Every Time I Hear Your Name


Every Time I Hear Your Name

Verse 1:

I'm just lying here starring at the wall
Going back and forth, wondering if I should call
I know it's late. I know it's too far gone
But I'd just love to hear your voice
On the other end of my telephone

Chorus:

Oh, I'd tell you that I miss you
I'd say all the little things I know I'm not supposed to
Like how much I still love you
That I've never stopped thinking about you
That I'm longing for your kiss and my arms around your hips
Oh and how I wish things were still the same
And how deeply it still hurts every time I hear your name

Verse 2:

My fingers start to dial your number that I know by heart
I hold my breath as the ringing starts
Waiting patiently, but there's no answer
And before I know it, I'm lost in all of our memories
I close my eyes and can almost feel her lying next to me
But I know it's all a dream as I start to whisper the words I'd like to say to you....

Chorus:

Oh, I'd tell you that I miss you
I'd say, oh I'd say all the little things I know I'm not supposed to
Like how much I still love you
That you're always on my mind
That I'm longing for your kiss and my arms around your hips
That I wish things were still the same
Oh, and how deeply it still hurts every time I hear your name

Verse 3:

Oh these memories that I've found
Are interrupted by the sound of my cell phone ringing
I lose my breath and my heart starts singing
And every part of me hopes it's you
But as I look down I'm disappointed to see it's not you calling
So I scream out the words I'd like to say to you as my tears start falling....

Chorus:

Oh, I'd tell you that I miss you
I'd say all the little things
I know I'm not supposed to
Like how much I still love you
That you're always on my mind
That I'm longing for your kiss
And my arms around your hips
How I wish things were still the same
And how deeply it still hurts every time I hear your name
