Lyrics

Sing me to silence, can I listen for free?

I’m just dying to leave all these thoughts that hold me.

I’d rather be held by your sweet melody

Than a mind that’s uneasy and a spirit unfree.

 

I’ve got a bottle of wine, and plenty of time.

Can you tell me your troubles? Will you listen to mine?

We’ll dance til the morning with nothing to mind

‘cept moonlit reflections in a sweet Stranger’s eyes

 

Too many words, and they’ll fail me I’m sure.

What I’d like to relay surely language ignores

To put it quite simply, I’m already yours

So be here beside me, I could want nothing more.

 

Dear Stranger I love you, and I come unafraid

Climbing into your bed, not my head for a change

Leaving all thoughts and worries for a Stranger’s soft gaze

And the silence can take us ‘til we forget our own names

 

The Silence it grows as our bodies entwine

Breathing and heartbeats in words won’t confide

But give them the silence and they’ll shout for the sky

Reason at rest, as our Spirit arrives

 

Sing me to silence, can I listen for free?

I’m just dying to leave all these thoughts that hold me.

I’d rather be held by your sweet melody.
