lyrics

"The Speed of Sound"
© ℗ 2013 C. Rose

from the moment these words leave my mouth
until they reach your ear
lies an instant in a space that's too small to know it's even there
is it even there
________

now I'm waiting for a signal
that can tell me all i need to know
will the answer be revealing
or encrypted in some secret code
will i ever know
________

the speed of sound
doesn't recognize
how the words we choose will hurt us
subtlety will not preserve us
________

how can something i can't even perceive
just leave me frozen here
with my heart in my hand and my with head so filled with doubt and fear
why is nothing clear
________

the speed of sound
doesn't recognize
how the words we choose will hurt us
subtlety will not preserve us

the speed of sound
is beyond control
suddenly i find i'm saying all the words that hurt the most
at the speed of sound
________

from the moment these words leave my mouth
until they reach your ear
lies an instant in a space that's too small to know it's even there
but i know it's there
it's as real as here
where i live in fear
________

of the speed of sound
that doesn't recognize
how the words we choose will hurt us
subtlety will not preserve us

the speed of sound
is beyond control
suddenly i find i'm saying all the words that hurt the most
at the speed of sound
the speed of sound
