Lyrics

We’re breaking down at the speed of silence Can’t seem to turn it around Neither of us wants to start the conversation I guess because we’re both too proud They say that joy and sorrow are two sides of the coin And it just keeps coming up tails All this tension, eggshell apprehension A coffin waiting on the nails The weight of things unsaid will someday come to bear The pressure that it brings The weight of things unsaid We’ve been reduced to blank stares across the table One time we were shooting sparks Now we lay in bed not sleeping, barely even speaking Like we’re strangers in the dark If we had any guts we’d just admit that it’s over But neither wants to take the time Of going the struggle to find ourselves another To tell all of our secrets and lies The weight of things unsaid will someday come to bear The pressure that it brings The weight of things (unsaid) And I’m just trying to remember How we ever got together Can’t see anything here to be saved Oh no The weight of things unsaid will someday come to bear The pressure that it brings The weight of things unsaid Dave Sills: vocals, acoustic guitar, Chamberlin flute Scott Stevenson: electric piano Gerald Dowd: drums Tom Jancauskas: bass Tommi Zender: electric guitar, ambient guitar loops
