lyrics

We can't speak with you again.
I can speak of and at you.
We tried all of the above, we
cast in marble,

at your side, a thing that
brought such obvious pleasure to your eyes.
At your side, a stone Teletubby.

It hurts to think about your name.
Baby, I struggle to to say your name.
What words - said or lettered - could cradle you?

Baby, I just want to speak something.
Both of us - we want to speak something.
Something. Anything. To anyone.

The stones aren't nothing.
The smile's not nothing
of all our love of you.

I love you!
That will stay.

Can't make it better. I can't utter - I can't stutter
anything that will weather, that will stay.

I know she's straining
when she says I did justice to our feelings.

The stones aren’t nothing.
The smile's not nothing
of all our love of you.

Everything here - vying for eminence,
record, or penitent.
Unravelling into the earth.
Going down in silence.
