Tongues: You Never Knew Me Lyrics:
I’m walk this life, in the brightest day
I keep my dreams in sight
And my fears at bay
I used to fight the current
Now I hide away
I can’t get a single word
That you try to say
This has come to sway me
Blinded by their tainted eyes they used to find this
Only formed you’re in disguise
Only formed you’re in disguise

Refused a few failures
From the moment have in mind
But has our word
It pulls my joints and leaves me blind
It seems like you never knew me at all

It’s a trick to build this
This I’ll take to tell it’s gone
It’s been a long time coming
But I see the open road
It’s been always coming
But I see the time it’s gone

This has come to sway me
Blinded by their tainted eyes they used to find this
Only formed you’re in disguise
Only formed you’re in disguise

Refused a few failures
From the moment have in mind
But has our word
It pulls my joints and leaves me blind
It seems like you never knew me at all

This road you’ll never find
Asking for eyes we stay in time
They come to in afterglow
Every Monday it’s untold
Their hope is a tourniquet
And it comes now down and sweeps you off again
No dreams I’ll never sleep
Pulls me up slowly gives me time to rest.
