Verse 1:

Well I try to bite my tongue,
I think I bit too much,
And now I've gone and said more than I should.

At the end of everyday,
I say more than I wanna say,
I'm thinkin' way too much for my own god damn good.

I'm more aware than ever,
About the changes in the weather,
Predictions seem to match the reason with the rhyme.

Hasn't always been this way,
As the weatherman used to say,
I'm usually correct about half of the time.

Verse 2:

Should I try and bite my tongue,
Or let these words just run,
Opinions seem to weigh the owner of them down.

And if I keep them locked inside,
Will they go away or hide,
In the shadows of a bigger word's gloomy clouds.

Should I speak when spoken to?
Or should I leave that up to you?
Intentions seem to vary up and down the line.

And every morning when I wake,
I think about just what I'll say,
And hope every thought reveals itself at the right time.
