“Can You Hear Me When I Talk to You?” performed by Ashley Gearing

Time passes by so quickly
But I guess I thought you’d be here forever
I never even had the chance
To say goodbye
There’s so many things to tell you
Left unsaid until now

Can you hear me when I talk to you
Do the words I say ever make it through
Can you hear me when I talk to you
Cause I’d give anything if I just knew

Every night I have the same dream
The one where you get to hug me
We laugh an’ talk until the morning
An’ then you vanish
It always leaves me feeling helpless
When I wake up an’ you’re not there

Can you hear me when I talk to you
Do you know how much I’d love to be with you
Can you hear me when I talk to you
Cause I’d give anything if I just knew

Living in this world without you
I constantly search through my mem’ries
Hoping that I find some treasures
That I passed over
All that I took for granted
Means so much now an’ I won’t let it go

Can you hear me when I talk to you
Cause I never said some things that I meant to
Can you hear me when I talk to you
Cause I’d give anything if I just knew

You know I never said some things that I meant to
Can you hear me when I talk to you
Cause I’d give anything if I just knew
