Lyrics

Only between friends
Do these silences make sense
Or can a silence feel like reassurance
Only a past tense
And unsees 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 an 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 iI?d do that
The power?s mine

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

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?
