I've often wondered how love would strike me yet
Would it hit me like thunder, that's what I'd expect
But when I held you, I knew it was different from the start
No words were spoken, but I felt it in my heart
It was softer than a whisper
Quiet as the moon
But I could hear it loud as laughter
Across a crowded room
It was gentle as a baby's hand
But it held me like a chain
It was softer than a whisper
When love called out my name
Last night you lay sleepin' when I thought I heard a sound
I got up and slowly, took a look around
Well I found no answer-- No sound I could explain
It must have been your heart, dear, callin' out my name
It was softer than a whisper
Quiet as the moon
But I could hear it loud as laughter
Across a crowded room
It was gentle as a baby's hand
But it held me like a chain
It was softer than a whisper
When love called out my name
Yes, it was softer than a whisper
When love called out my name
