Lyrics

Whispers

Written By: Chad Conner


I put you in the earth today at the spot where we first met
The place we had our first kiss under that summer sunset
Where we played those silly games that I always let you win
Where you swore you can hear whispers in the wind
I thought you were crazy because they never spoke to me
But sitting on that hill I heard her words clearly

Please forgive me I’m sorry I had to leave
I promise it’s not over it’s not the end of you and me
I’ve loved you from the start each and every day
Try to be strong - in my heart you’ll always stay
I promise to love you forever and until that day we meet again
Just close your eyes and listen to my whisper in the wind

The service was real nice I think you would have been so proud
Your daughter sang your favorite hymn and we followed along out loud
But everyone has left now I don’t want to leave
My mind knows that you’re gone, but my heart won’t believe
That I will never get to hold you, I’ll never see that pretty smile
You promised not to be gone long you’ll only be a little while
I know I’m being selfish, wishing I was in that car instead
But you left without warning; leaving nothing but this whisper I my head

Please forgive me I’m sorry I had to leave
I promise it’s not over it’s not the end of you and me
I’ve loved you from the start each and every day
Try to be strong in my heart you’ll always stay
I promise to love you forever and until that day we meet again
Just close your eyes and listen to my whisper in the wind

It’s been almost a year now nothing much has changed
Preacher comes by on Sundays I still don’t know his name
Asking have I found Jesus do I ever speak to him?
But I spend most nights crying and praying for the wind
This is not what you wanted this is not what I had planned
But a piece of me died with you I’m left a broken man
I want so bad to hold you feel your touch again
I can still smell your perfume but I can’t remember when
I saw those autumn leaves falling and heard a whisper in the wind.
