lyrics

THE ONLY WORDS

I’ve been up & down this house, these walls,
Have heard the stories, the triumphs, the falls
And these stairs may creak, but the silence they seek
Is the seemingly only word they can speak,

But the only words, the only words I know
Are of you, they’re of you and the stories we’ve grown

I’ve been down and out, so high, so low
I’ve been terrified when I’ve looked at you
In the stillness I find a peace of mind
But I will never give you a piece of mine

But the only words, the only words I know
Are of you, they’re of you and the stories we’ve grown

I’ve been waiting by the window, waiting by the phone
I’ve been etching an escape plan for sixty seconds on my own
And your face may be smiling, but I know what you’re hiding
There’s no way you are leaving, you're waiting for me to go

But the only words, the only words I know
Are of you, they’re of you and the stories we’ve grown

The only voice I can replicate
Is my own and the reasons to sleep create
But you can’t take my dreams, no you can’t read my thoughts
And you won’t take my freedom, of this I am sure

But the only words, the only words I know
Are of you, they’re of you and the stories we’ve grown
