Talk To Me While I'm Listening 
Songwriter: Nanci Griffith 
I should have know that you were gone back in Germany
You told me in the dark while I was sleeping
Then you slept through the sunrise
As it washed upon your face
And all that I had heard were our hearts beating

Talk to me while I'm listening now
While this love has a voice that we both can hear
Before you let it go
The greatest love I've ever known
Won't you please talk to me while I'm listening

I cannot find a place to put this love away
Or lost the thought of sunlight on your face
I thought I heard your voice
Say I love today
But it was only the sound of my heart breaking


How I wish that I could take us back to Germany
And I would stay awake and you would talk to me
Yet for every drop of rain I hear
There's bound to fall another tear
Upon this page of song of my heart aching
