Words come out like from a gun
honed by our silver tongues
it's a sharp breath you're breathing, babe
careful you don't get stung by its hate.

Words come out until they're done
passing by our silver tongues
it's a sharp blade you're wielding still
only use it if it's a kill.

Don't tell her you're leaving
there's still time to lie
Don't tell her you're leaving
and you won't have to say goodbye.


from Forever and a Day, released November 3, 2016
