Couldn't Hear Me
Eric Roberson Lyrics


She would sit and listen for hours as I played guitar yo
Sing my songs up on the radio while she was in her car yo
Her interest will grow
She came to my shows
She new every note
Each line that I wrote
And suddenly she was in love
In time I met this little girl was attracted to her ways yo
What took years for some couples to build for us it just took days yo
So as time went on I wrote her more songs
Not knowing those songs will soon come along
Leaving me in pain oh...

Chorus:
Show must go on unfortunately
I'm all alone
Up from my dreams
‘Cause she couldn't hear me over the music
Didn't hear me over the music
Couldn't hear me over the music
She never really knew my song

As time went on she started to see I was not superman no
I may have a gift for these words but I'm no more than a man so
My songs about joy
My songs about pain
She loved them the same but to me she changed
Holding on got so hard
I would be up in the studio
Some nights she slept alone (nights she slept alone)
She'll get mad, fill with jealously
‘Cause I'm making love to these poems oh
Now when I do shows it seems she gets steamed
As if I have flings with those girls that scream out my name
And she use to do the same

Chorus:
Show must go on unfortunately
I'm all alone
Up from my dreams
‘Cause she couldn't hear me over the music
Didn't hear me over the music
Couldn't hear me over the music
She never really knew my song
2 xs

If I find love tomorrow
hoping it don't follow
The path I've been lost on too many times….

Chorus:
Show must go on unfortunately
I'm all alone
Up from my dreams
‘Cause she couldn't hear me over the music
Didn't hear me over the music
Couldn't hear me over the music
She never really knew my song

Jovan Washington

Eric Roberson is a accomplished singer song writer with a string of hits. He has wrote 2 songs for Music soul child, 1 on 112's room 112, stuff for jill Scott, will smith, he is part of jazzy jeffs production team, Dwele, Charlie Wilson, case, Carl Thomas, Cam'ron and Gina Thompson plus many more artist that are not as known!!!!! Those who have heard him give him credit, plus he's been accredited with writing hits for the names I just mentioned so he's laughing

Soulful Inspiration

I think Musiq & Eric should do an album together, it would be dope!

Jasper Jamm

They already collaborated! Erro wrote and sang background vocals on “previous cats”. But yes that would be so dope!
