The Silence Wanted A Picture
 
Lyrics
VERSE
We started off like some Roman candles shot high into the air
Continuing well into the night; we had a certain flair
But as often is the case with things that burn red hot
We only made it just so far into the melting pot

PRE-CHORUS
I think you tried really hard; I think I did too
But right now we're not speaking, so here's what I thought to do

CHORUS
The silence wanted a picture, so I painted you this song
It's a haunting mixture of what went right and wrong
If I'm too hurt to tell you how I feel in so many words
Then maybe (just maybe) this simple song will let my words be heard

SOLO

PRE-CHORUS
As yet the song has no name; I'd like to share that with you
It could be about recalling the love or it could just make us blue

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Yes, the silence wanted a picture, but I'll leave its name up to you
