"Silence" as written by Carrie Michalka, Amanda Joy Michalka and Alyson Michalka....
I'll bet two years, I'll bet one year
I'll bet those years you won't be here
I guess I'll keep, I guess you'll keep
Every memory
Sadly, we may never be
I'll bet my tears, I'll bet your tears
I'll bet those tears over time could disappear

Wait a minute, I have more to say
And I can't rid of this need to me
I need you more than you'll ever know
I still do, willing to let it show

I need a minute just to get to you
I feel like I might be getting through
Come over and say nothing
Silence is everything (oh)

I know, I know
Feelings can show
If you let go
It must be told (It must be told)
That I've got a hold
On what we used to have

I will forgive if you forget
All the things we said
Let's accept it
I need you more than you'll ever know
I still do, willing to let it show

I need a minute just to get to you
I feel like I might be getting through
Come over and say nothing
Silence is everything

(Shh, silence)

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs.

    To me, it's about a post-breakup.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful
    I agree with the post-breakup

    Just something about this song makes me stop what I'm doing, and it makes me want to cry =/
    Haha.. yeah. I guess it's too familiar.

    General CommentOh this song means so much to me .. first time i heard it i just thought wauw..
    I also agree that its about 2 lovers that broke up..but actually she doesn't want it to be over..but it's difficult for her to explain. So that's why she says Come over and say nothing..silence is everything. Because the feeling she gets when she's around him tells everything. There's no need to say any words. And that's exactly how i felt just a couple weeks ago when my ex came over.. we didnt even need te words to know that we still had feelings for each other. Isnt that beautiful ? :) xox---

    General CommentI love this song, it's the best on Insomniatic.
    I think it's about a girl who loves her best friend but he's leaving and they only just now told each other their feelings. She's saying 'we don't need to speak, just come be with me before you go. Silence is everything.'
    Eg: more than words.
    I think this is the perfect song to describe Phil of the Future as lame as that sounds. "I'll bet two years, I'll bet one year, I'll bet those years you won't be here," and "if only time could disappear."
    I love this song, especially the Irish theme.
