Liner Notes: 

For the record I am not breaking up Smile I am just trying to expand my lyrical writing now when I am knocked down in a cold.
I really hope somebody feels this one.
Message me if you want to collab on it.

Lyrics: 

1, How come we are so distant when all I want is to be near
You know all my secrets, you can sense my fear
Was it when I walked away
In rage the other night
Was it when I fell asleep
And forgot to say good night

Ch
If we walk away now, then what?
If we have nothing to say now, then what?
When we don´t speak anymore
When our hearts did hit the floor
When there’s silence in between
Then what?
….Then what?

2, I can still feel our very first kiss
I can think of thousand things I´ll miss
But now the darkness in my heart
Screams higher
You are no longer the one
To light my fire

But

Ch
If we walk away now, then what?
If we have nothing to say now, then what?
When we don´t speak anymore
When our hearts did hit the floor
When there’s silence in between
Then what?
….Then what?

Bridge
How come the simple became hard
When I am standing here on the loves church yard
I don’t know what to do anymore
Exept for walking out trough that door

But …
Ch
If we walk away now, then what?
If we have nothing to say now, then what?
When we don´t speak anymore
When our hearts did hit the floor
When there’s silence in between
Then what?
….Then what?

Solid lyric, Maddie. (Is it almost time for the incredible metalfoot/acousticmaddie collab? This lyric makes me think possibly so...)

I like everything except "love's church yard" - not sure what that means. Other than that I would have liked to snap this one up for a collab, but metalfoot has beat me to it. Looking forward to hearing it. Smile

metalfoot lucks out by getting there first. this is going to make a great rock ballad.

Ha ha if my lyrics were about where i am in life they'd lock me up and throw away the key! Very powerful lyric.

Yes! Really strong writing that if feels so honest and from the heart even when it is just a lyric. Well done!
