whispers my heart lyrics – melissa etheridge

i can hear somebody walking down this midnight street
so you came back to say goodbye thinking it would make
it complete
if you lost your love for me that’s all i need to know
so turn around and go but don’t listen too close

for you will see no tears from these eyes as i go back
to the start
i’ve got everything under control, everything but my
heart
i refuse to let you believe this is gonna tear me apart
but as you turn and walk away, so long whispers my
heart

i have lived long enough to know the pleasure and the
pain
it’s nothing new to find myself aching standing in the
pouring rain
i don’t care if it’s somebody else i don’t wanna hear
those lines
your love seems to be fine so i’ll take back mine

and you will see no tears from these eyes as i go back
to the start
i’ve got everything under control, everything but my
heart
and i refuse to let you believe this is gonna tear me
apart
but as you turn and walk away, so long whispers my
heart

it seems so easy for you to forget our long secret
nights
i haven’t yet
but you will believe i am surviving too
it’s something i must do
i’ll never let you feel what’s true

you will see no tears from these eyes as i go back to
the start
i’ve got everything under control, everything but my
heart
i refuse to let you believe this is gonna tear me apart
but as you turn and walk away, so long whispers my
heart
