(I Could Only) Whisper Your Name - Lyrics by Harry Connick, Jr.


Somebody was spreading rumors
'bout better days a comin
Why was i hummin
As if i knew
One and the same
But i just whispered your name

Somebody was sayin something
'bout there being an end to tyranny
But when they asked me
What would i do...
If that day came
I only whispered your name

Everyone got their own opinion
And protects their own dominion
No doubt for them it's true
But i tell them what i really believe
My only worry is protecting you

No one should ever be lonely
We'd all find somebody to care
Ask me if i dare
To answer who...
Could carry that flame
I'd just whisper your name
