Track Name: Breaking Silence
It's getting hard to breathe now when I sit still
Not being able to break through these walls
That turn me into a demon in your eyes
And lay these scars across our hearts.

We won't get better by just ignoring
All these feelings that we lock inside.
I can't stand not having my best friend around,
But we both also need our time alone.

Life isn't so simple and unchanging.
There's always a way.
Now that we understand each other
We can start again.
Take things slow.
Just live our lives
And see how things go.

We distract ourselves by following our dreams,
But too many thoughts invade the SILENCE...

Opportunity knocks,
And dreams can change,
But it's the people that can't
Be replaced.

I believe there's still a way for us
To overcome this disease
That we've brought on to ourselves.
We both love being around each other, but first
We've gotta understand:

The reason why we love each other
Is because we're EXACTLY WHO WE ARE.
So leave your expectations behind.
I'll let be you, just let me be ME.
