No Words
Words and music by Anne Stott


I remember clearly when you first walked away
You don't remember when you said you'd always stay
We never got our stories to tell the same tale
The more that we said the less love was felt

Over and over and over again
You said your words into the din
You made your case you tried so hard
But all your words just closed my heart

Your words my words
No words were the right words
Words left on the table, words on the floor
We lost the words love had made us for
Words left on the table, words on the floor
We lost the words love had made us for

They came to me scrambled
They came to me confused
They came to me in pockets
Of light and then diffused
Your words came on arrows
That tried to pierce my chest
I built my armor with pride
And wore it long after you left

Your words my words
No words were the right words
Your words my words
No words were the right words
Words left on the table, words on the floor
We lost the words love had made us for
Words left on the table, words on the floor
We lost the words love had made us for

I still fight with you sometimes in my head
You still ignore me like I'm dead
Maybe one day the end will be over
Then some new words can help us win this war

Your words my words
No words were the right words
Your words my words
No words were the right words
Words left on the table, words on the floor
We lost the words love had made us for
Words left on the table, words on the floor
We lost the words love had made us for
