lyrics

was it cool,
this work of art?
and was it warm,
my open heart?
did you listen close?
did you look inside?
did i show too much,
of the things I hide?
well, you have to say!

'cause those are things you've gotta tell me
allthough the words are gonna fail to bring it by
those are things you've gotta make me understand
you've gotta tell me with your hands

if I had sung
of big black death
of chilly wind
or your warm breath
could it wake you up
and stop your dying?
and was it raining
or were you crying?
you didn't say!

but those are things you've gotta tell me
allthough with words you're gonna fail to bring it by
those are things you've gotta make me understand
you've gotta tell me with your hands

so was it any good,
my stupid album?
did you like my songs
although I'm no Phil Elverum
and was it worth
whatever you paid
did you shut me up
or did you let it play?
well, you've got to say!

those are things you've gotta tell me
though your words are gonna fail to bring it by
those are things you've gotta make me understand
you've gotta tell me with your hands
