Silent Conversation

Lyrics

I was deep in my thoughts, thoughts, thoughts 
when you looked at me my eyes were red 
something about me you caught, caught, caught 
I was running away from it 

When we first met, met, met 
you helped me stand on my two feet 
you became my escape, escape, escape 
you held out a hand and reached into my soul 
and I realized the tears I cry 
when you cross my mind 
and I know you’ll always be with me 

Even when I’m gone 
Time is passing by 
and I need you said I need you by my side 

Because of you my eyes are open 
I see the world so clearly you dragged me into 
This silent conversation 
My fears should become as real as you 

The tears I cried 
When you cross my mind 
and I know you’ll always be with me 
Even when I’m gone 
Time is passing by 
and I need you said I need you 
by my side 

You are my thoughts 
You are my words 
You are my memories 
You are mine 

You are my thoughts 
You are my words 
You are my memories 
You are mine 

Dragged me into the silent conversation 

I have to fade away into this silent conversation

Behind The Music

When Denny, Carly, and Alicia formed a songwriting team for The Dick & Jane Project they agreed on one element of their tune from the beginning: They didn’t want to write a love song. “The world has plenty of those”, they reasoned. Instead, they wanted a piece everyone could relate to and focus on that lonesome feeling everyone has sometimes when you just need someone to talk to. They even took extra care to exclude the gender of the song’s protagonist so more people could relate to it. Using Skype to discuss the ideas with their partnering band The First Street Heat (of Athens Ohio) they settled on a musical direction to reflect the introspective feel of the lyrics. Dutifully sticking to these instructions, the band returned with a song the girls loved.
