lyrics

Nothing We Say
Courtney Hartman


I try to travel round as light as I can
I only carry my body for its sentimentality
It was the first thing my mother gave to me
God bless her soul

I never let myself fall hard
Too afraid to make the same mistakes I've already made
I only stay so long in the same place
Then I carry on

I can love you today
But don't ask for tomorrow
Don't ask if tomorrow I can stay
With the sun's arising I've got to be travelin'
But we can make a night of it again someday

And in the hour before goodbye
When nothing we say seems to hold its own weight
And the click of the clock like rattling chains
Say it's time to go

I can love you today
But don't ask for tomorrow
Don't ask if tomorrow I can stay
With the sun's arising I've got to be travelin'
But we can make a night of it again someday

You and I like the northern geese
Never at home and never at ease
When we're on the ground

So hold me here for another night
I will say what I can but the touch of my hand
Speaks more than the words that slip my mind
Failing me again

I can love you today
But don't ask for tomorrow
Don't ask if tomorrow I can stay
With the sun's arising I've got to be travelin'
But we can make a night of it again someday
