Just a sound in your head, tug a tickle from the edge of your memory
A tap on the shoulder, a dance and you’re older, better do as your told till it’s over

One more silent bet, you better watch what you wish for
you know how the weather can’t make up her mind any more, I never go out at night unescorted

You know you never meant for this to go no where
Go ahead and call me out for looking at my hands

What you found in your bed, bitter spatters on the halls of recollections
words that get spoken such sly little tokens, what did you do when you found out you were broken

You know you never meant for this to go no where
Go ahead and call me out for falling through with plans

it's just a handful of red
i heard a whistle
did a little bird told
commenced to singing, or mentioned a secret
those things you whispered, yes, you knew they would believe it
or in another's words you know you oughta leave it
but as you're so inclined, you'll choose the disagreement
because it's just a little sound in your head
