Goo Goo Dolls – Feel The Silence

In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take,
Relationships we were afraid to have,
and decision we waited too long to make..
As the saying goes, silence is often the loudest cry…

 

Well, I used to hear this song during late at night. It has so much meaning and depth. Sometimesn, It just feels like this song’s written for me. I know it isn’t, but having it feel that way is what music’s supposed to do to you, right?

The first time I heard this song it hit me like brick wall. It’s the kind of song that make me thinking about life in general. This song makes me feel like I’m apart of something a lot bigger than myself and my own problems.

I think this song is about dealing with someone who he really care about. He wants to help this person and become part of her world. She may be struggling with something. Maybe her life is hard, or she’s going through a hard time.

Even though he thinks he may know a great deal about her, he can’t help her. He only know that something is wrong, yet he can’t reach her. He feels like she hasn’t told him everything, that there is so much more to her life that she hasnt’ shared with him yet (positive or negative things).

And he’s trying so hard to let her trust him. But, she just won’t completely let her guard down for some reason. And no matter how much he would like to help, she can’t seem to let him in.

And after a while of being persistent, he come to realize that she will tellhim in her own time when she is ready … Because, sometimes what a person needs most is a hand to hold and a heart to understand, right? It’s really quite sad, but true. It happens…

Yup, hope you enjoy the song…

You lie awake at night
With blue eyes that never cry
All you remember now
Is what you feel

The truth remains
In midnight conversations
I asked for this moment
But you turned away

Sad like a lonely child
Broken the day you’re born
I held the light to you
But I was so vain

And you remain, A promise unfulfilled
I ask you for more, But you push me away..

Reff : And if we feel the silence
Holding this all inside us
Everything means more now than
Words could explain

And if we feel the silence
Holding this all behind us
Looking for something more to say

I don’t know where I’m going, Only know where I been
But you move through my soul like a hurricane wind

We’ve been so lost for so long
I don’t know how to get back again..

And we’re drowning in the water
That flows under this bridge
When you’re fighting the current
You forget how to live
And I wanted to reach you but I don’t know where to begin

And you remain
A promise unfulfilled until today..

Reff : And if we feel the silence
Holding this all inside
Everything means more now than
Words could explain..

And if we feel the silence
Leaving this all behind us
When it’s gone what will you say

How do we hold on
How do we hold on
How do we hold on
How do we hold on
How do we hold on

You lie awake at night
With blue eyes that never cry
