I Can't Hear the Music
James Blunt Lyrics


Is it a warning?
Is it an evil sign?
Is it a people
Who have lost their mind?
Is it the darkness?
Is it a man resigned?
Is it a best friend
Leaving you behind?
Is it ever gonna stop
Will they ever let you go
Your in a rush they don't care enough
Cause there lives are very slow
Time is ticking on
You don't get a second shot
And when you sell your soul
For a leading role will the lost souls be forgot

And if I can?t hear the music
And the audience is gone
I'll dance here on my own.
And I hope the lonely hearts club band
Will play out one last song
Before the sun goes down.

And is it ending
Should it really make you sick is now the time that you realize
You better get out quick cause time is ticking on
To long to fake your smile
But then you sell your soul for a leading role so wear it for a while

And if I can't hear the music
And the audience is gone
I'll dance here on my own.
And I hope the lonely hearts club band
Will play out one last song
Before the sun goes down.

And there she goes
And there she goes
So write
Cause billy's got himself a gun billy's got himself a gun
And your right to be afraid they'll send you to your grave cause your strange

And if I can't hear the music
And the audience is gone
I'll dance here on my own.
Cause billy's got himself a gun billy's got himself a gun
And your right to be afraid they'll send you to your grave cause your strange

And if I can't hear the music and the audience is gone I'll dance.

And is it evil?
Should it really make you sick?
Is now the time that you realize
You'd better get out quick?
And is it envy


Or pride that makes them vain?
Did you give your all
But you're only small
And now your body's drained?
This is never gonna stop.
They will never let you go.
You're in a rush.
They don't care enough.
Cause their lives are very slow.
Time is ticking on.
Too long to fake your smile.
But then you sold your soul for a leading role
So wear it for a while.

And if I can't hear the music
And the audience is gone
I'll dance here on my own.
And I hope the lonely hearts club band
Will play out one last song
Before the sun goes down.

And there she goes
And there she goes


So round you'll see me run
Cause billy's got himself a gun
And you're right to be afraid
They'll send you to your grave
Cause it's strange and new

And if I can't hear the music
And the audience is gone
I'll dance here on my own.
And I hope the lonely hearts club band
Will play out one last song
Before the sun goes down.

And there she goes
And there she goes

So round you'll see me run
Cause billy's got himself a gun
And you're right to be afraid
They'll send you to your grave
cause it's strange and new

So round you'll see me run
Cause billy's got himself a gun
And you're right to be afraid
They'll send you to your grave
Cause it's strange and new

And if I can't hear the music
And the audience is gone
I'll dance?
