We walked along, our heads were held up high
Reached out our hands and we could touch the sky
One day we could try to speak, and lose the words
But it’s the sweetest silence I’ve ever heard

And so we could try to share our seperate songs
We could count rights we hid beside the wrongs
And in the end it’s only paragraphs and words
But they’re the sweetest words I’ve ever heard

Somewhere inside all laughter
All the nows and everafters
There’s a line we’ll hold on to
And a reason that we’ll want to
Through cracks in my voice
You give me no choice
I’m tryin’ to hang on for now
Babe, you gotta tell me how

Someday we’ll rebuild all these bridges burned
Recount the lines we threw and lessons learned
You’ll thank me for the laughs and wasted days
I’ll wonder why I tried, and why I stayed

Somewhere inside all laughter
All the nows and everafters
There’s a line we’ll hold on to
And a reason that we’ll want to
Through cracks in my voice
You give me no choice
I’m tryin’ to hang on for now
Babe, you gotta tell me how

I could pretend I care, and want to know
What’s really going on and why you had to go
You’ll come runnin’ back someday, I know you will
Fiction is strange, but truth is stranger still

Somewhere inside all laughter
All the nows and everafters
There’s a line we’ll hold on to
And a reason that we’ll want to
Through cracks in my voice
You give me no choice
I’m tryin’ to hang on for now
Babe, you gotta tell me how
