I can tell you without words
That you mean more than anything I've ever conceived.
And that as soon as you turn around...
I'm no older than ten
Watching those I need, pack their bags to leave me...
I can tell you without meaningless words, that may as well be lies
That when I look up at you
I memorise every thought that passes through your hard eyes
And that in those moments
When you pretend for me, that you need me there
I hide my head in your chest because tears escape my lids.
I can tell you in the silence
That I find shelter undercover these trees
When I'm whispering into your ear
And theres that half smile in your lips
In your jacket I'm more secure...
Than I've ever felt in any four walls...
I dont need words
Because you know, that everything I want
Everything thats hurt me, and tore me apart
Every person thats pushed me down
And every time my dead hearts stopped
And the way I feel about you
Is in my wet eyes, Its all in the dirty stained face
That you hold tight between your warm hands.
Underneath these trees, on the damp ground.
