Track Name: What Am I Supposed To Say
It's a strange and special thing
Like two lovers overheard
Like red wings on a black bird
Such a story I have to tell
For I knew where I was bound
And the wonder when I found
My debt was paid
What am I supposed to say?

Let me tell you what I believe
Every beating heart is enough
I swear love is love is love
But every time I see
The disappointment in your eyes
I know you think that I
Have turned away
What am I supposed to say?

It's a strange and special thing
Like dew on a spider’s web
Like something that I read
And I try not to despair
But I fear I've come undone
If you think you're the only one
Who can be saved
What am I supposed to say?

Take a breath and turn the page
Break the bread and pour the wine
Maybe all we need is time
But I'll tell you what I know
We are just as we're meant to be
And if I'm finally on my knees
Trying to pray
What am I supposed to say?
