SILENCE

Silence is gravity
It pulls me away from antiquities
These lovers and faces I’ve known for so long

It separates me from the past
It builds in distance
And it lasts
So it lasts

But if I speak up
If I wake up and feel the need to call out to you
You must hear me
You must respond to me

And if you don’t
Then I won’t know
And in my eyes
We will have died
You and I

Silence is darkness
It covers me fully in shrouded dress
I can’t see through every layer of this fog

It creates a vision of broken glass
It weaves throughout
And so it lasts
So it lasts

But if I speak up
If I wake up and feel the need to call out to you
You must hear me
You must respond to me

If I speak up
If I wake up and feel the need to call out to you
You must hear me
You must respond to me

‘Cause I’m being pulled into darkness
This glass won’t hold me, darling
It will shatter like you’ve done my heart
Gravity is silence, silence is darkness
