They're coming to take our resolve away.
To steal all the progress that we have made.
Our backs to the wall, but our hands gripped like steel,
and we'll never regret; though they say that we will.

We'll smile at the sound of silence...
These voices say that we'll die - we'll fade by the road as cities fly by.
We will survive and hearing silence, we'll smile when it hurts to be in love.

I'd take it all back if it meant gaining more but I've never fought this hard for you before.
They all say stop, but these time zones have shown what you mean to me and just how far I'll go.

We'll smile at the sound of silence...
These voices say that we'll die - we'll fade by the road as cities fly by.
We will survive and hearing silence, we'll smile when it hurts to be in love.

    General CommentI'm so surprised that there are so few people commenting on Staple's music. It's awesome stuff... Anyway, Staple's lead singer said that this song was written for the guitarist and the rest of the band. It's about being away on tour from their families, their wives in particular, I think.

    General Comment"I wrote this in honor of our guitarist and all the musicians who are married or are trying their hardest to maintain a relationship while being on the road. I think it can be a testament to greater love, rather than less, that they are willing to live this life. They’re fighting through it. This suggests that they love each other dearly because they haven’t given up and are willing to make one of the most demanding schedules work in their lives." - Darin Keim (Staple)
