I wanted to help you
Escape from the day
I couldn’t speak to you
It might hurt my raiser’s heart

I couldn’t speak to you
For what could I say
These words seem obscene now
In the light to the raiser's heart

Well the words aren’t coming, no the words aren’t coming
By day they are far too stark
Well the words mean nothing ‘til they turn to fire
By who we become after dark

You know we have nothing
By silence of day
I couldn’t speak to you
I’ve nothing to say to you

Well the words aren’t coming, no the words aren’t coming
By day they are far too stark
Well the words mean nothing ‘til they turn to fire
By who we become after dark

Well the words aren’t coming, no the words aren’t coming
By day they are far too stark
Well the words mean nothing, but there's no questioning
Just who we become after dark

You know, you know
We’ve got no reason to speak
Come the sun
When it’s done
We’ve no reason to speak

Well the words aren’t coming, no the words aren’t coming
By day they are far too stark
Well the words mean nothing, ‘til they turn to fire
By who we become, oh

Well the words aren’t coming, no the words aren’t coming
By day they are far too stark
Well the words mean nothing, but there’s no questioning
Just who we become after dark
