Oh, I wish that you would call
We have not spoken since last fall
And that smoky conversation's
Coming home

Do I just read between your lines?
Yeah, could be this winter wine
So sweet upon my tongue tonight
Recalls your tender eyes

And I need more than a whisper
So much more than a whisper
It takes more than a whisper
To wake this weary fool

Oh, give me more than a whisper
If you're sayin', I love you
'Cause it's the whispers
That I've never understood

And it's snowing up in the northlands
I read your warm words from the plains
While the poets say that I should never
Be thinkin' of you this way

And they say that I misread your lines
'Cause I've been lonely all my life
And I'd be reaching for some silver
And leave my heart out in the fire

And I need more than a whisper
So much more than a whisper
It takes more than a whisper
To wake this weary fool

Oh, give me more than a whisper
If you're sayin', I love you
'Cause it's the whispers
That I've never understood

Well, I will drink my winter wine
When I get home I'll change my life
I'll only whisper that I love you
In those smoky bars at night

And though the poets say, I'm lonely
There's still this woman here inside
And I've never been a fool
When my heart was on the line

'Cause I need more than a whisper
So much more than a whisper
It takes more than a whisper
To wake this weary fool

Oh, give me more than a whisper
If you're sayin', I love you
'Cause it's the whispers
That I've never understood
