Breaking The Silence

(McDonald/Cunningham)

 

Silence,crushing the love within my soul
Tearing my heart out, leaving me
Breathless and alone
I scream in the silence
But I can't make myself heard
Deafened by silence that cries
Within my head

I could be strong whatever went wrong
My love could could take the blows
Numb to the pain again and again
The bruises never show

I lost my heart
I must have lost my head
God knows I lost my voice
All I never said

Darkness, shadows on shadows
In my heart
No sense of direction
I don't know where to start
I stumble in darkness
Cuts on my hands and on my knees
Never making you happy
No matter how hard I try to please

I could be strong
whatever went wrong
My love could could take the blows
Numb to the pain
again and again
The bruises never show
