Speak Low If You Speak Love – Adjacent Lyrics

Half asleep on the couch in your basement, there’s a combination of things keeping me awake
Cause I know in the room adjacent, you lie beside the lease you signed and not the man you thought you’d find
No, there’s no convincing you – I should’ve never came, your mind’s already made
There’s no convincing you. I don’t know what I thought I’d get, but I know I didn’t get it
I didn’t have the money but I swallowed the toll, and you don’t seem to mind
I couldn’t spit it out so you swallowed me whole, and you don’t seem to mind

I placed a carefully crafted handwritten letter in your laundry basket
On top of dirty clothes I came clean, juxtaposed, and said to you everything you’d already known
Like, “I’m sick of the time zones and taking the train. You’re wearing me out, you’re wearing me out
There’s no room in Logan Square, or evidently anywhere. You tore us apart. You tore us apart.”
I didn’t have the money but I swallowed the toll, and you don’t seem to mind
I couldn’t spit it out so you swallowed me whole, and you don’t seem to mind
