lyrics

The big words never make it out of my quiet little mouth
And it's clear you are confused exactly what this is all about
I string along my words, but the breadcrumbs are too small
And you don't care to climb the stairs that end in a brick wall

There's a feeling that I get like I'm going to explode
But I'm lost about how to get it out cause I was never shown
How to deal with a desire that could swallow all the rest
No wonder I'm so quiet I can barely take a breath

I think so much of you
About a mouthful a day
But it's better to put off 'til tomorrow
The unspeakable of today

Vertigo swims inside your head
When you look down far below
But it's not so much that you're afraid you'll slip
But that you'll decide to let go

Well I think if I jumped, you'd catch me
But I am no cannonball clown
And even though I would probably pull through fine
I'd sure look like a fool on the way down

I think so much of you
About a mouthful a day
But it's better to put off 'til tomorrow
The unspeakable of today

The big words never made it out of my quiet little mouth
And it's clear you are confused exactly what this is all about
I strung along my words, but the breadcrumbs blew away
And now it's late, and you're leaving,
Unless I've got something else to say
