lyrics

Softly she spoke only words
with the press of a pen
and each passing breath
A letter to no one she wrote
at the edge of her bed
in a cloud of cigarette smoke

Only words
tossed around with a flick of the wrist
in a quaint summer town
Only words
and always last on the list
the first ones she found

"I'm leaving today" she said
with her hands in the air
at the top of the stairs
The man with his chin on the floor
stood by the door and said
"what would you do a thing like that for?"

Only words
no one can tell if its a will o the wisp
or some far away town
Only words
lost in the crowd with a stifling lisp
that would make mama proud

Well on the way to a place
where she'd find herself space
to figure things out
She'd stare out the window for days
and have conversations
with a host of old friends in her head

Only words
tossed around with a flick of the wrist
in a quaint summer town
Only words
and always last on the list
the first ones she found
