Tongue Tied

Written by vanessa collier

Is it the weight of your fingers keepin' me here

Maybe it's the breath that leaves me

When you whisper in my ear

But I don't know what you did but you got me

You got me tongue tied

 

Maybe it's the way you say my name

How it trickles off the tip of your tongue

If only I knew better I'd know that means

I should just cut loose and run

But I don't know what you did but you got me

You got me tongue tied

 

Ain't it funny how we do a lotta talkin'

Ain't it funny how we do what we do

Ain't it funny how we do a lotta talkin'

Sayin’ nothin’ at all

 

I ain't used to doin' the chasin'

Usually I sweet talk 'em and split

But I'm at a loss for words for ya baby

And my secondhand heart's got a backwards tick

And I don't know what you did but you got me

You got me tongue tied

 

Ain't it funny how we do a lotta talkin'

Ain't it funny how we do what we do

Ain't it funny how we do a lotta talkin'

Sayin’ nothin’ at all

 

Don't know what you did but you got me
