Softer Than Sound (They give me information)

They give me information I give them my ears
But I don't really need to know
They want to fix their wires inside my weary mind
I want to turn the sound down low.

Just talking faces spilling words into a void
They leave me empty every time.

And deaf to silence I could only hear the noise
It came to live inside my head
The world is shouting very loud at me tonight
But as I lay upon my bed

It comes softer than sound under the noise
Softer than sound
Softer than sound
I hear your voice
Softer than sound
Softer than sound

A word of yours is like a picture to my heart
I listen hard I am aware the breath of heaven
Blowing here I hardly dare look up in case I see you there
You come softer than sound under the noise
Softer than sound
Softer than sound
I hear your voice softer than sound
