First song of 2016!

I wanted to give it a spare arrangement as that seemed to fit the theme of the song, so mostly a vocal piece. Thanks for listening!!

Singing In the Silence
© 2016 Colleen Dillon

Verse 1:
Singing in the silence
Out late in the dark
Pouring out a battered soul
In this lonely park

Singing in the silence
Not another sound
A voice escapes this lonely heart
Released but not yet found

Verse 2:
Singing in the silence
Sound bleeds like a stain
Cutting holes into the night
Darkness hides no pain

Singing in the silence
Breathless in the deep
So lost in this loneliness
Another lie won’t keep

Chorus / Bridge:
Thinking that it’s best to find
Noise and crowds and light
Hiding pain inside this heart
It’s time to put things right

Thinking that it’s best to find
Noise and crowds and light
Singing in the silence now
It’s time to put things right

Verse 3:
Singing in the silence
Strength begins to build
A bridge from here to over there
That hole begins to fill

Singing in the silence
Stronger each refrain
Time will heal this tattered soul
Singing through the pain
(repeat last 2 lines)

Very powerful Colleen! It reminds me of a flickering star in a dark sky or something on the wind. Beautiful poetry. Thank you for sharing it!

This is powerful. Sparse is the perfect approach and it accents your message perfectly. One after another . . . You just keep setting the bar higher!
