Don't Say Anything

Don't Say Anything

1 min 146 1 min 146

Hush

Don’t say anything

You don’t need to,

Listen to the wind walking

And rustle up the leaves,

Listen to your heart trying to stop beating so wildly,

Listen to your breath try to steady itself,

And the blood under your skin try to love your veins.


From the other side of the room, Hozier tells you to fall more in love with a stranger,

So you fall in love with yourself each day,

Because there’s just something so tragic

About you, 

There's something so magic about you,

And when he turns to silence,

You know he’s crawling home to her, from the grave that can’t hold his body down.


The birds outside are trying hard to not fly away from their beloved nests,

The cars zoom past, each in their own race,

The sky is paler than usual, I wonder who is it mourning,

Your window is all you need, to connect with the world outside

And when you don’t feel like it, don’t hesitate to shut down the panes,

Time is all yours now, so choose which self you want to be today,

The masks are all lying in wait.
