Why do Lovers Whisper? (Words and music by Alan Gillis)

Why do lovers whisper when the lights are low?
I want the world to know the way I feel tonight.

It feels so right - the warmth that's in your whisper
I don't need to share the way I feel tonight.


It's taken so long to find the love that I've been waiting for
And now you're here, I'm never letting go

Why do lovers whisper when there's no one else around?
The words of love still mean the same
But when you breathe my name
I want to feel your heartbeat next to mine
Hearts that beat in time
Louder than a whisper

You ask me "why do lovers whisper?"

That's why
