I might be politic
Or I might just grab your hand
I'm not selfish with my story
I just want something, understand

Oh, this world is not for grieving
It's not grieving for my cry
And I hate this growl inside
Yes, I hate this growl inside

And you better believe it
When I tell you that it's all growing
Until you learn to trust

Well, this wash, it wasn't easy
No, this wash just doesn't dream
It just makes the whole thing cluttered, yes
And when you've seen the sights, it's best to scream

I'm not stolen from the soulless
I'm just driven to the white
So, you really ought to catch me now
You really ought to join the fight

And if I tell you all my secrets
That you ever wanted to hear, it's
Once and not speak, once and not speak
Once and not speak

No one wants to play this
No one likes the dark
And we just checked in for higher love
Well, that's another, you like sparks

Well, I'll fly across the evening
Least, I'll smile across the hall to you
But it better not be fascinate
No, it better just be wall-to-wall

And if I tell you all my secrets
That you ever wanted to hear, it's
Once and not speak, once and not speak
Once and not speak

I'm the tired recluse, yes
And I'm tired of this courtyard
And every grateful day's the herd line

Well, the crafty were just leaving
They've forgotten how to talk
And that slither through the evening
Was just another kind of walk with me

Well, I'll tell you what you wanted
Least, I'll stunt you with my grace
And I know it's all so easy
But I just want to find your face

And if I tell you all my secrets
That you ever wanted to hear, it's
Once and not speak, once and not speak
Once and not speak
