Silent Night (After the Fight) Back to Album

hear the rain on the window
i never noticed it so loud
and the clickin’ of the clock
makin’ wall shaking sounds

now was that noise the icebox
or you turning on the light
three a.m. as a fool tries to tell himself
you’ll be back tonight

ch; silent night, after the fight
who’s wrong or right
it don’t matter anymore
silent night, after the fight
i can’t stand the quiet
since you walked out the door

well, i never knew a heartbeat
could keep someone so wide awake
and when that board creaks in the hallway
i can see my mind about to break

and lying here without you
the silence is so loud i can’t sleep
but the loudest sound of all is
the teardrops dripping down my cheek
