Taking Tongues

I know you’re down,
and that’s okay,
but it is hard to be there for you
when we are so far away,
Don’t take my tongue,
it’s mine to have,
and there is many a thing that you say
that has come from my mouth,
Sometimes we need to speak our minds,
whether it’s just
or it’s just a reaction that’s over the line, Oooooh, don’t lose yourself,
oooohh in someone else
Oooooh, don’t lose yourself,
oooohh in someone else
You know I’m here,
if you need words,
it isn’t space or language
or time that makes this thing work,
I look at you,
through painted eyes,
I am projecting an image of you
that is idealised



Sometimes we need
to speak our minds,
whether it’s just
or it’s just a reaction that’s over the line
For him it means love,
for her it means less,
for them it means this,
for others I can only guess,
It keeps his mind on,
it gives her mind rest,
for them it means this,
or others I can only guess,
For him it means love,
for her it means less,
for them it means this,
for others I can only guess,
It’s keeps his mind on,
it gives her mind rest,
for them it means this,
for others I can only guess,
Oooooh, don’t lose yourself,
oooohh in someone else
Oooooh, don’t lose yourself,
oooohh in someone else
