Silhouettes
by Colony House

Are you half empty?
Why don't you fill up?
There's no sense in holding onto something broken,

Did you lose something?
Or someone you love?
You've still got that story tell it every morning,

Driving down a road, down a road that's rolling
All the lovely memories you hearts been holding
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Driving down a road, a road that's hidden,
All your faithful memories, your faith for living
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
So come on!

Nothing is perfect,
For that there's no cure,
So don't you start to bury the good with the bad, and the ugly,

Driving down a road, down a road that's rollin'
All the lovely memories you hearts been holding
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Driving down a road, a road that's hidden,
All your faithful memories, your faith for living
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
So come on!

And I can feel your heartbeat slipping away
It's hard to catch the light when you're running from the day!
So wait for it! Wait for it! Wait!

Driving down a road, down a road that's rolling
All the lovely memories you hearts been holding
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Driving down a road, a road that's hidden,
All your faithful memories, your faith for living
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
So come on!

It's actually kind of funny how I discovered Colony House. I was at my root canal appointment, (which I was not looking forward to at all!) and the nurse lady, or assistant asked if I wanted a magazine, and of course I said yes. So as I was flipping through the pages, and I seen the heading "Awesome band, with awesome tunes!" so I was like "oh okay, i'll look into them when I get home". So I did and now i'm forever thankful for that root canal appointment. I have a tooth that no longer hurts AND I have a new favorite band. My fave's by them is "Silhouettes"and "Keep on Keeping on".

Talk That Talk With LR

amazing story!

She Writes

This theory makes a lot of sense. I know Caleb lost his sister when she was very young, and a lot of their songs that deal with loss are inspired by that circumstance. I find this song very comforting when thinking about people that have left my life. He's an amazing songwriter.

(this was a comment from forever ago... but I love interpretations so I'll give mine)

It's about someone singing to someone who's lost someone. They still have memories of that person, beautiful memories, beautiful feelings. I feel like the whole song he's trying to get them to focus not on the sadness and anger at that person, but on the good times. He's helping them through their grief. "Nothing silhouettes until the lights come on" - you won't be able to see the beauty in the 'shadows', see the truth of that person until you come to accept their actions and life... maybe? That line's always thrown me a bit. lol But it's definitely about love and loss. Whether by death or break up, or even going separate ways (2 friends). It's really a beautiful song about acceptance and loss.

Jansen Morby

This song's about love and compassion towards world peace.

Nancy Mattus

What is this song about because it sounds like a song opened to interpretation.
