you don't call or write for years
and if you think you know then state the obvious
screams inside your eyes
and i said enough don't blink and take this
i promise that i've let you down
it's all i need to hear for now

and anything but this
i'll cover my eyes and wait for
anything but this
i'll cover my eyes and wait for
light to break the silence
and hold a hand that once gets in
i'll cover my eyes and pull you in so close

oh don't you seem sincere
if you ask me what i want the words disappear
because i held it in too long
and i think you need to hear
what i believe is the only reason that
my prayers have fallen on deaf ears

and anything but this
i'll cover my eyes and wait for
anything but this
i'll cover my eyes and wait for
light to break the silence
and hold a hand that once gets in
i'll cover my eyes and pull you in so close

break the silence
break the silence

and anything but this
i'll cover my eyes and wait for
anything but this
i'll cover my eyes and wait for
light to break the silence
and hold a hand that once gets in
i'll cover my eyes and pull you in so close

    General CommentI'm suprised no one has commented this song.
    well... I heard it is only available on Take Action Vol. 6.

    But I honestly, it has something to do with some sort of abuse.
    That they are afraid to come out about what has happened, and they just wait silently until someone helps.
    "my prayers have fallen on deaf ears"
    This possibly means that when he asked for help, any sort, it seemed like not even God could help him.
