my mouth it wasn't always empty
my hands they weren't always tied
your pose, it was an awkward courtsey
my shirt had never felt so tight
is this what it is?
its all a matter of time
this is what it is
theres a difference what you have and what you leave behind

what you dont lose, what you dont take, what you cant fake
its all a matter of time
what you dont lose, what you dont take, what you cant fake
these are cowards words and these words are mine

my teeth they weren't always crooked
my eyes, they didnt always lie
your voice, it spoke to me like thunder
my clothes would nver fit right

this is what it is
its all a matter of time
is this what it is?
theres a difference what you have and what you leave behind


what you dont lose, what you dont take, what you cant fake
its all a matter of time
what you dont lose, what you dont take, what you cant fake
these are cowards words and these words are mine


what you dont lose, what you dont take,
what you cant fake
its all a matter of time
what you dont lose, what you dont take, what you cant fake
these are cowards words and these words are mine


what you dont lose, what you dont take, what you cant fake
its all a matter of time
what you dont lose, what you dont take, what you cant fake
these are cowards words and these words are mine

what you dont lose, what you dont take, what you cant fake
its all a matter of time
what you dont lose, what you dont take, what you cant fake
these are cowards words and these words are mine

    General CommentCan't believe there's be no comments on this one !! Absolutely brilliant song!

    Anyway.....I think the song is about being stuck in a situation where your too sacred to break out the mould and speak up. The cowards words, is saying nothing and doing nothing about it. It being a matter of time before something has to change !!

    Not too sure......but it's a great song and really goes deep !!

    General CommentI agree one of my favourite Dykeenies songs, the lyrics are so powerful!

    I agree its about being to afraid to speak out, if you don't tell the one you love how you feel then you will lose them forever

    "my mouth it wasn't always empty
    my hands they weren't always tied"

    That implies to me he's saying I have no words or actions to convey how I feel about you
