'Little Sounds of Pain' is the 2nd single from Isobel's third album 'In My Garden' and tells the story of Isobel's experiences of tinnitus, which she has suffered from for the last two and a half years. Therefore, all profits from the release will go to The British Tinnitus Association (www.tinnitus.org.uk).

The song is released alongside a podcast from The Dialogue Project, the brain-child of Karl James, for which Isobel discusses how tinnitus has effected her life. You can listen to the podcast here:



There's a song inside of me,
And it murmers restlessly,
Beneath the sounds of the world around me.
Always present in my mind,
It sings to me all the time,
A mournful song with no melody.

Should I sing it out?
Would it free me?

This song is hard to understand,
It can be loud as a brass band,
Or quiet as one grain of sand.
It gets jealous when I hear,
The sounds outside my ears,
It wants to sing out clear.

Should I sing it out?
Would it free me?
