"A New Language" as written by and Steve Howe Alan White....
Sleep will come in the morning
Just like you, I’m learning to live without
Any hope, for a warning
Of things getting worse as two by two we slip down
Could you wait for redemption?
Maybe I’m more than a place in your bed
It’s a tight navigation
To fight my way into the space in your head
I’ll find a pattern of hope in us
I’ll find a reason for holding on
I’ll find a pattern of hope and hold on
We could wait for redemption
Find a word for us other than shame
We could learn a new language
And I’ll call you out by your favorite name
We could learn a new language and talk like we know

    General CommentI think is about a girl that he can't see just as a "place in his bed", and that's exactly how she see him. He wants something more and tries to find hope in that kind of relationship.
    Maybe he can't sleep and just leave his imagination goin "we could learn a new language and talk like we knew" (the best part of the song).

    General CommentMy take on this song was this:

    He is involved with a person in a relationship that is purely sexual based(Sleep will come in the morning, Maybe I'm more than a place in your bed). He wants it to be more(It's a tight navigation, to fight my way into a space in your head). In his mind he is trying to justify holding onto the relationship, but can't find a reason so he looks for a reason(Ill find a pattern of hope in us ....)

    I figure it was also possible that this was also possibly about a love affair( ...find a word for us other than shame ...)
