Hush don't speak a word about the dreams that I live for
It hurts to reach you when I'm down
Don't speak again, I'm still waiting for my turn
It hurts to reach you when I'm down

My dreams are growing into
Frustrations when I hear your voice
(Feeding me 'til I'm choking, feeding me 'til I'm choking)
My ears are ringing louder
Repeating words that bring me down
(Ringing, my ears are bleeding, ringing, my ears are bleeding)

So hold your breath and spare me
The pointless conversation, I'm running out of patience
Don't blame me for trying to-

Hush don't speak a word about the dreams that I live for
It hurts to reach you when I'm down
Don't speak again, I'm still waiting for my turn
It hurts to reach you when I'm down

As you are moving forward
I feel as if I can't catch up
(Trying so hard to reach you, trying so hard to reach you)
I'm stuck here at the bottom
You're too high up to come back down
(Trying so hard to reach you, trying so hard to reach you)

So hold your breath and spare me
The pointless conversation, I'm running out of patience
Don't blame me for trying to-

Hush don't speak a word about the dreams that I live for
It hurts to reach you when I'm down
Don't speak again, I'm still waiting for my turn
It hurts to reach you when I'm down

Silence your harsh words my dear
My ears are ringing of this
I can't stop thinking of it
(I try to reach you but I fall)

Hush don't speak a word about the dreams that I live for
It hurts to reach you when I'm down
Don't speak again, I'm still waiting for my turn
It hurts to reach you when I'm down

    General CommentAnd I can't believe no one commented on this yet :( It's such a lovely song!

    I think this song is about how people don't listen...and for the people who's just trying to help you, they just won't let you. Once someone tries to help you [reach you] you push them away, make excuses (Don't speak again, I'm still waiting for my turn; and The pointless conversation, I'm running out of patience)

    Just my opinions.

    General CommentCorrected the lyrics a bit, to how they actually sing it:

    General Commentfor me, this song is about someone who has a dream but her partner doesn't being supportive to her.

    and 'it hurts to reach you when i'm down' means that when she's stressed or messed up, her partner is not always around to comfort her. thats why she prefer for him to be silent than being unsupportive.

    they're rock better than paramore! duh! haha.
