Silence and I

 


If I cried out loud
All the sorrows I've known
And the secrets I've heard
It would ease my mind
Someone sharing the load
But I won't breathe a word
We're two of a kind
Silence and I
We need a chance to talk things over
Two of a kind
Silence and I
We'll find a way to work it out
While the children laughed
I was always afraid
Of the smile of the clown
So I close my eyes
Till I can't see the light
And I hide from the sound
Oooh, we're two of a kind
Silence and I
We need a chance to talk things over
Two of a kind
Silence and I
We'll find a way to work it out
I can hear the cry
Of the leaf on a tree
As it falls to the ground
I can hear the call
Of an echoing voice
And there's no one around
Oooh, we're two of a kind
Silence and I
We need a chance to talk things over
Two of a kind
Silence and I
We'll find a way to work it out

  1. This has been always my favourite piece from APP. I have all their recordings and sheet music and play this piece often on the piano. Seeing this here gives me an inkling why I like it.
    Not necessarily connected, but the lines ‘I can hear the cry/ of the leaf on the tree/ as it falls to the ground’ reminds me of a poem I hastily scribbled down many eons ago while I was blind drunk (a seldom event believe it or not).
    It was about a leaf departing from a tree drifting down to lie and become once again one with the earth before rising up and seeing the sun again in a new life on another tree. I think this was triggered by a book I was reading at the time about Samsāra.
    The next morning in the harsh light of day I realised it was let’s say semi ok and need a lot of work done to it. Which I now remember I never got round to doing. Will have to try and find it.

    1. Many of these songs have subtle and introspective lyrics and this one as an introvert really speaks to me and my experience with concealing who I was for much of my life :)
