can't you hear me?
lyrics

can't you hear me?
janice leber 2016

Can't you hear me calling you
far across the ocean blue?
What can I do to get through to you?
Doncha love me any more?

Can't you hear the marching beat
of my footsteps down the street?
When we meet it'll be so sweet
We'll be happy honey like before.

I wanna talk to you!
Come on, baby, pick up the phone
How can you leave me here
on the wrong continent all alone?

Can't you hear me calling out,
see me cry or feel me pout?
There's no doubt we can work it out,
We'll be happy honey like before.

I've been wanting to talk to you!
Come on, baby, pick up the phone
How can you leave me here
on the wrong continent all alone
takin' care of business

Can't you hear me calling you
far across the ocean blue?
What can I do to get through to you?
Darlin' doncha love me, ain't ya thinkin' of me,
Doncha love me any more?


about the song

Well, this jaunty little number is the result of the sudden, unexpected, tragic death of a dear friend. Pretty surprising that THIS is the result of THAT.

The thing is, after he died many, many moons ago, my friend appeared in my dreams a few times. And even though the dreams were weird and unsettling, I was thrilled to see him again. But then he stopped playing a role in my dreams and I still missed him terribly. So I wrote this song. It didn't help with my situation, but it is kinda cute and fun to sing. It's an upbeat souvenir of a very dark time.
