HEAVY TOUCH

HEAVY TOUCH
I listen to the silence
Like a prayer in the room
The lights burning steady like stars
I listen to the night
Beneath the light bulb moon
But the quiet says the distance is too far
Yeah, the quiet says the distance is too far

I listen to the air
Darkened by the time
The distance of my hands through the bars
I listen to the night
Voices saying it is mine
But the quiet says the distance is too far
Yeah the quiet says the distance is too far

Too far, too far, too far
Too far and too few
Too far, too far, too far
Too far for me, too far for you
Too far, too far
Too far, too far, too far and too few
Too far, too far
Too far, too far, too far and too few

I listen to the change
Like gangsters on the run
Just the squealing tyres of cop-chase cars
I listen to the night
A dark and hidden gun
But the quiet says the distance is too far
Yeah, the quiet says the distance is too far

Too far, too far, too far
Too far and too few
Too far, too far, too far
Too far for me, too far for you
Too far, too far
Too far, too far, too far and too few
Too far, too far
Too far, too far, too far and too few

I listen to the promise
Of the day in my mind
Strange light kept inside a jar
I listen to the night
Keeping what I find
But the quiet says the distance is too far
Yeah, the quiet says the distance is too far

Too far, too far, too far
Too far and too few
Too far, too far, too far
Too far for me, too far for you
Too far, too far
Too far, too far, too far and too few
Too far, too far
Too far, too far, too far and too few
