Silence Speaks Too

I won't wake up to the constant ringing of the doorbell…
I ignore
I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, looking like hell,
Once more

It's too hard to recognize your soft voice 
In the chaos of my family's music choice
You used to do such dumb things to me
You accused me of being the fool too, I see 

Days and weeks pass us by 
And I try and I try and I try 
To understand your point of view
I am truly confused just like you
Months and years go on by
And I cry and I cry and I cry
Out your name in the darkness
You don't hear my lonely distress
I'm the silence amongst the crowd
I'm the silence that won't speak aloud
But silence speaks too…

I don't want to hear your complaints about me all day and night 
Change is a challenging chore
I won't let the sun shine down on me as I sweat a storm with fright 
Open up the opportunity door 

It's too hard to recognize your soft voice 
In the chaos of my family's music choice
You used to do such dumb things to me
You accused me of being the fool too, I see 

Days and weeks pass us by 
And I try and I try and I try 
To understand your point of view
I am truly confused just like you
Months and years go on by
And I cry and I cry and I cry
Out your name in the darkness
You don't hear my lonely distress
I'm the silence amongst the crowd
I'm the silence that won't speak aloud
But silence speaks too…

I silently shower upon me radiant relief
From this squalid grief...this cruel grief…
You should have heard me out in the brink of my unfailing demise
You laugh at me cuz you don't know the truth behind your lies

And I cry and I cry and I cry
Out your name in the darkness
You don't hear my lonely distress
I'm the silence amongst the crowd
I'm the silence that won't speak aloud
And I cry and I cry and I cry
Out your name in the darkness
You don't hear my lonely distress
I'm the silence amongst the crowd
I'm the silence that won't speak aloud
And I try and I try and I try 
To understand your point of view
I am truly confused just like you
Know that my silence speaks too...
