a whisper and a scream lyrics – pam tillis

(verlon thompson/austin cunningham)

there’s a tomcat in the alley scarin’ up a fight
there’s a mother softly kissing her little one goodnight
there’s peace and then there’s chaos, reality and dreams
we’re all trying to strike a balance between a whisper and a scream

sometimes i need atttention when you need left alone
sometimes you feel like clinging when i feel like being gone
but love me soft and tender and we’ll make the rafters ring
as long as we meet somewhere between a whisper and a scream

well, i know you’ll be listening
and you know i’ll be there
between a whisper and a scream we’ll find a prayer
well i used to blow up easy and put my fist right through a wall

you were shut down like a holiday not feeling much at all
but we met there at the crossroad goin’ to extremes
thank god we found each other between a whisper and a scream
somehow we found each other between a whisper and a scream
