lyrics

He's got me biting my tongue and I don't like it
He says "Hush! Hush! Keep quiet!", (though we're all wide awake...)
"Speak when you're spoken to. Not now, just not now.
You'll ruin the chance you've made."

Even in darkness there's moonlight to guide us
Illuminates all with a shine unsurpassed
But he's clutching my heart at his chest like it's his heart
I forget it's shape out of his grasp.

Now I'm thinking almost every waking moment of the day
How I'll return you to your rightful place.

I've been drinking too much tea (again)
Staying up past bedtime 'til who knows when.
These late-night ramblings seem so amplified
But there always there in my mind.

Pause patiently for the dust clouds to settle
Inhale. Wait. Stagnate. I want more.
The tip of the iceberg will not satisfy me
But I've faith in my dreams. I'm sure.

Now I'm thinking almost every waking moment of the day
How I'll return you to your rightful place.
