  • Growing distance from your explanations
    We're getting deeper in this mess
    Take careful contemplation
    I'd rather be spitting blood
    Than have this silence fuck me up

    This separation, time and space between us
    For some revelation
    You didn't even care to discuss
    I'd rather be black and blue
    Than accept that you withdrew

    Aah, just tell me
    Say anything
    Anything hurts less than the quiet
    Just tell me
    Say anything
    Anything hurts less than the quiet

    Used to give each other the world, every bit
    Used to be the one you'd come to
    When it'd all go to shit
    Now I'm left here in the dust
    With the taste of broken trust

    And I don't wanna walk away
    But you left me no choice
    Only talking to myself here
    Now you muffled your voice
    I'd rather have broken bones
    And feel myself turn to stone

    Aah, just tell me
    Say anything
    Anything hurts less than the quiet
    Just tell me
    Say anything
    Anything hurts less than the quiet

    I don't mind that I know that you're wrong
    I don't mind that you think you're right
    All I want is a fight to fight
    Anything but quiet

    Just tell me
    Say anything
    Anything hurts less than the quiet Writer/s: Dann Hume, Troye Sivan Mellet
