"Silence" as written by Jens Becker, Chris Boltendahl and Manfred Schmidt....
You're lying there, I hear no silent cry
A nameless spirit under the cloudy sky
You've left my life and you left my heart
I feel endless days of present and past
Eagles fly into the night
And the world seems to die
Please come back into my life
I need you warming light

[Chorus]
I open the grave
And close your eyes
I touch your face
Where your spirit lies
Feel the silence
Feel the silence

Why have you left me - my beautiful one
I can't accept it that you have gone
I kiss your lips, your face, your golden hair
I'll see you in heaven, I will meet you there
Eagles fly into the night
And the world seems to die
Please come back into my life
I need you warming light

[Chorus]

I open the grave
And close your eyes
I touch your face
Where your spirit lies
Feel the silence
Feel the silence

    General CommentThis song is really beautiful. It's about a guy visiting his girl's grave or funeral and wants her back. THIS is how you write lost loved one songs, not that emo bull ****. I love the part near the end where they sing "Feel the silence" with the guitars in the background. It's just so solemn and awesome.

    I can almost see myself crying over my girlfriend's open casket with this song playing.. I don't want that to happen...
