I want to be with you
I want to be clear
But each time I try
It's the voice I hear
I hear that voice again

I'm listening to the conversation
Judge and jury in my head
It's colouring everything
All we did and said
And still I head that sharp tongue talking
Talking tangled words
I can sense the danger
Just listen to the wind

I want you close I want you near
I can't help but listen
But I don't want to hear
Hear that voice again

I want to be with you
I want to be clear
But each time I try
It's the voice I hear
I hear that voice again

I'm hearing right and wrong so clearly
There must be more than this
It's only in uncertainty
That we're naked and alive
I hear it through the rattle of a streetcar
Hear it through the things you said
I can get so scared
Listen to the wind

I want you close I want you near
I can't help but listen
But I don't want to hear
Hear that voice again

What I carry in my heart
Brings us so close or so far apart
Only love can make love

I want you close I want you near
I can't help but listen
But I don't want to hear
I hear that voice again

I want to be with you
I want to be clear
But each time I try
It's the voice I hear
I hear that voice again
