The Tip of a Tongue

from by Brooks Strause

lyrics

I wish I could survive your friendship
I wish I could bear your pall
I wish I could see what happens
I wish I could see it fall

But this world we were born into wasn't built for me at all
And when I hear the angels’ voices I'll be answering the call

But please, little bird, please, don't tell me the word

I wish I could wear out my welcome
I wish I could watch the earth die
I wish I could name my own heaven
I wish I could tell that lie

But the rose that you see it through wasn't built into my eye
And when I hear God speak again, I will be telling you goodbye

But please, little bird, please, don't tell me the word
