Speak Low If You Speak Love – Tiny Furnace Lyrics

That dress you wore the day we went over the train tracks: I want that day back
You said God wasn’t in the sky and there was nothing I could do or say to change your mind

But I didn’t want to change it

You’re a tiny furnace and I’m the coal you’re burning
Can’t you see I can’t douse the flame, things will never be the same
You’re a tiny furnace and I’m the coal you’re burning
Can’t you see I can’t douse the flame, but two can play at this game

Your blonde hair on the bed – the same one your mother caught me in
Those stars stuck to your ceiling seemed so out of reach, and I let them keep me up while you were fast asleep

And I know I panicked, and I’m sorry

You’re a tiny furnace and I’m the coal you’re burning
Can’t you see I can’t douse the flame, things will never be the same
You’re a tiny furnace and I’m the coal you’re burning
Can’t you see I can’t douse the flame, but two can play at this game

I got scared that you were too much, you were too much
I got scared that I wasn’t enough, wasn’t enough
I pretended that you didn’t exist, you didn’t exist
That’s something I never would wish, never would wish….

…on anyone
