I don’t know why I get sadder every day
I keep my head held high, though I always feel its weight

And the magic that I felt as a child
Every time that song would play
It’s gone away

I don’t know why I can’t seem to stay awake
I know that I should try, but I don’t think I can change

Cause the wonder that I felt as a child
Moon at night and sun each day
It’s gone away

But if you make no noise, make no noise, you’ll hear my heartbeat singing out:
"This too will pass, this too will pass, this too will pass"
It won’t let me cave

I don’t know why you think that I’ll be okay
When every moment I’m not around you I just break

No, I’m not as strong a man as some
I’ve been lucky but I’ve not been brave
Here comes the pain

But if you make no noise, make no noise, you’ll hear my heartbeat singing out

No, I’m not as strong a man as some
I’ve been lucky but I’ve not been brave
Here comes the pain

And so I find that I smile anyway
And try to end each night with a prayer for each new day
Maybe tomorrow I’ll hear that song I used to play
Maybe the notes will sound like they did when I was eight

Yes, every child knows the meaning of life
But as we grow it slips away
That’s why we pray

But if you make no noise, make no noise, you’ll hear my heartbeat singing out:
"This too will pass, this too will pass, this too will pass"
It won’t let me break
Oh no, it never lets me break
