lyrics

They gave it all they could
Through the needles and frozen years
But they never said a word

Sealed lips mumbling
Stories of the people they have loved
Bare skin shivering
From the night air flowing through their minds
Truth awakening

Silence so understood
All of the promises over time
But they never said a word

Sealed lips mumbling
Stories of the people they have loved
Bare skin shivering
From the night air flowing through their minds
Truth awakening

Hollow right to the end
Decades of nothingness
But they never said a word
Never
