  • I can hear the animals, talking
    I can hear the animals, talking
    But they ain't talking to me, are they talking to you?
    If they ain't talking to me, who they talking to?

    I can hear electric lights, talking
    I can hear electric lights, talking
    But they ain't talking to me, are they talking to you?
    No they ain't talking to me, who they talking to?

    I'm listening
    I'm listening
    I'm listening in.

    I can hear the dead of night, talking
    I can hear the dead of night, talking
    But it ain't talking to me, is it talking to you?
    No it ain't talking to me, who's it talking to?

    I'm listening
    I'm listening
    I'm listening in.

    I'm on fire
    I'm under attack and
    It's been a long lonely winter, I just want you back.
    I know saw you up there in the window in some shadows arms.
    And I'm down here where the howling winds blow cause I know...

    I can hear the fear in me, talking
    I can hear the fear in me, talking
    And it's talking about me, and it talking about you
    And it's talking about me, can you hear it too? Writer/s: Scott A McMicken, Toby Mark Leaman
