I can never resist a good pun.

lyrics

Radio Silence

I was awakened by the hissing of the rain
I thought of you before all of that other shit came
And it took hold and the day is just a minute old
And this room that's seen so many things
Is right now feeling miserable and cold

When we undressed, time compressed super tight
Now those hours vie with months of ordinary time, and that's not right
But I give in without a fight
And I'm fighting for the right from you
To give in without a fight another day
It just won't go away

But now you've called for radio silence
To protect yourself before the feelings get too violent
And the window pane is not misnamed
When you look out of it and wonder if you'll see her again

I've got no reception or my battery's gone dead
The only conversation's taking place inside my head
But it just stays the same, there's nothing new coming in
And if its been a sin for us to begin this amorous affair
Well my morality just really really really doesn't care
I'd come for you anywhere

But now you've called for radio silence
To protect yourself before the feelings get too violent
And the window pane is not misnamed
When you look out of it and wonder if you'll see her again
And the window pane has earned its name
When you look out of it and wonder if you'll see her again
And the window pane is not misnamed
When you look out of it and wonder if you'll see her again
