lyrics

Looks like you've gone asleep
With your black shirt and your shoes on
talking to yourself, saying things I oughta know
you've been working me backwards everyday now

So when I'm stuck in regret
or anything I know I won't soon forget
I lay beside you while you're dreaming outloud

He heard her near He heard her singing out at
He'd like to hear it once again
A song so softly it could bring him back to
Back where it was that he began

These days you're less than able
to lift your head up off the breakfast table
I scold you in the day, and pray for you while you sleep

Well I hope you're riding on a horse
I hope you leave those city lights behind you
I hope you see my love when its drinking you up
or anything you want to

He heard her near He heard her singing out at
He'd like to hear it once again
A song so softly it could bring him back to
Back where it was that he began

Now I don't know where you've gone to
You left home the first chance I gave you
Can you still hear my voice? Can you still dream outloud?

Well I hope you learned these words
I hope you have the heart to sing them
even if they are the words you can't write down
and they chase you like a dog into the pouring rain

He heard her near He heard her singing out at
He'd like to hear it once again
A song so softly it could bring him back to
Back where it was that he began

about

James Wallace and the Naked Light Nashville, Tennessee

Once, in an abandoned house, I found a tape of Black Gospel music pirated from a station out of Greensboro in 1967. Like a child of the middle class, I wrote down how it felt. Now we're six or seven together, and loud enough.
