Smith & Thell – Telephone Wires Lyrics

Telephone Wires Lyrics by Smith & Thell


[Maria Jane Smith]
And telephone wires
Lead all way to you
But we don’t know how to talk, no
Though we got all the tools
They go over the rooftops
Into the jack in your room
And yet I’m still silent
I’m as silent as you
And telephone wires
They were made to keep friends
The people you silenced
In other ways than what’s meant
We speak the same language
But we don’t say the true words
And who let their guard down
Who let it down first?

[Maria Jane Smith]
And we stay in our castles
Protected by our homes
Say who loves the other
Enough to let them fall
The absence of you let go
The door slams in the heart
One day I’ll regret this
Regret I never called

[Maria Jane Smith]
Though I could write it down
There are papers and pens
They all are taken airplanes
But I never pretend
‘Cause I’m getting colder
I’m getting older and lonelier
But my heart is clever, clever, clever, clever
It can’t hurt forever

[Maria Jane Smith]
And we stay in our castles
Protected by our homes
Say who loves the other
Enough to let them fall
The absence of you let go
The door slams in the heart
One day I’ll regret that

[Maria Jane Smith]
I, I pushed you away from me
But time makes you blurry
And I, I hope I’ll forget about you
That my heart is clever, clever, clever, clever
It can’t hurt forever, ever, ever, ever
