Something to Say

from by Mike Stocksdale

lyrics

Late at night when I’m just a sucker
Cold and dark, alone and down on my luck
You show up bright in the back of my dim head
I push you out, but your feet are cast in a strong lead

If I had something to say I would have said it by now

Hold me close, but stay at a distance
Far enough, to weaken my resistance
You just smile, lively although I’m dead pan
Broken down, swayed by the scent of your soft skin

If I had something to say I would have said it by now

What’s draggin this out? Has that cat got my tongue again?
We both know it’s wrong, but it’s alright to be feeling it, isn’t it?

Stop and stare it’s all up to me now
You made moves, I never thought I would see now
Darkened room, fixed eyes on the broken
All these words, but my mouth won’t seem to open

If I had something to say I would have said it by now
