  • Hold your tongue
    Hold it tight
    Or we'll be destined to fall
    Like the sun did tonight
    Leave it out, 'cause it might
    Take the both of us down before we get it right

    Oh I know just what you're thinking
    But if we ever let it go
    I see us slipping away
    Starting to fade
    Crumbling down till we both hit the ground
    You know if we never say
    We'll never crash and burn,
    'Cause love is a four letter word

    Looking back, now I see
    Seeing just how it feels to cause such misery
    All I want is to keep this moment alive
    Featuring you and me
    And I know just what you're thinking
    But if we ever let it go

    I see us slipping away
    Starting to fade
    Crumbling down till we both hit the ground
    You know if we never say
    We'll never crash and burn
    'Cause love is a four letter word

    I am afraid of losing all that we had now
    A four letter word
    It could all get ruined
    If it's ever said out loud

    Slipping away
    Starting to fade
    Crumbling down till we both hit the ground
    You know if we never say
    We'll never crash and burn
    'Cause love is a four letter word

    I see us slipping away
    Starting to fade
    Crumbling down till we both hit the ground
    You know if we never say
    We'll never crash and burn
    'Cause love is a four letter word
