Heard Somebody Cry

This song is by Oingo Boingo and appears on the album Dead Man's Party (1985).

I thought I heard somebody cry-I thought I heard somebody cry
I went to see what I could find-like flowers in the dead of night
Like shadows in the moonlight-I thought I heard somebody cry
A choir with a single voice-a picnic on a cliff
Antenna like an insect-to pick up all your thoughts

It isn't true
I am not the ghost
Without a soul... Come
Listen to my heart
You feel the beat... Stop
Listen to the sound
Of moving feet... Walk
Through the halls at night
When I'm asleep
I don't believe... I don't believe

The shoe is on the other foot-the glove is on the fist
The first is like a cannonball-but it feels like a kiss
I got a bed that's real soft-in a room that's always sad
I thought I heard a window sigh-I though I heard somebody cry

It isn't true
I am not the ghost
Without a soul... Come
Listen to my heart
You feel the beat... Stop
Listen to the sound
Of moving feet... Walk
Through the halls at night
When I'm asleep
I don't believe... I don't believe

A choir with a single voice-a picnic on a cliff
Antenna like an insect-to pick up all your thoughts
I sip the running water-like rivers from your eyes

I thought I heard somebody cry-somebody might be lost
I thought I heard somebody cry-somebody might be lost
I thought I heard somebody cry-I thought I'd go and see
I thought I heard somebody cry-somebody might be me
