The Silence

  • Found one of your old mixtapes
    Remembering listening to grace, I do
    But we were driving to DC
    I was drunk in your backseat, I know

    Nothing will ever be
    Like when were seventeen
    The stars will rearrange
    The sun will fade away
    Everyone will change
    But we will still remain
    And outlast the pyramids

    I will feel you
    I will see you
    I will hear you
    After the silence

    Remember all the frilly nights
    Driving down on 95
    Singing in a smokey room
    When we had everything to lose, I do

    And when we got some room to breathe
    You said that you would marry me
    But even if we never do
    I will alway be with you, I know

    That nothing will ever be
    Like when we were twenty-three
    Maps will rearrange
    And blue will turn to grey
    Everything will change
    But we will still remain
    And outlast the pyramids

    I will feel you
    I will see you
    I will hear you
    After the silence
    Silence

    The oceans can burn for all I care
    And in the ashes I'll meet you there
    I know someday
    The moon will blow away
    And all flesh will decay
    Everything will change
    But we will still remain
    And outlast the pyramids

    I will feel you
    I will see you
    I will hear you
    And I will keep you
    After the silence
    After the silence
    After the silence
    Silence
