About the Song

Despite that they are apart, the two people in the song are still strongly in love. They realized that not having each other makes a whole lot of difference in their lives.

All these moments alone

Make me realize

Just how empty this old world is

Without you in my life

Therefore, they send messages to each other to feel that they are still together.

Let me hear your sweet voice sayin’

You love me again

Even though we’re apart

I hold to your memory

Send a message to my heart

To keep you here with me

Here’s Dwight Yoakam and Patty Loveless’ duet.
