Keep Quiet

Album: One Life Stand (2010)
  • When the wind dies down and the howling stops
    The hurting starts, then I hear your name
    In this quiet time, this aching time
    I can hear your fingers on the window pane

    If I was in the dark, if I was in the light
    If we were walking through the forests of the night together
    If we were taken down, down into the heart
    Of the blackest night where we could sleep forever

    Keep quiet, I hear you
    Keep quiet, I hear you

    When you sing, I think I know more than I hear you speak
    I have to keep it close enough to me
    'Cause I don't want to disrupt all you think
    And I don't want to disturb what we keep quiet

    Baby, with these open arms I pray,
    I will not see the day without you
    Homeless is the driving wind
    And I will run away with him without you, without you
    Without you, without you
    Without you

    When you sing, I have to keep it close just as a hymn
    And in your breath I know just what you sing
    And spoken words might not be all we speak
    'Cause in our lungs there's something that we keep quiet Writer/s: ALEXIS BENJAMIN TAYLOR, JOSEPH GODDARD
