lyrics

Speak My Heart

The words we use don't speak our truths.
It's lost in translation, left out of the loop.
Lost somewhere in our thoughts, waiting for someone to decipher the lock.
I feel like I'm trapped and I want to shout.
I start to open my mouth, but the wrong words get out.
I wish I had been better to you, because the way that you love me makes me wish I was new.
The way that you love me makes me wish I was you.

If I could speak my heart, I'd break it apart for you.
If I could speak my heart you would see how it bleeds for you.

I need you to see what you mean to me.
Take back the cold things I told you, that you know I don't mean.
I will be your light in the dark, embracing tomorrow with hope in our hearts. Facing tomorrow, we open our thoughts.

If I could speak my heart, I'd break it apart for you.
If I could speak my heart you would see how it bleeds for you.

But I never say what I ought to say when we're face to face. I never say what I want to say.
I never say what I ought to say when we're face to face. I never say what I want to say, until it's too late and I've missed my shot.

If I could speak my heart, I'd break it apart for you.
If I could speak my heart you would see how it bleeds for you.

The words we use don't speak our truths.
It's lost in translation, left out of the loop.
Lost somewhere in our thoughts, waiting for someone with hope in our hearts.
