Silence is my favorite sound
It drips off your lips like nectar
As I wait for the shoe to drop
Rumor, sigh, and conjecture

Constant craving on the dance floor
Big band swing and a whiskey sour
Your sequined dress caught in my fingers
I’ll be pulling splinters out within the hour

Wooden bench and a metal chain
Birthday gift from the family
A simple motion, back and forth
Rock of ages, on your back porch

Cityscape sleeps in the distance
From the tower rings the bell of truth
You rest your head upon my shoulder
As squirrels scamper across the roof

I hear the sound of a train is coming
It’s heading north as far as I can tell
A siren to the restless thousands
As far down as Sylvan Dell
