"Tip of My Tongue" as written by and John Hiatt....
An empty house
Is the only thing standin'
Between our lives
And the speed of sound

Some words flew out
And made a crash landin'
No love survived
Not a trace could be found

[Chorus:]
I broke your heart
With the back of my mind
From the tip of my tongue
To the end of the line

I walked away
And you stood there tremblin'
Like a leaf
In the autumn chill

Now this house won't say no
What I'm still rememberin'
Three angry words
And a love that they killed

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
You couldn't say how much it hurt you
And I couldn't see the damage I'd done
Till I watched the greatest love I've known
All come down to a slip of the tongue

Well, I'd take it back
But time won't let me
No, time just takes
You further away

I watched you pack
A house full of memories
Where did you go
Lord, what did I say?

[Chorus]
