Is This Why I Love Music So Much?

May 4, 2009 1 comment

Is this why I can’t stand the silence?  Lyrics from a new Jars of Clay song…It’s really moving.  Great melodies, great message.  The video is under the lyrics.

I don’t have to hear it
If I don’t want to
I can drown this out
Pull the curtains down on you
It’s a heavy world
It’s too much for me to care
If I close my eyes
It’s not there

With my headphones on (x4)

We watch television
But the sound is something else
Just a song played against the drama
So the hurt is never felt
I take in the war fires
And I’m chilled by the current events
It’s so hopeless
But there’s a pop song in my head

phones on
With my headphones on (x7)

At the tube stop
You sit down across from me
I think I know you
By the sad eyes that I see
And I wanna tell you
Everything will be ok
But you wouldn’t hear it
So we go our separate ways

with our headphones on

I don’t wanna be the one who
Tries to figure it out
I don’t need another reason
I should care about you
You don’t wanna know my story
You don’t wanna own my pain
We’re living in a heavy, heavy world
And there’s a pop song in my head
yeah there’s a pop song in my head

Yeah it’s a heavy world
Oh no, I don’t wanna have to hear it
Heavy world

No, I don’t wanna have to hear it (x3)
