Could We Live That Kind Of Life


If I said to you,
Those things you wanted to hear and liked...
Could we live that kind of life forever,
Together like that.
Or would there be nothing deep to express.
To get off our chests to confess.
Ever or never.
Or would we,
Have the best times to find and get...
And together,
Forever.
If we did that at our best to get it.
And together.

If I said to you I'm needing more space and distance.
Would you listen,
If I said that to you.

And if I said to you the emptiness I feel,
Is real.
Would you,
Accept.
OR would you,
Have regrets.
Or would you,
Deny the ride of the truth you begin to hear in your ears.
OR would you,
Care less who has more pride deep inside to hide.

Would you...
Deny the ride of the truth you begin to hear in your ears.
OR would you...
Care less who has more pride deep inside to deny.

Do you,
Care who has no pride to deny.
Say something!

Do you care who has no pride left to hide.
Just say something.

Do you care who has no pride to deny.
Say something!

Do you care who has no pride left to hide.
Just say something.

Say something.
Even if its simply chit-chat.
Say something.
Even if its bitterness you want to spit.
Even if its nothing like that,
I want to hear every bit of it.

If I said to you I'm needing more space and distance.
Would you listen?
Or would you...
Accept.
OR would you,
Have regrets.
OR would you,
Deny the ride of truth expressed.
OR would you feel,
Better if I up and left?
Say something.

Even if its simply chit-chat.
Say something.
Even if its bitterness you spit.
Even if its nothing like that...
I want to hear every bit of it.

Say something.
Even if its bitterness you spit.
Even if its nothing like that.
I don't want to break up and quit.
I don't want to be left doubting.
I want to hear every bit of it.
