"Feel The Silence" as written by and John Rzeznik....
You lie awake at night
With blue eyes that never cry
All you remember now
Is what you feel

The truth remains
In midnight conversations
I asked for this moment
But you turned away

Sad like a lonely child
Broken the day you're born
I held the light to you
But I was so vain

And you remain
A promise unfulfilled
I ask you for more
But you push me away

And if we feel the silence
Holding this all inside
Everything means more now than
Words could explain

And if we feel the silence
Holding this all inside us
Looking for something more to say
I don't know where I'm going
Only know where I been
But you move through my soul like a hurricane wind
We've been so lost for so long
I don't know how to get back again
And we're drowning in the water
That flows under this bridge
When you're fighting the current
You forget how to live
And I wanted to reach you but I don't know where to begin
And you remain
A promise unfulfilled until today

And if we feel the silence
Holding this all inside
Everything means more now than
Words could explain
And if we feel the silence
Leaving this all behind us
When it's gone what will you say

How do we hold on [Repeats]

You lie awake at night
With blue eyes that never cry

    General CommentI have never heard this song, but I think that just by reading the lyrics, it is an amazing song. You may know someone who you care about. They may be struggling with something. Maybe their life is hard. But you can't reach them. You only know that something is wrong, and no matter how much you would like to help, they can't seem to let you in. It's really quite sad, but true. It happens

    General Commenti think this song is about dealing with someone who is constantly dealing with their problems and troubles...he wants to help this person and become part of their world and he's basically just saying that sometimes silence is more powerful than words

    General Commentcan't believe more haven't posted on this song. when i first heard the song i thought "if we feel the silence" line was something to do with an ending of a relationship, because you feel something is wrong and you don't talk when you are about to break up with somebody. However after reading the lyrics i agree with music psycho and gonletitslide. It's about helping a friend open up to the world and be themselves when they are going through a tough time. My favourite song on the album along with let love in. dolls rock!

    General CommentThis song is one of the only songs off of the new album that I like. The chorus is really atmospheric and well done, but lyrically it's one of the weakest things Johnny has ever written.

    General Commenti agree with gladius, "you lie awake at night, with blue eyes that never cry" is an amazing line. to me it symbolizes someone who is so lost or depressed that they just can't cry, they don't know who they are or why they're so insignificant.. or something along those lines. hard to explain. but incredible song.

    General CommentHe made a promise to her, but hasn't been able to fufill it until now. Despite the fact that shes been hurt, he wants to be mroe to her then he is now, but not to her. I think that they have a feeling for one anotehr that means more to them then they can explain.

    General CommentThis song is very touching to me..

    I was fighting with a female friend and I realize that it wasn't the same, and that I wanted to reach her but I never knew how to do it... That's why I think this song is about a relation (friendship or love relationship) that is ending, he knows where he's been but he doesn't know where he's going, he remembers how this relation used to be, but it just not the same, and maybe it will be not the same anymore. Maybe this song is not about a friendship, but phrases like "and if we feel the silence holding this all inside us looking for something more to say..." were saying what I was living, with the silence bringing our friendship down and me trying to say something to break the silence.

    This song has amazing lines "you lie awake at night with blue eyes that never cry", "everything means more now than words could explain" and my favorite:

    "when it's gone, what will you say?" That's why I'm asking now, what will I say?...
