I Can't Hear The Music

Album: All The Lost Souls (2007)
  • Is it a warning?
    Is it an evil sign?
    Is it a people
    Who have lost their mind?
    Is it the darkness?
    Is it a man resigned?
    Is it a best friend
    Leaving you behind?
    Is it ever gonna stop
    Will they ever let you go
    Your in a rush they don't care enough
    Cause there lives are very slow
    Time is ticking on
    You don't get a second shot
    And when you sell your soul
    For a leading role will the lost souls be forgot

    And if I can?t hear the music
    And the audience is gone
    I'll dance here on my own.
    And I hope the lonely hearts club band
    Will play out one last song
    Before the sun goes down.

    And is it ending
    Should it really make you sick is now the time that you realize
    You better get out quick cause time is ticking on
    To long to fake your smile
    But then you sell your soul for a leading role so wear it for a while

    And if I can't hear the music
    And the audience is gone
    I'll dance here on my own.
    And I hope the lonely hearts club band
    Will play out one last song
    Before the sun goes down.

    And there she goes
    And there she goes
    So write
    Cause billy's got himself a gun billy's got himself a gun
    And your right to be afraid they'll send you to your grave cause your strange

    And if I can't hear the music
    And the audience is gone
    I'll dance here on my own.
    Cause billy's got himself a gun billy's got himself a gun
    And your right to be afraid they'll send you to your grave cause your strange

    And if I can't hear the music and the audience is gone I'll dance.

    And is it evil?
    Should it really make you sick?
    Is now the time that you realize
    You'd better get out quick?
    And is it envy


    Or pride that makes them vain?
    Did you give your all
    But you're only small
    And now your body's drained?
    This is never gonna stop.
    They will never let you go.
    You're in a rush.
    They don't care enough.
    Cause their lives are very slow.
    Time is ticking on.
    Too long to fake your smile.
    But then you sold your soul for a leading role
    So wear it for a while.

    And if I can't hear the music
    And the audience is gone
    I'll dance here on my own.
    And I hope the lonely hearts club band
    Will play out one last song
    Before the sun goes down.

    And there she goes
    And there she goes


    So round you'll see me run
    Cause billy's got himself a gun
    And you're right to be afraid
    They'll send you to your grave
    Cause it's strange and new

    And if I can't hear the music
    And the audience is gone
    I'll dance here on my own.
    And I hope the lonely hearts club band
    Will play out one last song
    Before the sun goes down.

    And there she goes
    And there she goes

    So round you'll see me run
    Cause billy's got himself a gun
    And you're right to be afraid
    They'll send you to your grave
    cause it's strange and new

    So round you'll see me run
    Cause billy's got himself a gun
    And you're right to be afraid
    They'll send you to your grave
    Cause it's strange and new

    And if I can't hear the music
    And the audience is gone
    I'll dance? Writer/s: JAMES BLOUNT
