WORDS I COULDN’T SAY BY LEIGHTON MEESTER

WORDS I COULDN’T SAY BY LEIGHTON MEESTER

LYRICS

In a book, in a box, in the closet
In a line, in a song I once heard
In a moment on a front porch late one June
In a breath inside a whisper beneath the moon
There it was at the tips of my fingers
There it was on the tip of my tongue
There you were and I had never been that far
There it was the whole world wrapped inside my arms
And I let it all slip away
What do I do now that you’re gone
No back up plan, no second chance
And no one else to blame
All I can hear in the silence that remains
Are the words I couldn’t say
There’s a rain that will never stop fallin’
There’s a wall that I tried to take down
What I should have said just wouldn’t pass my lips
So I held back and now we’ve come to this
And it’s too late now
What do I do now that you’re gone
No back up plan, no second chance
And no one else to blame
All I can hear in the silence that remains
Are the words I couldn’t say
What do I do now that you’re gone
No back up plan, no second chance
And no one else to blame
All I can hear in the silence that remains
Are the words I couldn’t say

You’re gone now
not knowing how I feel
The words I couldn’t say
The truth so real
Love you so much
always have
memories in my closet
Our first date, and laugh
I cry every night
your always on my mind
The words I couldn’t say
have been left behind
tears of regret
I will always feel
Your now with another
the words not said so real

Chill finds my heart frozen
these words map my road
why couldn’t I stop tears
you made for us?

Words touched us both
days we would write
how do we find our way
these memories so dark.

I know you love me
your mind a snowstorm
does sunlight warm us now
casting on tomorrow’s road?

Judge not my faults
when prudence calls
i make amends
around the bend
scrambling to make sense
with words left unsaid
who is to blame?
sorry’s and secrets
ablaze in moonshine haze..
i miss you forevermore
in the jasmine scent
that wraps up
this eerie silence
of the night.
