how can you speak to me? well darling, hush now. I overheard.
It carried weightlessly. But there is weight now, with every word.
It's like we held on as tightly as the day that we were born.
At least we held on for as long as it was true.
And i chose the softest lips to kiss,
I let a piece of me get missed and lost in you.
With every breath that got away I lost myself in yesterday
to breathe through you.
So i sing quietly
I sing forgiveness, like it's what I do.
My voice is like the sea.
Some salty water, got spilt on you.
Well I just came from the coastline where the ocean knows my name
you know that water can't be tamed, when it's that blue.
And i cast my gifts from the same sea
that kept me trembling
i paid my dues.
I know that rhythm can be taught
I choose the keep the beat I've got
