We exchanged words
Through smoke-filled mouths
And then we found our bodies
Speaking loud
And our hearts pressed against the flesh
Trading stories
Of love's pain
Doubt
And rivaling insecurities
When did we learn to speak without words?
And in tongues?
Maybe we should just stop here

    General CommentOh.
    Speaking without words, and love's nothing but pain. So, why must we strive for it?
    It's only doubt filling our minds, of something we'll never have.
    Maybe we should stop here, maybe this ending isn't so bad. Maybe we're all just a bunch of lies telling ourselves that we are people. When people are just tiny spects on this earth, with no purpose in life but to live. But live how? Live with pain, and suffering, and dying love for a lover who has yet to love you back. When all you can do is breathe, and breathing still isn't enough to survive.

    General Commentfor some reason this song just reminds me of an emotional affair, exchanging words with someone you're in love with. they're listening to each other, sharing everything, loves pain. "maybe we should just stop here", because the both of you will be hurting more than just yourselves.
