the sounds lyrics – alan jackson

the sounds

i can hear a heartbeat
it seems a little strong
i can hear the things
that i did wrong
i can hear a song
by looking in her eyes
i can hear all
the times she cried

i can hear the memory
as they echo off the wall
falling from the pictures
down the hall
i can hear regret
building up inside of me
i can hear all them things
i could not see

those are the sounds of a woman leavin’
stronger than a wind in the willow tree
those are the sounds of a heart breakin’
you can’t hear it but the noise is killin’ me

i should have heard it comin’
but i chose to pretend
i should have recognized
that sound way back then
but i just wouldn’t listen
and didn’t want to all those years
now the truth is is ringin’ clear
in my ears

those are the sounds of a woman leavin’
stronger than a wind in the willow tree
those are the sounds of a heart breakin’
you can’t hear it but the noise is killin’ me

those are the sounds of a heart breakin’
you can’t hear it but the noise is killin’ me

i can hear it
and the silence is killin’ me…
