everytime i sing it sounds like silence
what's the sweetest thing you've heard?
think of it when i part my lips to speak
then maybe you'd finally fall in love with me

i'm too tired to run away
even if i wasn't i would stay
what's your favorite song?
if i sang it would you sing along?

did you mean what you just said?
or am i hearing words in my head?
i wish you could sit here with me
then at least i could die happy

if i lost my head, would you give me yours?
i'll give it back when mine returns
i just want to learn your thoughts
and all the secrets that you forgot

when i sit up my words fall down
can you hear me way up there?
the elevator is broken, try the stairs
too bad when i sing it sounds like silence
