I had a lover long ago,
who I thought would never go.
But through the years she became
Two words became one
And one became none
And now all that’s left is silence.
My friend would come and go
But eventually he’d always show.
Then life took a turn
And he never returned.
From him all that’s left is silence.
My grandma she loved me so
But finally she had to let go.
Even though her memory lives on,
Through the years as they’ve gone,
All that remains is silence.
My father he watched me grow.
Together we’d march through the snow.
One day he felt bad
And the last moment we had
He told us, “Don’t worry. I’ll see you soon.”
Now all that’s left is silence.
Terrible, terrible, silence.
