Whisper It To Me

I walked past a man this morning

On my way to work

He had nothing

He was sat there with all the worries in the world


He made the choice to raise his voice

And look me in the eye

And ask for something

That could make the difference, live or die


And I stood there

And somehow I was drawn to him

And I know it’s not fair

But somehow I envied him

And now I know it’s cause

Everything seemed simple in that moment

And I walked on


You don’t have to shout it from the rooftops

You don’t have to say it to anyone but me

I listen but you’re staying silent

And expecting me to hear you but I can’t

Please just whisper it

Whisper it to me


I saw a old friend this morning

I hadn’t seen for a year or two

And asked how they were doing

Expecting fine thanks how are you


She said that she’d been struggling

And I didn’t know what to think

I felt bad that I’d ignored her

So we went and had a drink


And I sat there

And felt like I could offer nothing

And I know it’s not fair

But I felt distracted

Cause although I care

When I listened

I thought of you

I thought of you


You don’t have to shout it from the rooftops

You don’t have to say it to anyone but me

I listen but you’re staying silent

And expecting me to hear you but I can’t

Please just talk to me


Talk to me

You said you wanted to emulate your brother

And do the things he never could

You wanted to create a legacy

You were so clear like you understood

What you wanted to do

How you planned on working through it

And that you’d need to speak someone

How he spoke to you


You said

It’s not about being sad

It’s being grateful for what you had

But what about what you have?


You don’t have to shout it from the rooftops

You don’t have to say it to anyone but me

I listen but you’re staying silent

And expecting me to hear you but I can’t

Please just whisper to me

Whisper it to me
