Everything I want to say,

         but, no- I'll hold back.

Everything you need to know,

         but, no- I'll hold back.

Trapped by my inablitiy to form words,

         so, yes- I'll hold back.

But I want you to see the colors, the lights, the joys of my mind.

   I want you to feel what I feel

      I want to have sounds come from my mouth

         That will fall on yours ears

            That you will understand

                to be understood....

You speak to me slowly-

                                  I speak to you with a broken tounge.

I want you to laugh at my jokes-

                                   the ones I can't make.

We bond through Coldplay-

                                   but you're still a language away.
