The Silence Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I acquired knowledge and remained a fool
And I required her to love me in my ignorance
She found that she could not save time
So she saved her breath
And she became the silence in my life
Verse 2
Was it the fear of god
Or just the fear of fear
That made a habit out of loving
And kept her here
Verse 3
You can't turn on the sunshine
Like you can turn off the light
So she became the darkness in my life
Verse 4
Loves quiet inefficiency ran us down
Left us like the feel good years
Left the old boomtown
I saw the ocean and the sea blue sky become one alone
As she became the silence in my life
Verse 5
I met you where the railway lines disappear
You said you learn to love among volunteers
But love involves conscription, sometimes when you're young
Verse 6
But now we sing between the silence in my life
Sing between the silence in my life
She became the silence in my life
