you haven’t told me anything lyrics – keane

in a pearl grey room one afternoon
one afternoon what are you going to do?
i hang on your words but there’s nothing new

you take a beautiful thing
pull off a wing, pull off a wing
a safety pin
they never shine quite as bright again

but you haven’t told me anything
that i didn’t already know
no you haven’t said a single thing
that i didn’t already know

everything i love is stuck in the mud
stuck in the mud, stuck in a rut
not a piece in your puzzle or a paper cut

so same time next week
a kiss on the cheek, kiss on the cheek
and say after me
everything’s tied up nice and neat

but you haven’t told me anything
that i didn’t already know
no you haven’t sold me anything
that i didn’t already own

i feel for you
i really do
nothing turns out
like you want it to
no words can mend
this fix i’m in
hearing those words
that i’ll never play
right between the eyes
i don’t feel a thing

but you haven’t told me anything
that i didn’t already know
no you haven’t said a single thing
that i didn’t already know

no you haven’t told me anything
no you haven’t told me anything
no you haven’t told me anything
no you haven’t told me anything
