When the Words Go Away

The snow's coming faster, my view round the bend
A beautiful valley tucked into a glen
Can barely be seen
But where is the wind, where is the noise, where are the voices again?

Locked in a capsule for time without end
Watching the world through a pane or a lens
There's nothing to fear when there's nobody near
But silence can kill and there's lots of it here

We decided to part, each make a new start
But I didn't know what you take when you go
Now I'm beholden to silence not golden
There's nothing to say
When the words go away

Embraced isolation is never a choice
I long for the comfort I get from your voice
The vacuum of sound that you leave when you go
Is spreading the silence around us like snow

We decided to part, each make a new start
But I didn't know what you take when you go
Now I'm beholden to silence not golden
There's nothing to say
When the words go away
