Bastille The Silence Lyrics

Tell me a piece of your history

that you’re proud to call your own

Speak in words you picked up

as you walked through life alone

We used to swim in your stories

and be pulled down by their tide

Choking on the water, drowning, with no air in sight

Now you’ve hit a wall and it’s not your fault

My dear, my dear, my dear

Now you’ve hit a wall and you hit it hard,

My dear, my dear, oh dear

It is not enough to be dumbstruck

Can you fill this silence?

You must have the words in that head of yours

And oh, oh can you feel the silence?

I can’t take it anymore

Cause it is not enough to be dumbstruck

Can you fill the silence?

Tell me a piece of your history

that you’ve never said out loud

Pull the rug beneath my feet

and shake me to the ground

Wrap me around your fingers,

break the silence open wide

Before it seeps into my ears

and fills me up from the inside

Now you’ve hit a wall and you’re lost for words

My dear, my dear, my dear

Now you’ve hit a wall and you hit it hard

My dear, my dear, oh dear

It is not enough to be dumbstruck

Can you fill this silence?

You must have the words in that head of yours

And oh, oh can you feel the silence?

I can’t take it anymore

‘Cause it is not enough to be dumbstruck

Can you fill the silence?

If you give it a name then it’s already won

What you good for? What you good for?

If you give it a name then it’s already won

What you good for? What you good for?

If you give it a name then it’s already won

What you good for? What you good for?

If you give it a name then it’s already won

What you good for? What you good for?

Cause it is not enough to be dumbstruck

Can you fill the silence?

You must have the words in that head of yours

Oh, oh, can you feel the silence?

I can’t take it anymore,

Cause it is not enough to be dumbstruck, oh
