CHAPTER 1
Who says the words with my mouth?
Who looks out with my eyes?
Who hears the morning dove first?
And only then the silence of the night?

I’ve tried everything with a clue
I’ve turned left seven times
But as soon as I woke up again
I realized I might as well have turned right.

Oh! Could the –
Answer come on this credit card?
My name stamped in from behind
If that is really all we are
Looks like I’ve wasted a lifetime…

CHORUS
So I will keep this music a secret.
The chords & the keys will be my diary
holding melodies to tangle up my demons,
and I will only sing when I need them.

CHATPER 2
Try it!
Walkin’ quick toward the stadium,
or out a bus window.
Everything close to you moves fast,
but all the rest of it goes sloooow.

And ain’t that just like the seasons,
Or a bedroom full of steam?
There’s an abundance of bitterness
Any time you’re looking for something sweet.

But you –
Can’t think about it all that much,
Or you’ll never fall asleep.
Yeah you’ll be –
Standing in that Monday mirror
Still waiting for the end of the week.

You’re –
Better off with an empty mind,
yea better keep your conscience clean;
On those long miles of boredom
broken only with breaths of nicotine.

Yea I saw the pictures on Facebook,
But no, I didn’t go.
I had already buried her in the past,
no need to watch her decompose.

No this –
Happiness is not for the weak.
I’ll tell you it takes some work.
To only remember things that make it better,
instead of all the stuff that makes it worse.

I’m getting pretty good though –
Sometimes I surprise myself.
If she kissed me today,
I’d be surprised if she couldn’t tell.

CHORUS
So I will keep this music a secret.
The chords & the keys will be my diary
holding melodies to tangle up my demons,
and I will only sing when I need them.

Yah I will keep this song a secret
so from the start to the end
you’ll hear sweet silence
and it will quiet
all of my demons
and I will only
sing when I need them.
