lyrics

Is there something you'd like to say?

Your silence is not comforting me.

I want to know what's on your mind.

I'm aware our love is swinging in the balance.

I'm aware it's dangling slightly, by a thread.

But, at least I try.

To be a loving friend,

to reach you in your need.

Even if it's not perceived to be recieved.



Am I talking in some ancient foreign language?

Or are you just as empty as the air?



We cling to the promises we break,

and push through the fires we create,

skipping rocks across the water counting the ripples they make.

We try to erase what's in our minds

and attempt to swallow all our pride

skipping rocks across the water hoping they reach the other side.



Though talk is cheap to me, I prefer that I hear you speak.

Words to expel my faltering belief.

It is clearly just this weak communication

blanketing the resolve in my soul.

But, at least I try.

Before buckling beneath the weight

though, clearly, I provide more than I take.

If there's any consolation left to hand out.

Then, there's nothing left for me to call my own.



We cling to the promises we break,

and push through the fires we create,

skipping rocks across the water counting the ripples they make.

We try to erase what's in our minds

and attempt to swallow all our pride

skipping rocks across the water hoping they reach the other side.
