my mind has gone here and there
gone loony, topsy-turvy everywhere
oh if only I can express it to ease my torment
but the words left me at the perfectly worst moment
my heart got confused: should it beat fast or pound in slow-mo?
I don’t really have a choice, it will still beat for you
must it wander, my sight or should I shut it really tight?
it doesn’t really matter, either way it will still be you that I’ll see
should I lie flat and sleep or should I walk halfway around the world and leave?
it’s pointless ’cause you’d be in my dreams anyway, and you’re like the air where there’s no escaping free
should my mouth be kept shut? I cant. I’d bloat, burst, and die!
but words never reach my lips when I open them, it’d just get high and dry
what could be much worse than going through Dante’s hell?
it’s when I can do nothing but stare!
but I can’t, I really can’t just stare
with someone so lovely and wonderful as you
I just can’t let you go away
I’ve got to let you know and hear
even if it means ripping myself apart
to make audible the silent words from my heart

I whacked my head against the wall
Blood gushes out, my brains they fall
My blood and brains are soiled and spilled
But never a single word ever dripped
I searched high and low to hither and yonder
Sought from within and without for that one answer
I turned the lexicon upside and down under
But they stood bare and stale devoid of meaning and matter
Oh how cruel can you be,
For casting this wicked spell on me?!
For suffering a silent awe
Immobile body and a dropped jaw?
Your beauty it sucked the breath out of me
Now I’m a lifeless prince in front of his princess’ majesty
Come my lady, set my tongue free and touch my face
And drown me with your kisses and your sweet embrace!
