Sometimes when we’re too tired to speak
And when it’s early morning
I hear you talking in your sleep
You think you guard the silence of the deep

And sometimes if it’s early morning
If it’s too dark to see your hands
I watch the dryness of your mouth
And know that nothing will come out

We feel each other change direction distantly
We’re breathing water in like swimmers lost at sea

Sometimes if it’s too dark for words
You wake from dreams that I have left you
If I can’t speak I say don’t cry don’t cry don’t cry it’s just the night

But then I scare myself with thinking quietly
That it’s my own silence I’m guarding carefully
That when your eyes are fully open
That when your hopes are broken
It’s you who’ll be the one to leave me
