She's one of my favourite artists/lyricists, I think she's amazing. Cheers for putting that up, thought maybe I'd contribute...

Silent all these years.

Excuse me but can I be you for a while?
My dog dont bite if you sit real still.
I got the anti-christ in the kitchen yellin' at me but yeah,
yeah I can hear it.
Got saved again by the garbage truck,
I got something to say ya know but nothing comes.
Yes I know what you think of me, you never shut up.
Yeah I can hear it.

But what if I'm a mermaid, in these jeans of yours with her name still on it?
Hey but I don't care coz sometimes, I said sometimes I hear my voice.
And it's been here,
Silent all these years.

So you found a girl who thinks really deep thoughts,
What’s so amazing about really deep thoughts?
Boy you’d best pray that I bleed real soon.
How’s that thought for ya?
My scream got lost in a paper cup,
I think there’s a heaven where the screams have gone,
I got 25 bucks and a cracker, do you think it’s enough,
to get us there?

Cause what if I’m a mermaid, in these jeans of his with her name still on it?
Hey but I don't care coz sometimes, I said sometimes I hear my voice.
And it's been here,
Silent all these years.

Years go by when I’ll still be waiting for somebody else to understand.
Years go by if I’m stripped of my beauty and the orange clouds raining in my head.
Years go by when I choke on my tears till finally there is nothing left.
One more casualty, you know we’re too easy, easy, easy.

Well I love the way we communicate,
Your eyes focus on my funny lip shape.
Let’s hear what you think of me now, but baby don’t look up -
The sky is falling.
Your mother shows up in a nasty dress and it’s your turn now to stand where I stand.
Everybody looking at you, don’t let go of my hand.
Well I can hear it...

But what if I’m a mermaid, in these jeans of yours with her name still on it?
Hey but I don't care coz sometimes, I said sometimes I hear my voice,
I hear my voice, I hear my voice,
And it's been here,
Silent all these years.
I’ve been here,
Silent all these years.
