Too many yesterdays ago
Music bound unlikely souls in nature
Not the same a common ground was walked
A friendship that defied cliche
Then a question spread like cancer
And since that day his silence hides
The things he couldn't say

So many years have come and gone
(The things he couldn't say)
Like precious treasures trampled on
(Things she couldn't say)
A fear that eats you like decay
(Things they couldn't say)
Unspoken questions drove away
The things he couldn't say

Disconnection separates, all I can do is watch
Like a spectator in a gallery of pain at arms length
Like a grief observed surreal a mannequin acceptance
Of this cruel severance pay
For all the things he couldn't say

So many years have come and gone
(The things he couldn't say)
Like precious treasures trampled on
(Things she couldn't say)
A fear that eats you like decay
(Things they couldn't say)
Unspoken questions drove away
The things he couldn't say

With hearts like finest china
And feet of solid clay
We set indefinite delays
For all the things we couldn't say

So many years have come and gone
(The things he couldn't say)
Like precious treasures trampled on
(Things she couldn't say)
A fear that eats you like decay
(Things they couldn't say)
Unspoken questions drove away
The things he couldn't say

But it's not too late
Say you'll stay forever
Say you'll stay for now
It's not too late
The things they couldn't say
