Song Description

They aren't speaking. He writes her a song to try to break the impasse. He asks her to name it. She can choose making up or breaking up.

Story Behind the Song

No back story. Just pure craft.

Lyrics

VERSE
We started off like some Roman candles shot high into the air
Continuing well into the night; we had a certain flair
But as often is the case with things that burn red hot
We only made it just so far into the melting pot

PRE-CHORUS
I think you tried really hard; I think I did too
But right now we're not speaking, so here's what I thought to do

CHORUS
The silence wanted a picture, so I painted you this song
It's a haunting mixture of what went right and wrong
If I'm too hurt to tell you how I feel in so many words
Then maybe (just maybe) this simple song will let my words be heard

SOLO

PRE-CHORUS
As yet the song has no name; I'd like to share that with you
It could be about recalling the love or it could just make us blue

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Yes, the silence wanted a picture, but I'll leave its name up to you
