"Someone Took The Words Away" as written by and Elvis Costello....
Poor head
Can hardly move my lips for speaking
I said
So, what is this thing I cannot explain?
I'd blame all the thing I feel but can't quite place
Perhaps they're written on my face
Someone took the words away

Why don't you speak up and say what you mean?
Summon my powers of conversation
I talk to myself
I'm fine
When you're around
Then I decline the invitation

It's strange to finally find myself so tongue-tied
A change has come over me
I'm powerless to express
Every thing I know but cannot speak
And if I try my voice will break
Someone took the words away
Someone took the words away

    General CommentOften, creative people can have trouble expressing themselves. Sometimes I feel this way myself, and when i do, i just recite myself these lyrics. It kinda comforts me i suppose. haha.
