I Will Not Be Silent

Your gloomy skies hang over me, dark and cold and threatening,
The wind is knocking me 'round again.
I've grown tired of huddling beneath these blankets wearing thin,
Waiting quietly for the rain.

How long must I be silent?
How long must I be silent?

I can't remember sunny skies. There's always grey in your blue eyes,
But rain has never come pouring in.
Your threats are slowly growing old, my heart is slowly growing cold,
I think it's time for the winter's end.

And if anything comes crashing down, it will be me.
I'll be the thunder rolling. I'll be the lightning streak.
And if anyone can break the sky, it will be me.
When it rolls down the mountain, where will you be?

For I will not be silent
No I will not be silent.

Your gloomy skies hang over me, dark and cold and threatening,
The wind is knocking me 'round again.
I've grown tired of huddling beneath these blankets wearing thin,
Waiting quietly for the rain.

And if anything comes crashing down, it will be me.
I'll be the thunder rolling. I'll be the lightning streak.
And if anyone can break the sky, it will be me.
When it rolls down the mountain, where will you be?
