And the faint sound of movement from below told her she was not the only one.
In the distance, she could hear the faint sound of running water.
Off to my right I could hear faint sounds of men talking.
But all she could hear was the faint sound of the television in the apartment next door.
He had heard a faint sound from the front of the apartment.
