If I had one thing to say
Would I say the words I need to say
Or would my voice catch in my throat
And softly fade away
Among these hallways where these hands are held
And letters where the heart is shelled
And the smile underneath the words
Where I said I loved you too

These are the secrets
And the words we can't repeat
Backwards the direction moves the ground beneath our feet
Back and forth among the lies
The promises we keep (all broken)
Steps we take and bonds we break
Are graves we dig this deep

And as I drive alone tonight
Another hearse, another sight
Another limo in the dark
Another tale tonight
Because it's all I see in empty eyes
In bluer blood and grayer skies
And every word I ever said that you threw back at me

We lie awake in sleepless dreams
And silently we cry (thank you)

I'm letting go
But I will not be the one who falls this time
Because this satisfaction is momentary
And I use my words and actions
As a lens, and never a mirror
I smiled because you loved me
And although you called me gravity
It is strange that I alone felt the effects

Can you hear me now?
