  • Why are my words running together
    I thought you'd anchor me down
    Forget all that let's get out
    Tonight it's you and me
    Looking for the only sound that matters

    Sometimes you're so misleading
    Sometimes you just feel right
    Put me to sleep so easily or keep me out all night
    Looking for the only sound that matters
    Is there one in here
    Looking for the only sound that matters

    And it's drawn to you like a compass

    That's leading you on
    Like a back light too
    It's your protection
    It's leaving it on
    Waiting for your return the only sound that matters

    Put me to sleep so easily or keep me out all night
    Looking for the only sound that matters
    Was it what you thought
    Just looking for the only sound that matters
    Yeah was it what you thought Writer/s: GREG VANDERPOOL
