Silence (2021)

Updated: Jul 26, 2023

Silence is much louder when

The landed bird can’t fly

When the hopes of one who tried to love

Will never catch the light

Fiction is the place you seek

When reality appears

But the presence of your lost escape

And the truth will show your fears


And what does one do

When the storybooks are read

And all hope is dead

What does one do

When the past they left behind

Turns back the hands of time

And begins again

Repeating the past like an anthem


When the hero never falls in love

And the villain wins in the end

When the story that you knew

And the past begins to blend

And once again

I’m face-to-face with

The girl I can’t outrun

Can never be undone

And the whisper of the silent thoughts

Are floating out like astronauts

By the moon

Why so soon


Silence is much louder when

The landed bird can’t fly

When the hopes of one who tried to love

Will never catch the light

Fiction is the refuge that

Provides all of your fears

A safe place to rest

Until the dawn appears


And what does one do

When the sun shines too bright

And Icarus and you both are

Drawn to the light

These wings are but a sentiment

With no hope of letting me fly

The chains that hold me to the ground

Will never let me survive


And what does one do

When the storybooks are read

And all hope is dead

What does one do

When the past they left behind

Turns back the hands of time

And begins again

Repeating the past like an anthem


When the hero never falls in love

And the villain wins in the end

When the story that you knew

And the past begins to blend

And once again

I’m face-to-face with

The girl I can’t outrun

Can never be undone

And the whisper of the silent thoughts

Are floating out like astronauts

By the moon

Why so soon
