Lyrics

Hush of Your Tongue

Written By: Matt Green

I have seen meadows
Burned up and dry
And I have seen flowers
The freeze in July
This town's got me wondering
If I'm dead or alive
Oh, I'm counting the days 'til it's time

There's a place in the country
A valley I've known
Where the morning sun soaks up
The shadows we've sown
And I'll call you on Sunday
So you know that I'm gone
Oh, this time I won't be coming home

Chorus
What do you do with the end of a line?
When you hear a heart breaking in two
Just sit there in silence and count down from nine
Let the hush of your tongue get you through

I'll carry a sparrow
All wrapped up in gold
Let it rest on the branches
The water brought home
And I'll tuck a promise
Underneath it's gray coat
Let the waves wash away what I wrote

So what do you do with the end of a line?
When you hear a heart breaking in two
Just sit there in silence and count down from nine
Let the hush of your tongue get you through
