Can You Hear the Song

from Too Old to Be a Rock Star by Joe Benoit



I wrap my hands around your neck
But I feel sick thinking what I could wreck
I’ll never be enough for you
Cause I’m not tortured
I guess I’m just bored
If every sound I love is gone
Then why go on?

Can you hear the songs I used to sing?
Did they ever mean a thing?
It’s over
But is it really over?
Maybe there’s a song that’s left to write
I won’t go down without a fight

I slide my hand across the top
Twist the knob but something makes me stop
What is there that’s left to say?

A tale of lost love?

A sign from high above?

I never had much impact there
So why should I care?


Some progressions will not ever go away
Even if they’re swinging from the gallows

Maybe there’s a land that’s not so far away
Where those chords are dancing in the shadows


from Too Old to Be a Rock Star, released October 1, 2019
