Say It

the silence calls
a distance so deep and blue
a shadow across the moon
why won't you?

say it, say it
and I will believe it
say it, save me
join the pieces
bit by bit

as patience falls
you leave me without a clue
as you weave your grey cocoon
why don't you?

say it, say it
and I will believe it
say it, save me
join the pieces
bit by bit

the empty walls deceive me
but truth shines through
the colors will fade too soon
why can't you?

say it, say it
and I will believe it
say it, save me
join the pieces
bit by bit

Demo Version Lyrics

we choose to be
forgiving
to bend
or let it break
one more choice

say it, say it
live it and breathe it
say it, save me
join the pieces
bit by bit

we want to be loving
yet lock all our doors
one more choice

say it, say it
live it and breathe it
say it, save me
join the pieces
bit by bit

we make a show at caring
yet turn our eyes within
one more chance

say it, say it
live it and breathe it
say it, save me
join the pieces
bit by bit
