Cheap Trick – Voices

From their 1979 album Dream Police, The song peaked at #32 on Billboards Hot 100 chart in 1979. Steve Lukather from the band Toto played guitar on this song uncredited. You can hear a heavy influence of the Beatles in this song.

From songfacts.

I fell in love with you again
Please, can I see you every day?

Except that it’s coming from inside his own head. “You hear voices in your head or somebody’s just messing with your brain and hears voices,” the song’s writer, guitarist Rick Nielsen, told The A/V Club. “You hear something, it’s like you didn’t know what you were listening for until you heard the voices. Somebody, your mind’s eye, has some talking to do to you.”

Arnold Levine directed the video for this song, which was done on the same shoot for the “Dream Police” clip.

Voices

You didn’t know what you were lookin’ for
Til you heard the voices in your ear
Hey, it’s me again
Plain to see again
Please can I see you every day
I’m a fool again
I fell in love with you again
Please can I see you every day
You didn’t know what you were lookin’ for
Til you heard the voices in your ear
You didn’t know what you were lookin’ for
Til you heard the voices in your ear
Words don’t come out right
I try to say it oh so right
I hope you understand my meaning
Hey, it’s me again
I’m so in love with you again
Please can I see you every day
You didn’t know what you were lookin’ for
Til you heard the voices in your ear
You didn’t know what you were lookin’ for
Til you heard the voices in your ear
I remember every word you said
(Word you said)
I remember voices in my head
(In my head)
I remember ever word you said
(Word you said)
I heard your voice-it
Your voice is-cool voices
Warm voices
Just what I needed, too
Words don’t seem right
But its
Cool voices-warm voices
Your voice is
Just what I needed for
Love is the word-it’s
Warm voices-your voice is
Cool voices
Just what I needed, too
I heard your voice-it was
Your voice is-cool voices
Warm voices
Just what I needed, too
Just what I needed, too
Just what I needed, too
