Voices
Jon Brion Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Hey it's me again
Plain to see again
Please can I see you every day

I'm a fool again
I fell in love with you again
Please can I see you every day
You didn't know what you were looking for
Till you heard the voices in your ears
You didn't know what you were looking for
Till you heard the voices in your ears

Words don't come out right
I try to say it all so right
I hope you understand my meaning

Hey it's me again
I'm so in love with you again
Please can I see you every day

You didn't know what you were looking for
Till you heard the voices in your ears
You didn't know what you were looking for
Till you heard the voices in your ears

I remember every word you said
I remember voices in my head
I remember every word you said

I heard your voice
It was just what I needed to
Words don't seem right
It was just what I needed to

Warm voices
Cool voices
Your voices
It was just what I needed to
Warm voices
Cool voices
Your voices
It was just what I needed to
Just what I needed to
Just what I needed

You didn't know what you were looking for
Till you heard the voices in your ears
You didn't know what you were looking for
Till you heard the voices in your ears

You didn't know what you were looking for





You didn't know what you were looking for

Overall Meaning

The song "Voices" by Jon Brion is a simple yet powerful song about falling in love again and again with the same person. The lyrics reflect the feelings of someone who can't get enough of their lover and is asking to see them every day. The singer is vulnerable and admits to being a fool for falling in love again but also hopes that the object of their affection can understand their true meaning.


The chorus repeats the phrase "You didn't know what you were looking for till you heard the voices in your ears." This line can be interpreted in different ways, but it seems that the singer is referring to the voice of their loved one, which they heard and recognized as the missing piece they were searching for. The warm and cool voices mentioned at the end of the song may be a reference to the different moods and tones the singer hears in their lover's voice, which they find comforting and reassuring.

sonu das

such a beautiful explanation of Ted's life .
you can just introduce the characters to a person who hasn't seen HIMYM and make him listen to this song. There won't be any need to explain things to him

The world needs more Jon Brion in it.
