Shadows and Silhouettes

from Sad and quiet love songs by Will Good and The Mattes



When two people know it's ending but they don't want to be the first to say so...


A moment too soon
Your eyes look away
You’re making small talk
A little too hastily
When did you ever
Need so many words to tell me about your day

You’re choosing your clothes
So carefully
Lips brush my face
So fleetingly
When you’re standing close
You’re not quite as close as you used to be

There’s something unwarm
There’s something unright
Time washed the colour out and
Left us living in shadows… and silhouettes

We don’t do, We don’t dare
We lie awake just
Waiting not to be where…

I don’t think you notice
These things you do
You don’t see me watch
When I look at you
You’re doing so well
I haven’t the heart to say... me too
