Nothing You Say

Written by: Jodie Williams

Nothing you say will entice me to leave
So give me the truths I so desperately need
Clever avoidance, my questions, they float
And then the unsaid culminates in my throat

It must be exhausting, this playful performance
Endlessly running and claiming the distance
And just for a second, you stop everything
Then take off again as I'm closing in

You give me these glimpses and insights of you
But snatch them away as we get to the truth
I'm aching to touch you, set the demons free
Nothing you say will entice me to leave
