can you hear the bells?

All alone in the crowd
I sink to my knees
I sink to my knees and pray

There are times when the only thing you can do is laugh away (that hollow sound)

You turn on the radio
Nothing’s playin’ on but the sweet love songs you can’t bear
Is there no escape?
And even on the television
It’s sweet platitudes about how love is forever, love is for real
But it hasn’t been that way for me
It hasn’t been that way, no no, that’s not somethin’ I can say

All alone in the crowd
I sink to my knees and pray
Those times when the only thing you can do is laugh away
Those times, at those times you are
So near and yet so far

Can you hear the bells
They toll for me
They speak your sound
They tell me turn around
They remind me
Of who you are
Of what I am
And what we had

I’m not gonna throw it away
Not for these stakes

Your turn at the game we play
It’s your move now
I surrender, yeah you heard me right
I give up the fight

All alone in the crowd
I sink to my knees and pray
Is there no one that understands?
Those times when the only thing you can do is laugh away
Those times, at those times you are
So near and yet so far

Can you hear the bells
They toll for me
They speak your sound
They tell me turn around
They remind me
Of who you are
Of what I am
And what we had

It seems you’re gonna let this fade
The promises we made

You can’t hear the bells
Not anymore
