lyrics

You didn’t know it but I recorded our conversation
And I’m listening back to it now
Because the wire can tell you more than the transcription
It captures the sound, the sound, the sound

So I’ll rewind the reel when it gets to the end 'cause
I live in the words I can play back again
I live in the words I can play back again!

They say the man who first pulled sound out of the ether
Thought if he tuned his wireless right
That every throat that ever spoke could sing forever
As clear as I hear our last fight

I’ll rewind the reel when it gets to the end 'cause
I live in the words I can play back again, yeah
I live in the words I can play back again!

I hear the creak of the door as it opened
And the slam of it after you’d gone
So forever I’ll churn in that moment
And a thousand before and beyond

But if I have to listen to my lisp or your lies one more time
I’m gonna die
And it isn’t worth knowing if I said what I meant
'Cause I tried

But I’ll rewind the reel when it gets to the end 'cause
I live in the words I can play back again, yeah
I live in the words I can play back again!
