More Than A Whisper (Live (1988 Anderson Fair))

More Than A Whisper (Live (1988 Anderson Fair))

Nanci Griffith

Oh, I wish that you would call
We have not spoken since last fall
That smoky conversation's coming home
Do I just read between your lines
Yeah it could be this winter wine

So sweet upon my tongue tonight
It recalls your tender eyes
And I need more than a whisper
So much more than a whisper
It takes more than a whisper
To wake this weary fool
Oh give me more than a whisper
If you're saying I love you

Cause it's the whispers that I've never understood
And it's snowing up in the northlands
I read your warm words from the plains
While the poets say that I should never
Be thinking of you this way

They say that I misread your lines
Because I've been lonely all my life
And I'd be reaching for some silver
And leave my heart out in the fire
And I need more than a whisper
So much more than a whisper
It takes more than a whisper
To wake this weary fool

Oh give me more than a whisper
If you're saying I love you
Cause it's the whispers that I've never understood
Well I will drink my winter wine
When I get home I'll change my life
I'll only whisper that I love you
In those smoky bars at night

And though the poets say I'm lonely
There's still this woman here inside
And I've never been a fool
When my heart was on the line
Cause I need more than a whisper
So much more than a whisper
It takes more than a whisper
To wake this weary fool

Oh give me more than a whisper
If you're saying I love you
Cause it's the whispers that I've never understood
