lyrics

these walls are thin, the paper creaks
and in my house i cannot sleep
but don't say i say, don't say i say i'm coming home

my mouth won't move and my limbs won't shake
this could have been a beautiful date
but don't say i say, don't say i say i'm going home

ohohohohohohohohahohohahahaoh

my pen is drawn and my hammer is out
but i never said i'd build this whole house
so don't say i say, no don't say i say let's go home

the meadows roll and the rivers fold
this is a good place to grow old
but don't say i say, don't say i say this is home

cos as i write these words my lonely bones creak
and i cannot build a better box since skin doesn't keep
well what did i say - i quote the silence in my sleep
oh what did i say, well i quote the silence in my sleep

this foundation will fall as our faces turn to caverns
and isnt it funny how this world turns
but don't say i say no don't say i said it first

we're all just as lost, i know im not the only one
who follows the rising and the setting of our sun
but don't say i say no don't say i said it first

cos as i write these words my lonely bones creak
and i cannot build a better box since skin doesn't keep
well what did i say - oh i quote the silence in my sleep
well what did i say, oh i quote the silence in my sleep

but dont say i say no don't say i say no dont say i say
no dont say i say i'm coming home.
