Coming to terms with the end of a relationship.


Silent drums, beating away in my heart
Always occurs when we part, I don’t want to be free
Silent drums, how can you know how I feel
Pounding inside is so real, it’s tearing at me
Since you told me we are through, all my thoughts are full of you
Silent drums - staying with me

Silent drums, missing a beat when you’re near
Starting when visions appear, of your face in my mind
Silent drums, why do they trouble me so
How long must I wait ‘til they go, have I really been blind
Now I know the flame has gone, there’s no point in staying on
Silent drums - staying with me

In my heart, I just know that our time as a couple is over
Times that we shared and things we enjoyed are all gone
Those who said we were blessed with good fortune and covered in clover
Are eating their words now we’ve shown that they got it all wrong

Silent drums, gradually losing their force
Taking their natural course, while I’m starting again
Silent drums, telling me I cant forget
Reminding that feelings are set, causing unbearable pain
But it’s time to open eyes, and look forward and realise
Silent drums - staying with me

There are things that I must do
To start my life anew
Silent drums - playing with me
