The Silence Gets Louder

It's been a rough, hectic 5 weeks. Same reason - Di's health. She's somewhat stabilized now but bed-bound.

This is a bit unusual vocal style for me - but as always, the vocal is suspect. On the chorus I've employed my attempt with falsetto. I wrote the lyric in 1996 but never found suitable music for the words. I'm not sure this is where it will end up; but it's where I have at the moment. Open to opinions and suggestions.

One specific question: Should the drums be louder? I think so but interested in hearing your thoughts.

The Silence Gets Louder
© March 1996, Alan D. David, BMI All Rights Reserved

Two aching hearts so far apart
Once filled with the joy of living
Drifting slowly day by day
To the wrong side of forgiving

We don't speak, we don't hear
We're like shadows on the wall
Could it be, that possibly
We’ve already said it all

And the silence gets louder
Each day
As the love that we had
Slips away
I know we can’t go on
Living this way
As the silence gets louder
Each day

Talk to me … say anything
I can’t take this silent pain
Let’s find a way to talk this through
No matter who's to blame

Here's a 4th verse that I originally wrote in the lyric. I left it out here due to song length I didn't want to go much beyond four minutes.

We have to find the words
There’s no hope if we don’t try
With everything to be said
I don’t want to say goodbye
