She Knows

Story Behind The Song

I noticed this couple in a restaurant and they sat and ate across from each other without ever saying a word.

Song Description

A vignette of how two people can stay in a loveless marriage simply for the comfort, and due to the fact that neither one has the courage to move on. And so a quiet undercurrent of desperation exists.

Tempo Medium (111 - 130) Lead Vocal Male Vocal
Mood Troubled, Poignant Subject Dysfunctional Relations, Suspicion
Similar Artists Muse, Radiohead Language English
Era 2000 and later


She remembers how it used to be,
The way he'd look into her eyes,
How he'd hang on every word she'd say,
But now she chokes on muffled cries.

She knows that there's something wrong,
The way he never meets her gaze.
But if she tries to bring the matter up,
She knows he'll only run away.

He can never find the words to say,
And so he hides in the mundane.
A quiet desperation rules his mind,
And his indifference keeps him sane.

She knows that there's something wrong,
The way he never meets her gaze.
But if she tries to bring the matter up,
She knows he'll only run away.

They once shared dreams about their life,
And how she'd always be his wife,
Until their bodies turned to dust.
They used to share a sacred trust.
He suffocates beneath her stare,
While she accepts he'll never care,
So many words they'll never say,
But they keep going on this way.

She knows that there's something wrong,
The way he never meets her gaze.
But if she tries to bring the matter up,
She knows he'll only run away.

She knows that there's something wrong,
The way he never meets her gaze.
But if she tries to bring the matter up,
She knows he'll only run away.
