lyrics

You offer up your silence, you offer up your words
Cigarettes and coffee were a past time for this bird
Now we don’t have to run away from the center of our bodies
Now we can just have fun, we’ll hurt nobody

Cigarettes and coffee were a past time for this bird
Until we left college and we discovered some new words
We don’t have to beg on the streets anymore
We don’t have to beg for each other’s hard earned sores

I love you like the ocean, but with a little more volume
Cause I got swept in the motion of each pose that you would consume
I know I’ve written this song at least one time before
I know it won’t be long till I find another you

You offer up your silence, you offer up your words
And I love your grace; you move just like a bird
I know that you aren’t mine; I know that you’ll be just fine
The trumpeter behind me tells the secrets that are on my mind
It may be sweet sad pretty but he speaks the hard truth
I’m gonna live in the city, I’m gonna live in this phone booth

Cigarettes and coffee were the past times for us birds
You offer up your silence, you offer up your words

You offer up your silence, you offer up your words
Cigarettes and coffee were a past time for our world
Gone away
