"Awkward Silence"

I can feel you stare at me
So I look you in the eye
You start to move your lips
But then you close them tightly

Because there's nothing to say

Sometimes I want to try
To tell you how I feel
But it all gets lost inside
It's enough to make me cry

Because there's nothing to say

In a war of wordless violence
We're casualties of our awkward silence

When I lay by your side
At the end of the day
You ask what's on my mind
But I just turn off the light

Because there's nothing to say

In a war of wordless violence
We're casualties of our awkward silence
