Lyrics

Grown tired and weary brown eyes
Trying to feel your love through face time
Symphonies of dreams and highlights
Caught up in this crazy fast life
But baby, you’re not here with me

And I keep calling, calling
Keep calling ’cause

Now my heart awakes to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence

Now my heart awakes to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence

Getting hard to break through the madness
You’re not here, it never makes sense
Tidal waves of tears are crashing
No one here to save me drowning
‘Cause baby, you’re not here with me

And I keep calling, calling
Keep calling ’cause

Now my heart awakes to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence

Now my heart awakes to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence

I know I’m stronger and I’m capable
I know it’s all in my head
But I keep calling, calling
Calling, calling, oh…

Now my heart awakes to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence

Now my heart awakes to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence
And it beats to the sound of silence
