Let’s not talk

Talk is cheap

Talk is weak.

Let’s just lay here

Here is quiet

Here is safe.

Let’s hold on to one another

We’re changing

We’re inconsistent.

Let’s not talk

Talk is cheap

Talk is weak.

Let’s just lay here

Here is quiet

Here is safe.

Let’s hold on to one another

We’re changing

We’re inconsistent.

Let’s not overthink

Overthinking ruins everything

Overthinking is bad for the soul of everyone.

Let’s just promise to hold on for as long as possible

Because when we let go, we’ll have given up

Because when we let go, we’ll have said all there is to say.

Let’s not promise forever

Because forever is a lie

Because forever will die.

Let’s just hold on to one another

Because I am yours

Because you are mine.

So let’s just lay here

Here is now

Here is us.

Let’s not talk

Talk can’t describe how we’re feeling

Talk will only lead to another heart in need of healing.
