Your Name Escapes Me

For every word you speak there is a sound
And in each sound there lies a heart with a secret
And All these sounds sounded together
Sound like a song we could all happily sing along

People meet behind closed doors to sign papers that
Bind to keep formalities
Like components A and B must go together
Directions say this is how it should be

It’s talk talk, it’s touch touch
I don’t mean, you don’t mean, your name escapes me
It’s talk talk, it’s touch touch
I don’t mean, you don’t mean, your name escapes me
It’s push push, it’s shove shove
It’s shake shake to get what you want
It’s talk talk, it’s touch touch
I don’t mean you don’t mean, your name escapes me

For every promise there are two ends
And one end goes on while the other falls in
And all these promises promised together
Promise us nothing and so we move along

People meet behind closed doors to sign papers that
Bind to keep formalities
Like components A and B must go together
Directions say this is how it should be

It’s talk talk, it’s touch touch
I don’t mean, you don’t mean, your name escapes me
It’s talk talk, it’s touch touch
I don’t mean, you don’t mean, your name escapes me
It’s push push, it’s shove shove
It’s shake shake to get what you want
It’s talk talk, it’s touch touch
I don’t mean you don’t mean, your name escapes me
