Drowning In The Silence

A lucky man he made it home after the war
Turned his collar to the wind said it’s now or not at all
It’s now or not at all
He’d known the girl for a little while before he went away
But war taught him that life could not wait another day
Couldn’t wait another day
When you’re drowning in the silence - drowning in the silence
Drowning in the silence of love

Wedding bells would make it right or so they thought
But they were just another kind of victim of the war that they just fought
Yeah the war that they just fought
They fooled themselves for a little while - fooled the others too
Can hide a lot behind a smile even dreams that don’t come true
Even dreams that don’t come true
When you’re drowning in the silence - drowning in the silence
Drowning in the silence of love

They had a child in ’52 that was all there’d be
Maybe they should’ve called it quits but they stayed because of me
Ah they stayed because of me
I saw them drowning in the silence - drowning in the silence
Drowning in the silence of their love

I’d lie awake and listen to the anger fill the air
But next morning all was fine I was not supposed to care
I was not supposed to care
That we were drowning in the silence - drowning in the silence
Drowning in the silence of their love

Not everyone can find true love - oh I wish they could
It’s too easy in this life to do harm by doing good...
