The Silence Remains

 

 

Another ten years forgotten memories

Another night spent alone

Another chance for the hopes of your heart

Another opportunity blown

 

 

And don't you know this could have been our night

An exorcism at last

But it just went like last night and the night before that

Another two fingers another glass

 

 

Let me go, give me back to myself

Let me make my own pain

For all that I may shout and I may scream and I may kick

The silence remains

 

 

And don't you this could have been our night

It was there to be thrashed out between us

But for the times I never held you and you never held me back

And the words 'I love you' just got lost

 

 

The silence remains

The silence remains
