This song's kind of complicated. But basically, it's about the fear that you're about to lose everyone who loves you, that they don't love you anymore, that they've given up on you. It's hard feeling like the odd one in a group, the one who just sits back and listens. And when people stop trying to include you, it hurts more than anything. They may not even realize that, and they may not even be trying to give up on you like that, but it just hurts even more that way. You feel like they haven't even bothered to think of what might break you. Like pretty much all of my songs, it's from an experience that I've been struggling with. Since I wrote this, I think I may have gotten past it. It looks like things have gotten better, and I don't feel as angsty reading this as I did when I wrote it. But I really like how it turned out... The italicized bits are meant to be whispered, sorta like Evanescence. They inspire me a lot, hehe.

Silent Whisper

Shifting eyes, saying nothing
Fading into the unknown
Shifting eyes, saying nothing
Lost your hearts, lost my own

Where are you going now?
Away from me?
What happened to that love
I used to see?
Just say hello
Say something
Giving and giving
To everyone but me

Are you sick of my silence?
Do I no longer belong?
Just stopped even trying
When did it go wrong?

I remember when I felt
I'd found my home
But suddenly you make me feel
Even more alone
Invisible
Unlovable
Is it just me
Or have you all gone cold?

Are you sick of my silence?
Do I no longer belong?
Just stopped even trying
When did it go wrong?

Don't you know you're breaking me?
Nothing hurts more than nothing
Don't you know me anymore?
Would I ever hurt you that way?

Are you sick of my silence?
Do I no longer belong?
Just stopped even trying
When did it go wrong?
Oh, I'm sick of the silence
Making me feel like I no longer belong
Stopped me from trying
Until you tell me I'm wrong

Shifting eyes, saying nothing
Fading into the unknown
Shifting eyes, saying nothing
Lost your hearts, lost my own

Did I ever hurt you that way?
Did I hurt you?
Did I hurt you?
Please forgive me
If I hurt you
