Pop music vs. theology, part x

In the "Kimberly Thinks Too Hard about Song Lyrics" series, we have the Amy Grant single released this year "Better Than A Hallelujah."  It's pretty catchy.  It just has this one troublesome bit that I can't get past.

"We pour out our miseries;
God just hears a melody."

Erm, really?  Is that really what God hears when we pour out of hearts to him?  He doesn't hear what we say, just noise?  No signal, just noise?

I've tried to just not think about that line.  I've tried to get wrapped up in the emotion of the song and what it's trying to say, not what it does say. 

Aaaaaand I just can't.

Any thoughts?
