Ilse DeLange – Drown Us Out Lyrics

Drown Us Out Lyrics – Ilse DeLange

Something’s living here beside us, hovering around this place
Something’s breathing up the air, something’s filling up the empty space
It’s the honesty hiding, in the words we never say
Standing in the dark crying, trying not to fade away

I know right now it’s too hard to say these things out loud
But if we don’t break it down, it’s the silence that will drown us out
Through the noise, it’s been getting hard to hear your voice, it is such a lonely sound
Gotta find a way to turn it down, it’s the silence that will drown us out
Drown us out

Everyday’s a distant friend and the night is like an enemy
Am I the stranger in this bed or is the stranger lying next to me
I’ve been giving just enough, having promised you the best of me
Just a shadow of our love, that’s not what we need

I know right it’s too hard to say these things out loud
But if we don’t break it down, it’s the silence that will drown us out
Through the noise, it’s been getting hard to
Hear your voice, it is such a lonely sound
Gotta find a way to turn it down
It’s the silence that will drown us out

I can feel the water’s rising now
What you’re holding onto let it out
Even if the sky comes falling down
Falling down, falling down
I can feel the water’s rising now
What you’re holding back just let it out
Even if the sky comes falling down
Falling down, falling down

I know right now it’s too hard to say these things out loud
But if we don’t break it down, it’s the silence that will drown us out
