View Full Version : To Astound (My Words Are Dead)

03-24-2010, 02:45 PM
Hey everyone, heres a song i wrote recently. any suggestions for titles/keys?


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


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


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


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


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
