silence lyrics – pj harvey

all those places
where i recall the memories
that gripped me
and pinned me down

i go to these places
intending to think
to think of nothing
no antic*p*te

and somehow expect
you’ll find me there
that by some miracle
you’d be aware

i’d risen this morning
determined to break
the spell of my longing
and not to think

i freed myself from my family
i freed myself from work
i freed myself
i freed myself
and remained alone

and in my thinking
steal you away
though you never wanted me
anyway

silence
silence
silence
silence
