I hesitate to say what I mean as my mind is full of doubt
I hesitate to say what I mean as I might leave something out

Words make remote objects of us
Distant islands in an ocean of sound
Words can make strangers of lovers
Disconnected by meanings they've found
One word can turn your world upside down

Silences can act like a wall
Keep the space round me empty
But silence can sometimes say more
About what things mean for me

Words make remote objects of us
Distant islands in an ocean of sound
Words can make strangers of lovers
Disconnected by meanings they've found
One word can turn your world upside down
