We Couldn'T Talk

The silence was so deafening as I longed to talk it out You said nothing’s wrong, but left me with a doubt I gathered all my things and gave you back your key You never thought to ask, why are you leaving me Communication is at fault, it can take the blame For talking this thing out, I am no longer game Tried to make you understand, tried to make you see That love is a two way street, not something that is easy You wanted me to be someone that I won’t ever be So it is better to leave it alone and so I’ll set you free Is it over, are we through,you asked before I shut the door Yes, I said, I just can’t take this silence anymore The car is loaded now and I am pulling out of the drive Tears burn my eyes, I don’t want you to see me cry It’s over, yes it’s over, though it had never quite begun We could never talk about us, so what’s done is done
