Silenced By The Night Lyrics

In a city like mine there's no point in fighting

I close my eyes, see you and me driving.

If I am a river, you are the ocean

Got the radio on, got the wheels in motion


We were silenced by the night,

But you and I, we're gonna rise again

Divided from the light

I wanna love the way we used to then.


I lie in the dark, I feel I'm falling

Feel your hand on my back here, your voice calling

I'm out of my depth girl, stick close to me,

Because the people in this town, they look straight

through me


We were silenced by the night,

But you and I, we're gonna rise again

Divided from the light

I wanna love the way we used to then.


'Cause baby, I'm not scared of this world when you're here

And baby, I'm not scared of this world when you're here...


Ohhh, you and I, we're gonna rise again

Ohhh, you and I, we're gonna rise again


We were silenced by the night,

But you and I, we're gonna rise again

Divided from the light

I wanna love the way we used to then.

Such a pretty song. :) All Strangeland is perfect.

To my mind, this song is all about making up. Or trying to do it. It can be a couple trying to be in love with each other again after a few years of relationship too, like they used to be.

I love this song.

I think it's about a shy, unknown guy being having a relationship with a very popular girl. That seems to make the most sense for me.

My Interpretation
An error occured.

I think it's about a person who feels like the only destination is for the two of them to be together. "If I am a river, you are the ocean" strikes me as such.

An error occured.

To me it just sounds like someone unhappy with their location (city) and the people in it and they just wanna get in their car and leave with their significant other or a friend.

My Interpretation
An error occured.

This is just my opinion, and I apologize in advance if this paragraph is grammatically incorrect. So this is just my opinion. I usually read lesbian stories on Wattpad, and this song reminded me of a common scenario in those stories. And my takeaway from this song is that when the world is against you and tries to separate you, even if you have done nothing wrong, you both lie in the dark because you think you are safe. And when you tried to tell the world, they both rejected you. But, as the line goes, "Oh, you and I, we're gonna rise again" together you can rise from the darkness and, you know, fight for each other because, as long as you're together, there's nothing that matters anymore but the both of you. To recapitulate, what I'm saying is that even if the world is against you, even if society doesn't accept the both of you, it's fine as long as you stay together because you know that both of you can fight this messed up society together, just like how this line goes 'I'm not scared of this world when you're here'. That's just my take on this song. I'm sorry if I couldn't explain it better, but I hope you understood it just okay.
