Someone stole the easy words
away from me and you
Stripped us bare of mindless talk
and left no I.O.U.
Naked conversations
Confusion laced with pain
Feelings not so easy to explain

But we talked for hours
hard words spilling from our lips
caress the air beyond a kiss
more real somehow
than any kiss I’d ever heard before

Someone stole the language gloves
the sterile words we choose
They took the one word answers
to a simple ‘how are you?’
Somone stole our safety net
the script we had to use
and we were scared of what was left to say

No clinical conditions
exist between us two
To act the part of strangers
now beyond what we can do
It comes as a surprise to find
some thieves are angels too
For someone stole the easy words
away from me and you

    General CommentThis song makes me think about how much we use words without thinking about their meaning. When someone says "how are you?" we just say "yeah, all right" without even thinking about what we are actually saying. Here, the opposite happens, that type of speech is taken away and nothing but the scary yet beautiful truth is left.
