Speak To Me

Meet me in the in-between
With frozen lips and gasoline
The promise of the day is what you bring
It's the strangest thing

Burning brides and idle hands
Can't keep us from the things we planned
The promise of a song is on the air
What it's like to never care

Fall into the song and dance
Of holding out for happenstance
But I don't wanna take that chance
So come and speak to me
Sweet surrender on the line
Now it's time to say "I'm fine"
We'll see each other one more time
C'mon and speak to me

Throwin' stones and palindromes
Will keep us from the things we own
The promise of a life is what we share
And will you ever care?

Won't you come and stand with me
The one above will set you free
The promise of the day you'll see
So come and speak to me.
