Song Lyric Sunday – Whisper by A Fine Frenzy

One Cell in the Sea was one of my favorite albums at a time in my life when everything was changing and I was breaking out of an abusive relationship.  When I listen to the songs from the album today, they still give me so much hope.

When I listened to this song again today, it so accurately described how I’ve been feeling lately.  It’s been a rough year and I’ve really felt like I was losing myself in many ways.  But, I believe there is always hope, and if you can just hold on, you may find that everything will look differently given some time.  “If you stay real close, I will reach you.”

I also love how poetic the lyrics to this song are.

I hope you enjoy!

Running the race
Like a mouse in a cage
Getting nowhere but I’m trying
Forging ahead
But I’m stuck in the bed
That I made so I’m lying

But if you keep real close
Yeah, you stay real close
I will reach you

I’m down to a whisper
In a daydream on a hill
Shut down to a whisper
Can you hear me still

Eager to please
Trying to be what they need
But I’m so very tired
I’ve stopped trying to find
Any peace in my mind
Because it tangles the wires

But if you keep real close
Yeah, you stay real close
I will reach you

I’m down to a whisper
In a daydream on a hill
Shut down to a whisper
Can you hear me
Can you hear me still

The sound tires on my lips
To fade away into forgetting

I’m down to a whisper
In a daydream on a hill
Shut down to a whisper
Can you hear me
Can you hear me

I’m down to a whisper
In a daydream on a hill
Shut down to a whisper
Can you hear me
Can you hear me still

  1. I love the beauty and rhythm of this song. It’s almost like a lullaby, but with a soft cry in the dark that says, I’m tired, and I’m quiet, but I’m not giving up, reaching for hope.
