lyrics

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
