please
Talk to me
While I'm listening
Talk to me
Talk to me
