Just Hear Me Out

Today I saw your face
You had tears running down from your eyes
I wanted to say something
But no words came out
Just silence
Always silence

Our silence is louder than screams
Why can’t we just say what we mean?
Is it so hard to tell the truth?
Would you rather I lie?
Just listen to what I have to say
Just hear me out

I’m talking about life
I’m talking about love
I’m talking about everything that hurts
I’m talking about the past
I’m talking about the future
I’m talking about all of the above
Because we never say
What we really mean
And it leaves us in the dark
I’m saying what needs to be said
So just hear me out

I never thought it would come down to this
Broken silence
Broken hearts
It’s what I’ve become familiar with
I want to break the silence
But I don’t know how
So all that’s left is the nothingness
That has swallowed us whole

Our silence is louder than screams
Why can’t we just say what we mean?
Is it so hard to tell the truth?
Would you rather I lie?
Just listen to what I have to say
Just hear me out

I’m talking about life
I’m talking about love
I’m talking about everything that hurts
I’m talking about the past
I’m talking about the future
I’m talking about all of the above
Because we never say
What we really mean
And it leaves us in the dark
I’m saying what needs to be said
So just hear me out

All that’s left is silence
There is nothing but silence
How can I break the silence?
Someone just hear me out

Our silence is louder than screams
Why can’t we just say what we mean?
Is it so hard to tell the truth?
Would you rather I lie?
Just listen to what I have to say
Just hear me out

I’m talking about life
I’m talking about love
I’m talking about everything that hurts
I’m talking about the past
I’m talking about the future
I’m talking about all of the above
Because we never say
What we really mean
And it leaves us in the dark
I’m saying what needs to be said
So just hear me out
