The Silence 06:02
It rained the night you left us I haven’t been the same since The air was still and I first heard the silence Now when I sleep I hear the sound that broke my heart It changed my life in every way It made me who I am today I haven’t been the same since I first heard the silence It took my soul and crushed it and I still cry Tortured by the memory Horrific yet so peaceful I closed my eyes but I still heard the silence Now when I sleep I hear the sound that broke my heart It changed my life in every way It made me who I am today I haven’t been the same since I first heard the silence It took my soul and crushed it and I still cry If only you could hear me The things that I would whisper All we’ve heard will fade with time but silence never dies Silence never dies I haven’t been the same since I first heard the silence It took my soul and crushed it and I still cry We were all around standing awkwardly As I held your hand I was scared to speak I have let you down I just let you leave I could see your chest rising as you breathed Then the nurse said “Go. Now it’s time to leave" Rain will fall and dry but silence never dies Now when I sleep I hear the sound that broke my heart It changed my life in every way It made me who I am today I haven’t been the same since I first heard the silence It took my soul and crushed it and I still cry If only you could hear me The things that I would whisper All we’ve heard will fade with time but silence never dies Silence never dies I haven’t been the same since I first heard the silence

Dearest Love, the years have passed and I’m still standing I’m exhausted but I made it through If you could see me now you’d barely recognise me A remake of the boy who you once knew The day you left the darkness spread But I was stronger than I thought I could be The part of you that others see I hold it as the best part of me I thank you Looking back we both required second chances We both hit the jackpot and we knew You’ve been gone so long I feared I might forget you But you’re the part of me that made the man The day you left the darkness spread But I was stronger than I thought I could be The part of you that others see I hold it as the best part of me I thank you If you could see the man you made I know that you’d be so proud of me The time has come to say goodbye Finally understand it I thank you If you could see the man you made I would make you proud of me The time has come to say goodbye Finally I understand I thank you The day you left and darkness spread It only made a man of me The part of you that lives in me Is the very place it needs to be I thank you I thank you I thank you

I never thought you’d leave me at the time you did I always thought there’d be another day I never said I love you I never said goodbye Despite my faith I’m burdened with the pain Hoping that someone feels the same Just to reassure myself I’m not insane At times like these I’m caught up in the memory At times like these life can be so hard At times like these moving forward is overwhelming At times like these I’d give anything to have you back with me I’d give anything to have you back with me I never thought you’d leave in the way you did My denial grew stronger by the day I never said I love you I never said goodbye Despite my faith I’m burdened with the pain Hoping that someone feels the same Just to reassure myself I’m not insane At times like these I’m caught up in the memory At times like these life can be so hard At times like these moving forward is overwhelming At times like these I’d give anything to have you back with me I’d give anything to have you back with me I miss your voice I miss your laugh Life is not the same without you I dry my eyes and carry on Grief has only made me stronger from times like these At times like these I’m caught up in the memory At times like these life can be so hard At times like these moving forward is overwhelming At times like these I’d give anything to have you back with me I’d give anything to have you back with me I’d give anything to have you back with me

I never thought it would come to this my friend but it has and we can’t change it I never really thought of asking why is there a reason for these things? I will never forget the past The good times outweighed the bad I never got to say goodbye And I haven’t said it yet I wanted the perfect song but I don’t have it I always thought it would take a lot to make me cry and it did and I still feel it Nothing we face in the journey of this life can prepare us for mourning I will never forget the past The good times outweighed the bad I never got to say goodbye And I haven’t said it yet I wanted the perfect song but I don’t have it I’ll never write the perfect song you deserve I’ll never write the perfect song you deserve I never got to say goodbye And I haven’t said it yet I wanted the perfect song but I don’t have it Goodbye my friend Goodbye my friend Goodbye my friend
