What You Hear

This would all be so much easier if she were there.
We wish she knew what you hear.
It sounds like something she would want to share.

Normally such days, a vacuum fills the air.
She's gone AWOL, it would appear.
This would all be so much easier if she were there.

We're impressed, disturbed, confused.  We maybe care.
Might a voiceover call it near?
It sounds like something she would want to share.

You're closer than you think, she won't say where -
we could whisper you into her ear.
This would all be so much easier if she were there.

The forecast points to love or war, that's fair.
She sets her channel on "sincere."
It sounds like something she would want to share.

Forgive your girl's crude attempts at savoir-faire
as in her "Wish you were here!"
This would all be so much easier if she were there.
It sounds like something she would want to share.
