Calling You

Did you hear a whisper?
Did you hear a cry?
Did you hear a voice - saying - someone's got to die?
Did you tell my secret?
Did they even ask why?
Did you breath a word or hold your breath, did you even try?

And now the voices in my head are calling you
The voices in my head are calling you
You sold your soul with the lies you told
You can't die young and you'll never grow old
The voices in my head are calling you

Did you pause a moment?
Maybe change your mind?
Did you have a hope - praying - Lord, don't let me die?
Did you you beg for mercy?
Did you curse my kind?
Did you realize those you despise, we are your tribe.

And now the voices in your head are calling you
The voices in your head are calling you
You sold your soul with the lies you told
You can't die young but you'll never grow old
The voices in your head are calling you

Did you hear me whisper?
Did I hear you sigh?
Did you hear our voice - saying - someone's going to die?

Do you have any music to go with this? Maybe some sheet music or a recording of how it would sound?

Thank you everyone for the comments. This is indeed lyrics for a song, but the music unfortunately is only in my head (along with those pesky voices). It is part of a project I am working on called The Dreaming Dark which will hopefully someday become a novel and/or screenplay. My hub "The Sign" is also a song from this project.

Thanks again! I really appreciate everyone reading my work and especially taking the time to comment.
