Lyrics: When the darkness that surrounds you is all that you can see
And fear climbs inside your chest and makes it hard to breathe
Just listen
There’s an answer in the silence right behind the noise
Well its distant yet familiar, its the sound of your own voice

All you have to do is listen

Chorus
Sometimes the whisper in your head is really from your heart
Sometimes the smallest star can burn the brightest in the dark
You are a fire even if you think you’re just a spark
Sometimes the whisper in your head is really from your heart

When the straight and when the narrow becomes 1000 roads
Let your footsteps be your compass, you know which way to go

All you have to do is listen

Chorus

Instrumental

Bridge
Close your eyes, just close your eyes and listen

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
