"Truth Is A Whisper" as written by and John Rzeznik....
Truth is a whisper and only a choice
Nobody hears above this noise
To the
It's always a risk when you try to believe
In this
I know there's so much more than me yeah

Yeah I got caught in the ruse of the world
It's just a promise no one never keeps
And now it's changing while you sleep
And no one here can see

You know all I am
Feel this moment in you
You know all I am
Can you teach me to believe in something

Sometimes you choke on the smell
Just to breathe
I need to question what I need
Rhythm of silence
That beats through your mind
Still you forget what you deny yeah

And I got caught in the ruse of the world
It's just a promise no one never keeps
And now it's changing in your sleep
And no one here can see

You know all I am
Feel this moment in you
You know all I am
Can you teach me to believe in something

Who's the one you answer to
Do you listen when he speaks
Or is everything for you

And do you find it hard to sleep
Or is it easy on your own
And will you ever find some peace
Before you're gone

You know all I am
Feel this moment in you
You know all I am
Can you teach me to believe in something

    I just think that's the best part of the song - kinda how I feel about someone very close to me

    General CommentAs a vigilent NON-90's music fan, the Goo Goo Dolls are one of the few bands I REALLY like out of that era. When I heard about the new release, I downloaded a few random trax from AudioGalaxy.com (before the shutdown)... and this was the first one I came across...

    YES I DID go out and BUY IT shortly thereafter!

    Gr8 band. Rock on guys.

    General CommentThis is a song about someone that relizes that they can't see past peoples face and therefore they look back at thier life and relise that all the bad times they've had resulted from them not speaking thier mind so this persons now asking a good friend to help teach them how to express thier feelings in front of other people

    General Commentits a great song its how much life can change in a period of probably eight hours or just even less becuase it takes just a little bit of time to change anything just look at the current iraqi-us war it took forty eight hours for him to leave and he never left and we started war with the iraqi people while they were still asleep @ 8:00 EST

    General Commentthis song makes me think of all the propaganda and sh*t thats being thrown around by all the governments to try and jutify everything they do- "Truth is a whisper only a choice Nobody hears above this noise "
    and how people need to think that somone's telling the truth "Can you teach me to believe in something?"
