No one taught me how to speak
Into a microphone
I had to suss it out
I did it all alone

First I popped my P’s

The closer that I get
The more muffled I become
The further that I go
The words you’ll hear are none

Here is what I’ve found

To make a pretty sound
Not a whisper or a wail

Find that space between
There is no need to shout
An inch from the windscreen
Let your secrets out
