    Lyrics

    I've been trying for hours just to think of what exactly to say
    I thought I'd leave you with a letter or firey speech
    Like when an actor makes an exit at the end of a play
    And I've been dying for hours trying to fill up all the holes with some sense
    I'd like to know how you faded and you threw it away
    I'd like to give you all the reasons and what everything meant

    Well I could tell you good-bye or maybe see you around
    With just a touch of a sarcastic thanks
    We started out with a bang and at the top of the world
    Now the guns are exhausted and the bullets are blanks
    And everything's blank

    [Chorus: x2]
    If I could find the words then I would write it all down
    If I could only find a voice I would speak
    Oh it's there in my eyes so can't you see me tonight
    c'mon and look at me and read 'em and weep

    I've been whispering softly, trying to build a cry up to a scream
    We let the past slip away, and put the future on hold
    Now the present is nothing but a hollowed out dream

    And I've been dying for hours trying to fill up all the holes with some sense
    I'd like to know why you faded and you threw it away
    I'd like to give you all the reasons and what everything meant

    Well I could tell you good-bye or maybe see you around
    With just a touch of a sarcastic thanks
    But now the rooms are all empty, the candles are dark
    The guns are exhausted and the bullets are blanks, and everything's blank

    [Chorus]

    It's there in my eyes and coming straight from my heart
    It's running silent and angry and deep
    It's there in my eyes and it's all I can say, c'mon and read 'em and weep

    Read 'em and weep, for all the hours we'll be spending alone
    Read 'em and weep, for the dreams we'll ignore
    Running silent and deep,
    And all those promises we promised to keep, they won't be kept anymore

    Read 'em and weep, for the magic that our bodies had made
    Read 'em and weep, for the blood that we lost
    Running silent and deep, and all the secrets that we somehow betrayed
    For whatever the cost

    Read 'em and weep, for the memories still alive in the bed
    Read 'em and weep, for the lies we believed
    Running silent and deep, and all the things that can never be said

    Why don't you look at me and read 'em and weep
    c'mon and look at me and read 'em and weep
    It's there in my eyes and coming straight from my heart
    It's running silent and angry and deep
    It's here in my eyes and it's all I can say
    c'mon look at me and read 'em and weep
