about

This song is for those times in life when everything is left unsaid because all the words fall short, the truth is known but its inexpressible. Deeply felt but just far enough out of our reach to skirt definition.

lyrics

you can say it as you please
any words you like
I’ll know what you mean
you just gotta say it right

of all the words to choose
none of them are nice
so leave a little out
and say it with your eyes

I’ve got all day long
for you to sing your song
the words we choose are wrong
to stand for what we want

take a little piece of me on your way
find out where you’re going and leave me to stay
it isn’t what it is or what never was
its only who we are and how we choose love

if you fall and get more than a banged up knee
you can call, and get more than the answering machine
all in all we're in the big bull run
when I fall, it's the bull that's done
