  • You could say I'm a little bit crazy
    You could call me insane
    Walkin' 'round with all these whispers
    Runnin' 'round here in my brain

    I just can't help but hear 'em
    Man, I can't avoid it
    I hear voices
    I hear voices like

    My dad sayin', "Work that job
    But don't work your life away"
    And mama tellin' me to drop some cash
    In the offerin' plate on Sunday

    And granddad sayin', "You can have a few
    But don't ever cross that line"
    Yeah, I hear voices all the time

    Turns out I'm pretty dang lucky
    For all that good advice
    Those hard-to-find words of wisdom
    Holed up here in my mind

    And just when I've lost my way
    Or I've got too many choices
    I hear voices
    I hear voices like

    My dad sayin', "Quit that team
    And you'd be a quitter for the rest of your life"
    And mama tellin' me to say a prayer
    Every time I lay down at night

    And grandma sayin', "If you find the one
    You better treat her right"
    Yeah, I hear voices all the time

    Sometimes I try to ignore 'em
    But I thank God for 'em
    'Cause they made me who I am

    My dad sayin', "Work that job
    But don't work your life away"
    And mama tellin' me to drop some cash
    In the offerin' plate on Sunday

    And granddad sayin', "You can have a few
    But don't ever cross that line"
    Yeah, I hear voices all the time
    Yeah, I hear voices all the time
