Out of the lonely blue
U went away and left me (I...)
Without, without 1 single word (I hear ur voice, I...)
Night after night (I hear ur voice)
Like a ghost from the past (I...)
Ur voice is all I heard (I hear ur voice calling n the night)
I can't take it, baby (I...)
Don't let me die like this

I remember just like it was yesterday
I woke up, baby, and U were gone
I didn't even wanna carry myself up outta bed
Let alone, I didn't wanna carry on

Cuz I could hear (I hear ur voice calling n the night)
I can't stop it no matter how hard I try
I can hear (I hear ur sound calling n the dark)
N a word, I feel like I wanna die

I started lookin', lookin' from dusk till dawn
4 ways that I wouldn't miss U so much (I hear ur voice)
I even bought a new dress, uh, but when I put it on
I could still, huh, still feel ur touch

And I can hear (I hear ur voice calling n the night)
I can't stop it no matter how hard I try
I can hear (I hear ur sound calling n the dark)
N a word, I feel like I wanna die (I...)

My friends tell me that I need a new love
A bird n hand beats 2 n the bush (I hear ur voice)
What my friends don't know, huh, and I ain't about 2 tell 'em
Is that U're the only bird, U're the only 1 who knows what buttons 2 push
It don't take no scientist 2 tell U what's wrong with me
It don't take good vision, huh, 2 see what any fool could see
That I just need ur body (I hear ur voice)
I just need ur face (...calling n the night)
Right where it counts
No, not n another place
I'm talkin' 'bout all up (I hear ur voice)
Talkin' 'bout all down (...calling n the night)
Every inch, U see? I don't need U crosstown
U better read my lips, I need U here with me
I can't stop it no matter how I try (I hear ur sound)
N a word (...calling n the dark), I feel like I wanna die

I hear ur voice
I can't take it, baby (I hear ur voice)
Don't let me die like this
No!

I...
I hear ur voice, I...
I hear ur voice, I...
I hear ur voice calling n the night, I...
