One by one the clock ticks forward
forward, later into the night.
One by one the friends leave
leave, to join their lives.
One by one you say your peace
peace, until the sun's rise.
But not for me, as I say so long
with each person passing there
is a difference in the song.
Like a well orchestrated piece of music
Beautiful in it's beginning, then
fading until it reaches the end
for me there's only silence where
love once was, was at the end.
I knew how loud silence could be
I've heard it well before.
But I never knew how black
black could be, when stared upon by silence.
