Set The Pace


image

I can hear you loud and clear from a mile away, and the volume only escalates as you draw near.
Sometimes words just can’t keep up with the pace of our embrace.

We transcend the speed of sound when you kiss me.
The way I look at you spells out just how sweet you are to me.

Let the silence set the pace.
The noise only lasts so long.

If we fall for each other and no one’s there to hear it, did we really fall?
They’re not on our frequency no matter how they may try.

When we speak, let it set us free.
Our hearts won’t keep quiet because no one else will do.

Let the silence set the pace.
Time for conversation to take a timeout.

Desire speaks without tongues once you let it in.
Anything I say or do can and will be used to get you excited.

It will be worth it every time I say your name.
Don’t say it unless you mean it.

Let the silence set the pace.
