sounds…

i hear sounds…

noises…

sounds…

what kinda’ sounds…

train blowin’ in night…television without a signal…cars passin’ by…sirens of an ambulance carryin’ off the crucified…police cars markin’ territory…sounds…

just ‘nother night…

yes…and whiskey won’t drown them out…these sounds…hum of the refrigerator… running of a toilet…a baby crying down the hall…wind whisperin’ outside my window…not gentle…nothing is gentle…

i hear nothing…not a peep…nothing…

we’re in different places…

same…

no…different…

i am here beside you…i hear nothing…none of what you say…it’s all in your mind…your conjuring up these things…these noises…

do you believe…

in what…

do you believe there’s somethin’ besides us…

a greater power…

just somethin’…

don’t know…

and that’s why you cannot hear…you don’t believe…once you believe…you hear…see…things that no-one else can…

by believing…

yes…

what do you believe in…

stars…moon…white snow…staccato notes hit just right…a kiss at midnight on New Year’s Eve…

i see…

do you…

your’s is the romantic life…the unreal is real to you…

very real…

well i’ll be damned…what i wouldn’t give…what i wouldn’t give…
