Lyrics – Whisper From The Dark

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

*

Sorry I’m too late for you

It’s taken all this time to move

And how long have you waited here, but I never heard my name

I’ve been in love with photographs while you fade

Like a tourist in a gallery, keeping two feet away

But long have we been free?

*

I should have known better than to break a heart

I should have known better than to tear it apart

I should have but I couldn’t and it’s beating without a sound, not a sound

*

I saw a glimmer of a shadow and it was shimmering

I’d like to know how to get to where it was living in

And the soul of the world took a big deep breath it was hovering

In a song that washed over it all

*

And if I had it all over again I wouldn’t wait until the end

We’re here, we’re leaving it bare

I won’t miss it once more I’ll never miss it again

*

I should have known better than to break a heart

I should have known better than to tear it apart

I should have but I couldn’t and it’s beating without a sound, not a sound

I should have known better than to break a heart

I should have known better than to tear it apart

But now I hear it in a whisper from the dark, singing out

*

Call my name once more out loud

So I can hear a forgotten sound

And a touch I never knew

A hand is opening

I’ve been staring at silhouettes

But I won’t miss it again not again

And I’ll never say, Not too close to me

And you can set it all free

*

And if I had it all over again, I wouldn’t wait until the end

Whatever I was trying to find was a wasted life

There’s no safety line this time no

*

Chorus

*

I’ve been in love with photographs

I’ve been in love with photographs
