lyrics

Silence Becomes Song

How much heaviness can a single note lift?
What is the weight of a single chord,
A single sound?
Become hollow like a bird's wing,
A bird's wing,
Echo with music that begins
Where thinking ends.
Music wraps ribbons of Hallelujah
Around the darkest havens of the heart.
Ah, ah, ah...

With two cupped hands,
Keep reaching
Into the the blue of the sky.
Listen...
Silence becomes song.
Silence becomes song.

Burning like paper we fizzle out,
We burn too bright.
If we were birds we would use our wings
To hold up the sky.
Let your hollow bones be filled with embers,
Filled with light.
Give me the fuel for the right fire,
The right fire.
i know your perfect wings
Will hold you up high.
You can trust the stars to hold up the sky.
Ah, ah, ah...

With two cupped hands,
Keep reaching
Into the the blue of the sky.
Listen...
Silence becomes song.
Silence becomes song.

I'm not fire, I'm not ash;
But the phoenix who rises through both.
You're not lost, you're not found;
What you feel is not what you are.

Listen...
Silence becomes song.
Silence becomes song.
