Hey everyone, heres a song i wrote recently. any suggestions for titles/keys?

VERSE 1

Something about me will give it away

That I canít say what I want to say

Jaw hangs slack as I fumble for sound

Though I know what to say to astound

But the moment passes and I hang my head

Because I canít speak, my words are dead

VERSE 2

Hans Christian Andersonís little mermaid

Gave up her voice just to try and get laid

But from one who doesnít have that to hand out

It makes no sense without a shred of doubt

That to speak is to live, to talk and converse

This drive is primary and always comes first

VERSE 3

Man from Beast, Beast from Man

A man can think, I donít think a beast can

But yet from low to high they all communicate

So why am I below these, what is this fate

Why canít I saw what I need

Is this punishment for some pre-incarnated deed

BRIDGE

Clamped down on my Lips

Jaw glued shut

Hands around my neck

And I canít say

And I canít say

What I need to say

CHORUS

Nick Androsís hands are over my sneer

Face contorts as I try and tell you dear

How much you matter, how much you mean

Always a smile and a shoulder to lean

And you always know exactly what I say

For you are the light that lights my way
