Sound - David Coutant - Lyrics

Sound

If a tree falls in the woods
and no one's around to hear it
does it make a sound?
Well, that depends
on what you consider sound

Sound is a vibration on the air
that's picked up by the ear
and perceived by the brain
so if there's not an ear
what does the vibration mean?

If it's just a movement of the air
until it hits an ear
well, that's one way to look at it

But if that's true then there is no sound
on any other planets that we can see
no matter what falls down
cuz there's never anyone around

It does all the things that make it sound
except be perceived as sound
but would it count
if someone were to set up a tape recorder?

If it's just a movement of the air
until it hits an ear
well, that's one way to look at it

If I sang this song and no one was here
would I make a sound?
Well I guess I would
cuz I'd be here, and I would hear / and I have ears

If a tree falls in the woods
and nobody's there
it still makes a sound
cuz there's animals all around

If it's just a movement of the air
until it hits an ear
well, that's one way to look at it

If a tree falls in the woods
and no one's around to hear it
does it make a sound?
Well, that depends
on what you consider sound
