Silent Treatment

SILENT TREATMENT - Written by Carroll Bryant



Why won’t you talk to me?
You never want to talk to me
I think you’re scared of me
What are you afraid of?

You never say what’s on your mind
I mean, what’s really on your mind?
You blow me off almost every time
When your world starts crashing down

Why do you leave me all alone?
Just standing in the silent zone?
Sometimes I would die just to hear a tone from your voice
Rather than to never hear what you know that you wanna say

This silent treatment chills my bones
You won’t even pick up the phone
Even if you heard a dial tone then you know
At least that would be some kind of noise anyway

You communicate with your eyes
Subtlety as you pass me by
Your grunt supplies me with
All the answers that I’m looking for

Well, could you just paint a sign?
You never really paint a sign
When everything’s out of control
You act like everything is fine

Why do you leave me all alone?
Just standing in the silent zone?
Sometimes I would die just to hear a tone from your voice
Rather than to never hear what you know that you wanna say

This silent treatment chills my bones
You won’t even pick up the phone
Even if you heard a dial tone then you know
At least that would be some kind of noise anyway

You won’t even snore for the fact that you just want to make a point
You used to talk in your sleep
Even that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore

Then what’s it all for?
Just pack up your things and walk out of the door
There’s your solution
Why won’t you talk to me?
You never want to talk to me
I think you’re scared of me
What are you afraid of?

Are you afraid that you still feel the same
As you did the first day we met and fell in love

What are you afraid of?

Just stop leaving me all alone
And standing in the silent zone
Sometimes I would die just to hear a tone from your voice
Rather than to never hear what you know that you wanna say

This silent treatment chills my bones
You won’t even pick up the phone
Even if you heard a dial tone then you know
At least that would be some kind of noise anyway

Why do you leave me all alone?
Sitting here in my home
Waiting by the telephone
Just talk to me
Can‘t you see what this silence is doing to me?

Tell me …. What are you afraid of?

Just stop leaving me all alone
