Swallow

about

One of the first songs I wrote for this album.

lyrics

Words can be like razor blades
Dashing through the room
I'm afraid of words
Spelling out my doom

But you won't swallow me
with your eyes of fire
No you won't swallow me
I wish that we could cry

When words get weighed on a silver platter
I never seem to get them out right
Words and eyes can be a deadly combination
When all you do with words is fight
