Sound of Your Voice
griff Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Getting home late
When the house is quiet as a mouse
You comforted me
Well, you didn't, but the thought of you counts
'Cause it's comin' to a year or somethin' now
And time's fadin' out my memory, 'cause

I hardly remember the sound of your voice anymore
When I close my eyes, your face ain't as clear as before
I hardly remember the sound of your steps in the hallway
The way that I once did, my baby

I'm guessin' it's real good news
I'm laughing now like they told me to
Why don't it feel like good news?
'Cause I guess I got used to missing you
I'm guessin' it's real good news
I'm laughing now like they told me to
Why don't it feel like good news?
'Cause I guess I got used to missing you

When I wake up
There ain't a sadness over my head
The way that it was
At the start, when you'd only just left
And I should be thanking God or something now
That time's healing me, but it don't feel right 'cause

I hardly remember the sound of your voice anymore
When I close my eyes, your face ain't as clear as before
I hardly remember the sound of your steps in the hallway
The way that I once did, my baby
I hardly remember the sound of your breath anymore (hardly, oh)
When I close my eyes, your face ain't as clear as before (when I close my eyes)
I barely remember the way that it felt when you kissed me (I don't remember, baby, yeah)
The way that I once did, my baby

I'm guessin' it's real good news (news)
I'm laughing now like they told me to
Why don't it feel like good news?
'Cause I guess I got used to missing you (yeah)
I'm guessin' it's real good news (I'm guessing it's, I'm guessing it's)
I'm laughing now like they told me to
Why don't it feel like good news? (Why don't it feel good?)
'Cause I guess I got used to missing you
I'm guessin' it's real good news (whoa)
I'm laughing now like they told me to (I'm laughing, oh baby)
Why don't it feel like good news? (Why don't this feel good, baby?)
'Cause I guess I got used to missing you (yeah, yeah)
I'm guessin' it's real good news
I'm laughing now like they told me to




Why don't it feel like good news?
'Cause I guess I got used to missing you

Overall Meaning

The song "Sound of Your Voice" by Griff captures the bittersweet feeling of missing someone and getting used to their absence. The first verse describes coming home to a quiet house and seeking comfort in the thought of the person who's no longer there. The passage of time has dulled the singer's memories of the person's voice, footsteps, and even their breath. The chorus repeats this sentiment, with the singer acknowledging that they've become accustomed to missing the person, even though it doesn't feel like good news.


The second verse begins with the singer waking up without the sadness they used to feel. They know they should be grateful for the healing power of time, but it doesn't feel right because they've lost touch with so many memories of the person they miss. The chorus repeats, with a slight variation in the bridge: the singer recognizes that they're laughing now, perceiving the news as "real good," but the feeling of missing the person lingers.


Line by Line Meaning

Getting home late
Returning to my empty house at a late hour


When the house is quiet as a mouse
When the silence is deafening and there's no one there


You comforted me
Your presence brought me comfort


Well, you didn't, but the thought of you counts
Your absence was felt, but the memory of you still brings comfort


'Cause it's comin' to a year or somethin' now
It's been almost a year since you've been gone


And time's fadin' out my memory, 'cause
The memories of you are slowly fading away with time


I hardly remember the sound of your voice anymore
I can't recall the sound of your voice like I used to


When I close my eyes, your face ain't as clear as before
Even when I try to remember your face, it's not as clear as it used to be


I hardly remember the sound of your steps in the hallway
The sound of your footsteps in the hallway is a distant memory


The way that I once did, my baby
I don't remember the way I used to


I'm guessin' it's real good news
I assume there's good news to be heard


I'm laughing now like they told me to
I'm trying to be happy like everyone expects me to


Why don't it feel like good news?
Despite assuming it's good news, I don't feel happy about it


'Cause I guess I got used to missing you
I've become so accustomed to missing you, it's hard to feel happy without you


When I wake up
When I start my day


There ain't a sadness over my head
I don't wake up feeling sad anymore


The way that it was
How I used to feel when you were gone


At the start, when you'd only just left
In the beginning, when you had just left me


And I should be thanking God or something now
I should feel grateful for the healing time has brought me


That time's healing me, but it don't feel right 'cause
Although time has been healing, it doesn't feel right without you


I hardly remember the sound of your breath anymore (hardly, oh)
I can't remember the sound of your breath like I used to


When I close my eyes, your face ain't as clear as before (when I close my eyes)
Even when I try to remember your face with my eyes closed, it's not as clear as it used to be


I barely remember the way that it felt when you kissed me (I don't remember, baby, yeah)
I can hardly remember the way your kisses felt anymore


I'm laughing now like they told me to
I'm trying to put on a happy face even if I don't feel it


'Cause I guess I got used to missing you (yeah)
I've been missing you for so long that it's become a part of me now


Why don't this feel good?
Despite trying to be happy, it doesn't feel good without you


I'm guessing it's real good news
I assume there's good news I'm supposed to be excited about


I'm laughing now like they told me to (I'm laughing, oh baby)
I'm putting on a show of happiness like I'm expected to


'Cause I guess I got used to missing you (yeah, yeah)
Missing you has become so familiar that it's hard to imagine life without it
