In this dream
It is as easy as it seems
I put you away at the end of the day
In this dream

There are two hands untangling
The knots in my throat
But they won't go away

So what about you
Whatever you say
Why can't it be true
Whatever you say

But this is no dream
You are the deaf ear listening
I know what it means to be seen
And not heard

It's no dream
You are the blinded eye observing
Open my mouth
You can finger your way to the words

I'm talkin' 'bout you
Whatever you say
Why can't it be true
Whatever you say

There are some things I must let go
I must let go
I must let them go
Just keep on tellin' me I told you so
I know I know I know I know
Whatever you say

I fall into bed
The whole horizon's turning red
Writing our names with a needle and a thread
Stitching the clouds

As if the wounded sky had bled
All of these words that will never be said
Without you
Whatever you say
Why can't it be true
Whatever you say
