lyrics

I went to write my love down
I went to write my love down
I went to speak a word for what I feel

But my love cannot be spoken
And my heart resists their tokens
My love cannot be spoken and be the same thing
My love has not a voice that is the same thing

So there’s no real way of knowing
A melody does its own thing
There’s no real way of knowing that that’s my truth

What if I’m just pretending
My love is still unattended/ the words just come-a-rending
What if I’m just pretending to feel this

But I went to write my love down
I meant to write my love down
I went to write my love down
I went to write my love down
But what if I’m just pretending so you feel it?
