quiet violence lyrics – sharon kenny

if you hit me with words you don’t say
it still hurts
so i’ll hit you back by biting my tongue
and we’ll have a war without any volume
i will remember
i’ll just remember the sounds we used to make

but memories have no noise
memories have no voice
no voice, voice
voice, voice

our tragedy
it lies in the silence
the still of the storm
the quiet violence

it’s wrapped itself up in blankets and pillows
and gone to sleep
our tragedy is the mouths with no motion
the questions we ask
but the answers unspoken

we sit here together
we laugh
we smile, but we bleed

we sat in the back row together
i couldn’t really see above
the tall people sitting in front of me
so i closed my eyes real tight
and i listened

and i can remember
i still remember
we didn’t need to speak

but memories have no sound
memories can’t speak out loud
out loud, loud
loud, loud

our tragedy
it lies in the silence
the still of the storm
the quiet violence

it’s wrapped itself up in blankets and pillows
and gone to sleep
our tragedy is the mouths with no motion

the questions we ask
but the answers unspoken

we sit here together
we laugh
we smile, but we bleed

love is not implied
love is not implied
love is not implied
love is not implied

love is not implied, implied
love is not implied, implied
love is not implied, implied
love is not implied, implied

our tragedy
it lies in the silence
the still of the storm
the quiet violence
it’s wrapped itself up in blankets and pillows
and gone to sleep

our tragedy is the mouths with no motion
the questions we ask
but the answers unspoken

we sit here together
we laugh
we smile, but we bleed

bleed, bleed
