Track Name: When the Silence Breaks
You tell me I'm crazy, but you really couldn't know
Am I allowed to say maybe? Am I allowed to let it show?
I've been down so low--it's a long, long way to go
Now I'm down--down & out
But everything is going to turn around

Strange when the silence breaks
Where're you going to run when it comes your way
Followed by the ghost & it stays always beside you
Oh, and it's understood
Trying hard to fight it but you knew they would
The beautiful, the true, and the good come back to haunt you

You thought the spell had been broken, but it seeped into your bones
And every night has been stolen
I hear you singing, but the song hasn't got no soul.
I've been down so low--it's a long, long way to go
Now I'm down--down & out
But everything is going to turn around

Strange when the silence breaks
Where're you going to run when it comes your way
Followed by the ghost & it stays always beside you
Oh, and it's understood
Trying hard to fight it but you knew they would
The beautiful, the true, and the good come back to haunt you
