Speak or Sleep

And she opened up and cried
To be taken in the name
Of Holy Orders
Of bribery and charity and pain

But he was afraid
Innocent though stranded by a lie
That wouldn’t waver
Wounded by a light that wouldn’t die

Speak or sleep for a while
You can’t fill this emptiness inside
Speak or sleep for a while
You can’t fill this emptiness inside

So while the husband was away
He would wake her every evening from a dream
And if it’s loneliness she craves for
Then she couldn’t wish for better company

But he tries
And he gives as much as he’s allowed in this life
Until he stands on the edge
But he can’t give it up
Can’t give up

Speak or sleep for a while
You can’t fill this emptiness inside
Speak or sleep for a while
You can’t fill this emptiness inside

But tonight will linger for a while…

Come on let’s fill this emptiness tonight…
