Stephen Duffy & The Lilac Time - The Silence lyrics

I acquired knowledge and remained a fool
And I required her to love me in my ignorance
She found that she could not save time
So she saved her breath
And she became the silence in my life

Was it the fear of God or just the fear of fear
That made a habit out of loving and kept her here?
You can’t turn on the sunshine
Like you can turn off the light
So she became the darkness in my life

Love's quiet inefficiency ran us down
Left us like the feelgood years left the old boomtown
I saw the ocean and the sea blue sky become one alone
As she became the silence in my life

I met you where the railway lines disappear
You said you learn to love among volunteers
But love involves conscription
Sometimes when you’re young but now
We sing between the silence in my life
Sing between the silence in my life

She became the silence in my life
She became the silence in my life
