Soft light, total silence
So tired to take the table near the door
The table near the door
Sat back on the fire
I'm only as stable as I choose to show
If I choose to show
But where were you that night?
When I was...

Well, I feel that this an explosion
Nobody else could ever really know
I will follow you anywhere

You say you don't believe in science
You're always afraid of what you can't control
I will follow you anywhere
But where were you that night?
When I was...

When I was calling for the answer
That you probably shouldn't know
Well, it feels like flames surrounding me here
When you were calling with your question
When all I needed was to know
Well, it feels like flames surrounding me here

Unkempt and overcaffeinated
I walked the forty steps to the moon
You met me

You say you don't believe in science
You're always ashamed of what you're willing to lose
I will follow you anywhere
But where were you that night?
When I was...

When I was calling for the answer
That you probably shouldn't know
Well, it feels like flames surrounding me here
When you were calling with your question
When all I needed was to know
Well, it feels like flames surrounding me here

So this is it
So this is it
So this is the silence
So this is the silence we became
It's never quite
It's never quite over
It's never quite over in the sorrow

When I was calling for the answer
That you probably shouldn't know
Well, it feels like flames surrounding me here
When you were calling with your question
When all I needed was to know
Well, it feels like flames surrounding me here

    General CommentThis song means so much to me, I can't even relate it to a webpage comment. I told Will about it when I got backstage at the last concert I went to... it was so bittersweet. =]

    But anyways, I digress. Awesome song. It definitely has a great meaning to it.
