Tongue Behind My Teeth (The Staves)

I know where you're going And I see where you been Patience is a virtue And mine with you is wearing thin It's easy to sit and wait Speaking in words you've stolen From better men than you Doors they helped you open In time will cease to let you through Is it easy to stand and sigh? Bid another friend goodbye? Oh oh ooooh Oh oh ooooh Oh oh ooooh Oh oh ooooh Lights can shine too bright, dear So nobody can see Hide safe behind your light, dear But understand it won't blind me And I know it would do no good I'd hurt you if I could Oh oh ooooh See my eyes Oh oh ooooh Open wide Oh oh ooooh Speak up now Oh oh ooooh Hold your peace forever and be done Eyes down Door closed Keep quiet Growing old I know you I see you Cling to The road you ride on Homeless, more or less Skin and bone On your own I'll be alright I'm doing fine Keep my tongue behind my teeth And get gone You never were Anyone Keep your words, keep your mind I'll keep my tongue behind my teeth Tongue behind my teeth And I know it would do no good But I'd hurt you if I could Oh oh ooooh
