Your Voice Again

John E Dosher

 

I need to hear your voice again

While I sit in awe and wonder

To be lost inside your echoes

And quietly feel your thunder

I need you to make me laugh again

I need you to make me cry

I need you to make me feel alone

I need you to get by

 

Talk to me in circles

Speak to me in rhyme

Describe to me the pain I feel

Tell me it’s a lie

Provide the inspiration

Where do I begin

Break the silence I need

To hear your voice again

 

Chorus:           

(Your Voice Again) – Like an echo in my mind

(Your Voice Again) – A shadow lost in time

(Your Voice Again) – Your sweet, sweet voice

Giving me my lines

 

Teach me how to make them laugh

Show me how to make them quit

How to make them listen

And how to be a hit

Remind me not to mumble

Give me words to say to them

When they ask me stupid questions

I need to hear your voice again

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Bridge:

I remember every word you said to me

And how you led me through the darkness of my youth

You gave me passion, gave me dreams, gave me hope

And through it all, you gave me truth

 

Thank you for the wisdom

You spoke into my heart

Thank you for your words of love

When my world has blown apart

You destroyed the hidden images

Strengthened me within

Rebuilt the mighty fortress

Now I hear your voice again

 

Final Chorus:

(Your Voice Again) –Echo in my mind

(Your Voice Again) – A shadow lost in time

(Your Voice Again) –Echo in my mind

(Your Voice Again) – Your sweet, sweet voice

Giving me my lines
