Name of Song: Silence and life

What do I say,
I’m thinking yea or neigh,
Should I carefully explain,
Or stay in silence!

She asked me do I love,
She’s starting to fit me like a glove,
But it seems too soon to say,
So I stay in silence.

We have all been back and fro,
On when to talk and when to slow,
Looking for a quiet place so…
I can be silent.

Chorus
Silence mirrors who we are,
There’s no need to raise the bar,
Myself and silence feel we match,
Let’s stay together.

I know they’ll never change,
They always feel so out of range,
And they can’t seem to exchange,
I’m staying silent.

Accused I did this act,
Should I respond with little tact,
Their own mystery is their urge,
Probably better to remain in my own silence.

Some get lost in their own quiet,
Sucked within their silent riot,
And although it can’t be heard,
They know it’s waiting.

Chorus
Silence mirrors who we are,
There’s no need to raise the bar,
Myself and silence feel we match,
Let’s stay together.
______

We all love a mystery,
Proven true by history,
Being silent tends to say,
I’m still thinking.

I try to think out things before,
So I don’t appear a bore,
Living with others can be a chore,
So I keep thinking.

Running through how life could be,
So at least I still can see,
Gives me confidence in me,
I’m choosing silence.

Chorus
Silence mirrors who we are,
There’s no need to raise the bar,
Myself and silence feel we match,
Let’s stay together.
______

Then there’s silence just for me,
Gives me time to simply see,
What I feel I need to be,
Alongside silence.

Yes, there’s silence just for me,
Gives me time to simply see,
What I feel I need to be,
Alongside silence.

Chorus
Silence mirrors who we are,
There’s no need to raise the bar,
Myself and silence feel we match,
Let’s stay together.
