LyricsEdit

I've been trying for hours just to think of what exactly to say
I thought I'd leave you with a letter or fiery speech
Like when an actor makes an exit at the end of a play
And I've been dying for hours
Trying to fill up all the holes with some sense
I'd like to know how you faded and you threw it away
I'd like to give you all the reasons and what everything meant

Well I could tell you good-bye or maybe see you around
With just a touch of a sarcastic thanks
We started out with a bang and at the top of the world
Now the guns are exhausted and the bullets are blanks
And everything's blank

If I could only find the words then I would write it all down
If I could only find a voice I would speak
Oh it's there in my eyes so can't you see me tonight
C'mon and look at me and read 'em and weep

If I could only find the words then I would write it all down
If I could only find a voice I would speak
Oh it's there in my eyes so can't you see me tonight
C'mon and look at me and read 'em and weep

I've been whispering softly
Trying to build a cry up to a scream
We let the past slip away
And put the future on hold
Now the present is nothing but a hollowed out dream

And I've been dreaming forever hoping something would eventually come
I saw your eyes in the dark
I felt your kiss on my lips
I traced your body in the air until the bodies were numb

Well I could tell you good-bye or maybe see you around
With just a touch of a sarcastic thanks
But now the rooms are all empty and the candles are dark
The guns are exhausted and the bullets are blanks
And everything's blank

If I could only find the words then I would write it all down
If I could only find a voice I would speak
Oh it's there in my eyes so can't you see me tonight
C'mon and look at me and read 'em and weep

It's there in my eyes and coming straight from my heart
It's running silent and angry and deep
It's there in my eyes and it's all I can say
C'mon and look at me and read 'em and weep

(Read 'em and weep)
For all the hours we'll be spending alone
(Read 'em and weep)
For the dreams we'll ignore
(Running silent and deep)
And all those promises we promised to keep
They won't be kept anymore

(Read 'em and weep)
For the magic that our bodies had made
(Read 'em and weep)
For the blood that we lost
(Running silent and deep)
And all the secrets that we somehow betrayed
For whatever the cost

(Read 'em and weep)
For the memories still alive in the bed
(Read 'em and weep)
For the lies we believed
(Running silent and deep)
And all the things that can never be said
C'mon and look at me and read 'em and weep
Why don't you look at me and read 'em and weep

It's there in my eyes and coming straight from my heart
It's running silent and angry and deep
But it's here in my eyes and it's all I can say
C'mon look at me and read 'em and weep
