These walls have eyes
Rows of photographs and faces like mine
Who do we become
Without knowing where we started from?

It's true I'm missing you
As I stand alone in your room

Everyday that will pass you by
Every name that you won't recall
Everything that you made by hand
Everything that you know by heart

And I will try to connect all the pieces you left
I will carry it on and let you forget
And I'll remember the years when your mind was clear
How the laughter and life filled up this silent house

One room, two single beds
In the closet hangs your favorite dress
The books that you read
Are in scattered piles of paper shreds

Everything that you made by hand
Everything that you know by heart

I will try to connect all the pieces you left
I will carry it on and let you forget
And I'll remember the years when your mind was clear
How the laughter and life filled up this silent house
Silent house

In the garden off the living room
A chill fills the air and the lilies bloom

And I will try to connect all the pieces you left
I will carry it on and let you forget
And I'll remember the years when your mind was clear
How the laughter and life filled up this

And I will try to connect all the pieces you left
I will carry it on and let you forget
And I'll remember the years when your mind was clear
How the laughter and life filled up this silent house
Silent house
