lyrics

Only between friends
Do these silences make sense,
Or can a silence feel like reassurance
Only a past tense
And unseen evidence
Qualify us both as witnesses

You were a flashing light
A steady beating line
A system of measurement for keeping me in line
And now I’m a listener -
And man, it’s my honour -
You owe me nothing,
And nothing more

Oh, and when your voice starts breaking and straining
I know the songs,
Yeah, and I can sing
Oh and sing I will
until you’re beating

We have the whole night,
Incalculable time,
For you to lose your footing
Once or twice

And I’m not so tired
That I can’t give my time -
Time is not a cost I care to ask of life

Do you need reassurance?
Or comfort in silence?
Or does forgiveness need me as a audience?
I am not tired,
Not even for friendly fire
You’re working it out, man
Yeah, but you need time

And when your voice starts breaking and straining
I know the songs,
Oh yeah, and I can sing
And sing I will until you’re beating

We have the whole night,
Incalculable time,
For you to lose your footing
Once or twice

And I’m not so tired
That I can’t give my time
Time is not a cost I care to ask of life
Of life

And man, it’s not too late
To make mistakes
To change your mind
To start again
I can freeze time
Yeah I’d do that
The power’s mine
