Calm - Maximo Park

How many words did you come up with today?
How many words do you want to hear tonight?
You flare up but beneath lies defeat.
I see your eyes now and they are calm.

I've answered enough phones for one life
I've worn too many ties around my neck

I wake up and I find a trace of you there.
So sullen
Your words haunt the air
I wake up and I find a trace of you there.
So sullen

Taking long walks in perfect silence.
Joined together in useless harmony.
Your hard breath means that you're upset.
An overheated Northwest bliss.

But I've answered enough phones for one life
I've worn too many ties around my neck

Just wait and see.
I don't know much about bravery
But I'll raise you up with my bad jokes and loose promises.
She said to think of her when I'm alone
But I'm never alone
When I want to be.

I wake up and I find a trace of you there.
So sullen
Your words haunt the air
I wake up and I find a trace of you there.
So sullen
Your words haunt the air
Your words haunt the air
