Light up the cigarette to kill time
if there was some way to express it otherwise
i would

fed up on figting over crumbs and dust
don't have to be this way a hollow trust
if we could find some way to make it right
we would, we would

and then the silence came
there was not a word to say
one hour felt like a day
when the silence came
we felt it on our bodies
no way to turn it around
one hour felt like a day
when the silence came
when the silence came

can hear nothing but the dripping from the town
blowing kisses, no one to grab
need to organize this life that we have
if we could

god knows what we have sacrificed
guess we deserve the days of our lives
wish we could learn how to let things slide
ohh wait, just for a day

and then the silence came
there was not a word to say
one hour felt like a day
when the silence came
we felt it on our bodies
no way to turn it around
one hour felt like a day
when the silence came
when the silence came
(the silence came)

god knows what we have sacrificed
guess we deserve the days of our lives
wish we could learn how to let things slide
for a day

and then the silence came
there was not a word to say
one hour felt like a day
when the silence came
we felt it on our bodies
no way to turn it around
one hour felt like a day
when the silence came
when the silence came
