Loudest Silence Lyrics

by Tessanne Chin

I hate to feel like a stranger in my own house
Not saying any words but my eyes are cursing you out
And you're no better cuz I'm quiet as well
And in my mind I'm thinking in your mind you're saying "Go to hell!"

And I'm just walking right by you flipping my hair
And you're just walking right by me like I'm not there
And we're not getting anywhere, anywhere at all
And the only sound in my house is coming out of these four walls

This is the loudest silence that I've heard
Although we're not saying any words
The tension in the room is cutting pretty deep
And I'd give anything, I mean anything, just to hear you talk to me

Talk to me, talk to me, baby, baby can you talk to me?
Talk to me, talk to me, baby, baby can you talk to me?
Cuz this is the loudest silence that I've heard
And we're not even speaking any words

If you and I are wrong, baby, no one's right
So we both just really keep quiet to keep our pride
And you're too stubborn to give in, so am I
But the funny thing is, by tommorrow morning, we're gonna be fine

But for now I'm walking right by you flipping my hair
And you're just walking right by me like I'm not there
And we're not getting anywhere, anywhere at all
Cuz this elephant in this room is too hard to ignore

This is the loudest silence that I've heard
Although we're not saying any words
The tension in the room is cutting pretty deep
And I'd give anything, I mean anything, just to hear you talk to me

Baby if you only knew
How bad I wanna talk to you
How I'd give anything just to hear you say something
I just wanna work it out
I don't even really know what we're fighting 'bout
Ooh I'll do anything to hear your voice baby

Talk to me, talk to me baby, baby can you talk to me?
Talk to me, talk to me baby, baby can you talk to me?
Cuz this is the loudest silence that I've heard
Cuz we're not even speaking
