"Nothing in the Silence" as written by Sarah Martin, Stuart Murdoch, Richard Colburn, Michael Cooke, Christopher Geddes, Stephen Jackson and Isobel Campbell....
Hello world, this is me.
Life should be,fun for everyone.

Every now and then I'm insecure,
Let me show you life can be so pure
Seize the day,wear a big,happy smile on your face.
On every life a little rain will fall,
That won't change my attitude at all
You are you,I am me,we'll be free.

Hello world,this is me,
Life should be,fun for everyone
Hello world,come and see,
Life should be,fun for everyone

Life is easy if you wear a smile
Just be yourself,don't ever change your style.
I like you,you like me,
Let's have fun,be happy

Look into my eyes and tell me straight
For you,I'll make the whole world wait
Let me know,if it's so,let it show

Hello world,this is me,
Life should be,fun for everyone
Hello world,come and see,
This is me

Come on baby,don't be afraid.
Come on baby,it's not too late.
Say you do,won't you open up the door,
And let me in.

Di da di,yeah.
Di,di.
Yeah,yeah,yeah.
Open up the door,
For me,yeah.
Yeah,yeah.
Mmmhh,mmhh,yeah.

Hello world,this is me,
Life should be,mmhh,mmmh,yeah,fun for everyone
Hello world,come and see,
Life should be,fun for everyone
Hello,world,this is me,fun for me,
For me,yeah,everyone.

    General CommentThe penultimate verse ends,
    "But search her heart for evidence,
    Search her soul for proof".

    Beautiful song. Sounds like two girls arguing over a guy/girl, but I suspect it's something a bit more transcendental...

    General CommentThis song is beautiful! The music espeicially right before the "Allow me then a little time
    To listen to their voices" stanza.
    a.m.a.z.i.n.g.

    I love it. I think its about a girl who tells the truth and who is honest, and someone who is not honest, and not really a good person
    "She talks of clarity and silence
    Of beauty and of truth
    But search her heart for evidence,
    Search her soul for proof"
    Because "she" does not know of silence, whereas the speaker knows silence and understands silence, and understands beauty and truth, and even though the "she" character talks of clarity and truth, its only talk, and the speaker's silence is the real proof that the speaker is the a good honest person.

    I love it. I can't believe it only has one comment!
