Tomberlin – unsaid Lyrics

Tomberlin – unsaid Lyrics

Left my home and a best friend
The places I could hide
For a city of six-lane highways
And lots of traffic lights
But I’m trying to grow roots here
Keep my feet on the ground
But sirens swim and circle
The shore that I have found

Well, it’s only been a few months
And I can’t tell the difference
Was I happy in the quiet?
All the open-handed distance
From the people and their parties
Where no one really talks
Distracting from the thought of you
And all those late night walks

‘Cause if I don’t call you up
Then I don’t have to feel down
And if I don’t say I miss you
Then you never have to be around
If I don’t say I love you
Then you don’t have to love me
See how simple
The unsaid keeps things?

And Lucy gave me a reading
King of Cups and Queen of Wands
And in the middle, a perfect picture
Of everything I want
And I laugh ’cause it makes sense
But something leaves me feeling wrong
I know you’re not a perfect picture
But my heart, it won’t shut off

‘Cause if I don’t call you up
Then I don’t have to feel down
And if I don’t say I miss you
Then you never have to be around
If I don’t say I love you
Then you don’t have to love me
See how simple
The unsaid
(Ooh)
