" Well behaved women rarely make history."


And I’ve got radio silence
From here to the edge of town
I keep starring waiting for the thing to ring
Waiting for someone to take the time
And call out my name

Slamming my fingers against the table
I sit back, silently cursing
All those friends
With there smiling faces

Said we’d hangout
Tell each other’s secrets
Whisper desperate dreams and hopes
While sipping down lies

And I’ve got radio silence
From here to the edge of town
I keep starring waiting for the thing to ring
Waiting for someone to take the time
And call out my name

I take the keys and take the car
Driving in circles till my fingers unclench
Until the tears stop flowing
And my face resembles sanity

Heartbreak lines blast from the speakers
And I keep screaming in the backdoor
Roads around this stupid small town

And I’ve got radio silence
From here to the edge of town
I keep starring waiting for the thing to ring
Waiting for someone to take the time
And call out my name

Someone once told me,
You’ll go far
Keep your head high
And let those friends who won’t stay
Just let em’ go
They keep to the night, while you’ll just keep on shining

And I’ve got radio silence
From here to the edge of town
I keep starring waiting for the thing to ring
Waiting for someone to take the time
And call out my name

Would some one call out my name?
Make me feel like I’m wanted for
More than those little escapes into
Safe, secure supervised sleepovers

Will someone callout my name,
And pick me from me from my own self-pity

And I’ve got radio silence
From here to the edge of town
I keep starring waiting for the thing to ring
Waiting for someone to take the time
And call out my name

Even with technology on the weekends your friends don't call, text, or message you to do anything. And, sometimes it just makes me so frustrated. I was watching an old war movie, and the word radio silence was said by one of the characters and it gave me the idea for this piece. Hope you like it!
