wall of silence lyrics – chris de burgh

hollywood is such a dream,
and when you’re only seventeen, it’s wonderful,
a movie man said she could be a star,
a beauty queen, or a cover girl,
she believes and packs up her things,
and the wall of silence begins;

every night was party night,
she was everyone’s delight, he let her stay,
and when he’d had enough, he threw her out,
and she found work in a small cafe,
when she called they put her on hold,
and the wall of silence grows;

give me a break,
give me a break,
this is hollywood,
open the door,
open the door,
what am i going to do,
when the money runs out,
and there isn’t any doubt,
that i’ll have nowhere to go.

hollywood is just a dream,
but when you’re only seventeen, it’s magical,
she went home to hide away,
she wore her sadness like a veil, and closed the door,
till the day she smiles and recalls,
and the wall of silence falls…
