restrained/we stopped talkin

Restrained

 

Trying to steer away from it all

It seems too many have to fall

No direction home, silent queen on the throne

As much use as odorless cologne

Somebody feel free to speak your mind

Guess we are all flying blind

In the age of digital techno

Some still refuse to let go

And lay it all on the line

Don’t Wanna upset the divine

When your covered in a shroud

I declare love out loud!

Chorus

Restrained, restricted

Something’s can’t be contained

Let love loose, let life seduce

It’s all an open highway, come on this is my way

Give a little slack it’s magic but not black

Your souls colder than an ice pack

Restricted, restrained

Count the loss against the gain

 

Surprised, suppressed we are all blessed

More than one flew over the cuckoo’s nest

Gandhi and Jesus Christ, both betrayed twice

It’s as common as chicken and rice

Somebody yell from the soul

For our world is just a black hole

Trapped in chains

No need to be at pains

Release the feelings that’s inside

Look at us we are Jekyll and Hyde

Trained and mind washed

Take the reign now be your own boss

Chorus

Restrained, restricted

Something’s can’t be contained

Let love loose, let life seduce

It’s all an open highway, come on this is my way

Give a little slack it’s magic but not black

Your souls colder than an ice pack

Restricted, restrained

Count the loss against the gain

we stopped talking

I can remember coming home to
you at the end of the day
somehow we'd have so much to say
when the weather and the news
never gave us the blues
cos we had forever and nothing to loose
now I guess one of us should start walking
cos honey we've stopped talking

the endless summers of past
when we used to eat lunch sitting on the grass
holding hands and caravans
candy floss and nights lost
dancing our lives away
as the branches of our lives
in the breeze did sway
now there’s nothing left to say
so I guess one of us had better
start walking cos hunny
we've stopped talking

yes we chat all the time
but your words are shallow
and so are mine
and we can never get back
the hands of time
our clock has reached zero
and I never did believe in heroes
your lips never move to speak
and I'm getting itchy feet
so it's time I did some walking
cos hunny we stopped talking

n.c.lawry.
