qanda – sign for silence lyrics

sign for silence

there was thunder in the sky that night
rattling the windows of the nursery
dragon shadows diving down the wall
so real i couldn’t help but scream

then my mother walked into the room
she came to set me free and scare the monsters all away
she pressed a finger to her lips and gently said to me…she said

“i wish you had, i wish you’d be a sign for silence
listen to the voice that speaks
a sign for silence”
calling people everywhere
a sign for silence…home

out with the “fellas” as a younger man
changing who i was to be a friend
taking chances on the late night streets
burning the candle from the other end

so i asked the mirror on the wall
“is this person that i want to be or do i want to be at all?”
i closed my eyes to fall asleep, and these words came to me

“i wish you had, i wish you’d be a sign for silence
listen to the voice that speaks
a sign for silence”
calling people everywhere
a sign for silence…home

this world is full of noise and violence
we all could use a little silence

sitting with my daughter in a quiet cafe
the day was coming when she went away
i had to tell her she would be ok
but struggled for the words to say

i tried to tell her that one thing is true
there was one thing that she had to do
i said, “to find the truth you have to take a look inside of you.”

i will shed a tear and wave goodbye
watching you take off and fly
towards a distant star that shines beyond this sky

“i wish you had, i wish you’d be a sign for silence
listen to the voice that speaks
a sign for silence”
calling people everywhere
a sign for silence…home
