If it's a promise then you have to let go
What you want to say could mean everything
And there's one thousand lines that you shouldn't know
I could shield you from this hurt

I knew the moment that I met you that day
When you came to me, and you took my hand
I'd do whatever I could so you'd stay
So please stay with me yeah

So speak
Subtly, subtly or I won't know
Which part of me should be getting over
Both, you and I, you and I were just too young
For eyes you set your cold heart on

So speak
Gently, gently or I won't find
Which part of you has me losing my mind
Both, you and I, you and I were just too young
For eyes you set your cold heart on

If it's a promise then you have to let go
What you want to say could mean everything
And there's one thousand lines that you shouldn't know
I could shield you from this hurt

I knew the moment that I met you that day
When you came to me, and you took my hand
I'd do whatever I could so you'd stay
So please stay with me yeah

So speak
Subtly, subtly or I won't know
Which part of me should be getting over
Both, you and I, you and I were just too young
For eyes you set your cold heart on

So speak
Gently, gently or I won't find
Which part of you has me losing my mind
Both, you and I, you and I were just too young
For eyes you set your cold heart on

And every word so hollow
Has become much too hard to follow
I could read your eyes and taste your lips
But neither one led me to this
And every night I slept alone
With both of my hands fixed on my phone
It would kill me not to hear your voice
So the stereo's on to make some noise

So speak
Subtly, subtly or I won't know
Which part of me should be getting over
Both, you and I, you and I were just too young
For eyes you set your cold heart on
(2 x’s)

So speak
Gently, gently or I won't find
Which part of you has me losing my mind
Both, you and I, you and I were just too young
For eyes you set your cold heart on

So speak
(2 x’s)
