Liner Notes: 

I saw a meme this morning that a FB friend posted:

“Silence doesn’t mean I’m gone”

As an introvert I could totally relate.

It seemed like a good backbone for a lyric. This is what I ended up with. Hopefully it is not too sappy.

Would be happy to have a collaborator.

Lyrics: 

Silence

V1
you ask what I am thinking
you wonder if I am mad
you think I might be crazy
when I am feeling sad

you look at me with questions
you ask me what it wrong
you tell me I’m too quiet
that my silence is too long

PC1
words that make my silence more prolonged

C
my silence doesn’t mean I’m gone
it doesn’t mean that I don’t care
my silence doesn’t mean I’m gone
it speaks to the pain still there

sometimes I hear silence....
silence everywhere

V2
you ask why I’m not happy
you try to make me laugh
you say I should be over it
that enough time has passed

you tell me little stories
you reach out if there’s time
you expect me to tell you
that everything is fine

PC2
words that grow the silence in my mind

C
my silence doesn’t mean I’m gone
it doesn’t mean that I don’t care
my silence doesn’t mean I’m gone
it speaks to the pain still there

sometimes I hear silence....
silence everywhere

B
there is so much I could say
with words you would
rather not hear
know that I understand
and let silence speak
instead of tears

PC3
words of silence for insecurity and fear

C
my silence doesn’t mean I’m gone
it doesn’t mean that I don’t care
my silence doesn’t mean I’m gone
it speaks to the pain still there

sometimes I hear silence....
silence everywhere



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Oh gosh I can relate! I don't think I could come close to saying it as clearly as you do. Perfect!

This"sometimes I hear silence." Says so much about the whole picture painted here and the silence in between two that really should speak. great work
