Voices Carry (Til Tuesday Cover)

 

“Voices Carry” is a song by the American rock band ‘Til Tuesday. It was produced by Mike Thorne for the band’s debut studio album, Voices Carry. The song’s lyrics, written by the band’s frontwoman Aimee Mann, portray a lover in an affair, and were originally written and sung as if to a woman, but changed due to Epic Records’ pressure. The song was inspired by Mann’s breakup with ‘Til Tuesday drummer, Michael Hausman.

I’m in the dark, I’d like to read his mind
But I’m frightened of the things I might find
Oh, there must be something he’s thinking of
To tear him away-a-ay
When I tell him that I’m falling in love
Why does he say-a-ay

Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry

I try so hard not to get upset
Because I know all the trouble I’ll get
Oh, he tells me tears are something to hide
And something to fear-eh-eh
And I try so hard to keep it inside
So no one can hear

Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Uh-ah

Oh!
He wants me, but only part of the time
He wants me, if he can keep me in line

Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, shut up now, voices carry
Hush hush, keep it down now, voices carry
Hush hush, darling, she might overhear
Hush, hush – voices carry

He said shut up – he said shut up
Oh God can’t you keep it down
Voices carry
Hush hush, voices carry

I wish he would let me talk
