lyrics

Without a Word

Without a word
Without a voice
Punched a hole in the sound
Of the whitest noise

To say nothing
To play the game
Suffering in silence
Sounds the same

Can't call back a careless curse

But I hang on the words
That I need you to say
In the call of the birds
In the verses I pray
It's the truth of the song
And the hope of the vow
That can only be strong
When it's spoken out loud

The sigh of rain
The flood is quiet
Broke the dam in my heart
Raging blood in riot

And not of stone
And not of clay
But the tune of the moon
And the light of day

The cruelest lies are made of gold

But you hang on the words
That you need me to say
In the absence of hurt
All the sound goes away
If the spell can be broken
And the damage undone
Then by the same token
The song must be sung
