I've been living in the light of the shadows
Why won't you let me leave?
And I've been trying to find my way to the shallows
But the water's just too deep
Always something inside of me keeps dragging me down
I'm going deep below the undertow
And it won't let go
All I need is
Silence

There's a thumping that's filled with violence
And it creeps in through the walls at night when
When I can't see happy from sad, good or bad
All I need is silence
All I need is silence
Oh, I'm crying out for silence
You're not my partner, no you're not a part of me
I need
Silence

So tired of breathing in numbers
Trying to stop my racing heart
Oh, all I know is that I want it to stop
And I don't know where to start
Your always on my shoulder praying I won't try anymore
Conversations that begin to shout
Are you happy now?
All I need is
Silence

All I need is

Silence

There's a thumping that's filled with violence
And it creeps in through the walls at night when
When I can't see happy from sad, good or bad
All I need is silence
All I need is silence
Oh, I'm crying out for silence
You're not my partner, no you're not a part of me
I need
Silence
All I need is silence
Oh, I'm crying out for silence
You're not my partner, no you're not a part of me
I need
Silence

There's a thumping that's

Silence, all I need is silence
All I need is silence
Oh, I'm crying out for silence
You're not my partner, no you're not a part of me
I need
Silence

There's a thumping that's filled with violence (silence)
And it creeps in through the walls at night when (silence)
When I can't see happy from sad, good or bad
All I need is silence

All I need is silence
Oh, I'm crying out for silence
You're not my partner, no you're not a part of me
I need
Silence

There's a thumping that's filled with violence (silence)
And it creeps in through the walls at night when (silence)
When I can't see happy from sad, good or bad
All I need is silence
