The Silence
Avalanche City Lyrics

I remember a conversation
At a restaurant with a friend of mine
He's a successful mind
And he told me of his life

And the plans he'd made to come this far
Had gone so well and now we're all
So proud of him and he told me how
But I couldn't bear to listen
'Cause all my life I've heard of the
Dreams of the organized
To be the best in the company
To win the awards but that's not me

'Cause all my life all I ever wanted
Was a love that lasted longer than the silence

I had to say that I had to leave
'Cause it was on my mind
That all he set in me was insecurity
But that dream was never mine

'Cause the plans I thought I'd made
So far had gone alright but all that I feel now
Is doubt and he told me why
But I couldn't bear to listen
