How many words did you come up with today?
How many words do you want to hear tonight?
You flare up but beneath lies defeat.
I see your eyes now and they are calm.

I've answered enough phones for one life.
I've worn too many ties around my neck.

I wake up and I find a trace of you there.
So sullen, your words haunt the air
I wake up and I find a trace of you there.
So sullen

Taking long walks in perfect silence.
Joined together in useless harmony.
Your hard breath means that you're upset.
An overheated North-West bliss.

But I've answered enough phones for one life.
I've worn too many ties around my neck.

Just wait and see.
I don't know much about bravery
But I'll raise you up
With my bad jokes and loose promises.
She said to think of her when I'm alone
But I'm never alone
When I want to be.

I wake up and I find a trace of you there.
So sullen, your words haunt the air
I wake up and I find a trace of you there.
So sullen, your words haunt the air
Your words haunt the air
