The Whisperer Lyrics

I was standing on the edge
I'd long for a new beginning
But I couldn't look down, but I couldn't look down
I went cold
A million voices scream in my head
And I felt sure that I would give in
So why couldn't I now, why couldn't I now?
Your voice was louder

By design, God gave me feelings
And by the design they shalt not kill
But when the noises overwhelm me
I feel sure that they will

Oh revelation, comes in whatever form to save me
I hear voices, and then the whisper comes
Your whisper in the breeze
Your whisper's what I'm needing
Quiet bursts, so to hurt the whisperer And though I struggle through the days now
It helps to know that you are listening
So I just wait it out
I'll wait this out, by the hour

By design, God gave me feelings
And by the design they shalt not kill
But when the noises overwhelm me
I feel sure that they will

Oh revelation, comes in whatever form to save me
I hear voices, and then the whisper comes
Your whisper in the breeze
Your whisper's what I'm needing
Quiet bursts, so to hurt the whisperer

Thoughts & Meanings

I think its about a suicidal person. " I was standing on the edge", she is about to jump of a window or a bridge but she can't do it because of the voice of someone: "Your voice was louder". "And though I struggle through the days now" means she is really depressed. She needs someone to save her, she doesn't want to have her own feelings kill her. "By design, God gave me feelings And by design they shalt not kill But when the noises overwhelm me I feel sure that they will.

I totally agree with you! I also thought it was about a suicidal person, especially the line- "By design God gave me feelings, and by design they shall not kill, but when the noises overwhelm me i feel sure that they will..." I think that line has a powerful meaning to it, meaning that God gave her feelings and that they should not kill, but when she feels overwhelmed she thinks that its going to effect her feelings so much its to the point of suicide. Currently loving this song, dont usually go for the sad type but cant stop listening. Thanks for helping me to find out what this song ACTUALLY means, because when i read this, it was so relatable. Now i have a clearer image of the meaning of this song! :)

I think that it's about the Holocaust. It talks about God, liberation, whispering and unheard voices, being a burden, along with Hitler's loud voice. I think Sia is trying to bring back the past that many people are trying to forget.

An interesting take on the song, but i like the idea!
