about

Mid-tempo pop w/ electric guitar; a wounded soul who won’t let others in.

lyrics

Speechless
Copyright 2016 Sweet Amnesia Music, ASCAP

You, given you more than I
feel I had inside
still waiting for requital

But, get nothing for my pains
These efforts all in vain
cause it seems that you've decided

my love's just another thing to take
for granted
I thought that time and tide would
open us a path but
my hope has turned to madness

You leave me speechless
You leave me speechless
You leave me out in the cold

You leave me speechless
You leave me speechless
You leave us nowhere to go

Harmony:
Don't you leave me in the cold
You leave me nowhere to go

Last night I thought I heard
a thaw inside your words
I thought the atmosphere was lifting

But today again you've changed
the rules of our engagement
gone back to your indifference

love, just one other thing that keeps interfering
all of the memories that never could heal
all got hurts that leave us reeling

You leave me speechless...

You don't have to give me the sky
I'm not asking for much
A simple reply

What are these shadows you punch
When will you see
I'm on your side

You leave me speechless
