Listen closely,
Closer now.
Can you hear,
My broken vow?

A vow of silence
No longer there
Why can't you hear it?
This isn't fair

Quiet please
I'm trying to listen
Falling tears
Tears that glisten

Can you hear it?
It's steady song
Listen closer
Something's wrong

It's getting louder
And louder yet
Just how angry
Can these tears get?

The drops are ringing
Filling my head
This haunting tune
Filled with dread

Shh, listen
Am I the only one?
That can hear it?
It's still not done

When will it end?
This song can't break
Listening endlessly
Laying awake

It's over now
Silence is creeping
Finally at peace
Until eyes start weeping
