Lyrics – No More Words

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

*

Plan another face

Wait until it’s safe

Build a story and I’ll stay out of sight

Hour later on

Take another page

Into the night

*

Forget the words they’re sinking in gravity

We can’t wait forever until the end

No more words ’cause it’s now or it’s never then

Blink and it’s gone

*

I’m counting numbers till I’m ready to walk outside

It’s never safe until you know and you know it well

If I could see then I’d be with you wouldn’t I

And if my eyes were open then I’d leave it all now

*

Forget the words they’re sinking in gravity

We can’t wait forever until the end

No more words ’cause it’s now or it’s never then

Blink and it’s gone

*

And the time is never right for a taste of life, no, it flies

So no more waiting for permission to shine

I’ll take the map and the plan and drop them out of my hands so

What am I waiting for?  I’m looking everywhere but at the open door

*

Forget the words they’re sinking in gravity

We can’t wait forever until the end

No more words ’cause it’s now or it’s never then

Blink and it’s gone

*

And it’s all

In the blink of an eye

Just an eighty-year life

But can we sit with the scars revealed under the light?

And I’ll tell all my secrets

But please don’t fade into the background

Keep it all plainly in sight

Don’t say a word oh no don’t
Don’t say a word – I won’t

*
