When no one is around
A pin could drop
and fill the silence with a million sounds

All that I wish for is to hear
The creak of your shoes when you walk
To smell the scent of your aftershave
And the sound of gentle breathing as you sleep

But right now all I can do is
Watch the flame in the fireplace
and wait for you

And the quiet rushes through my life
like the wind rushing through the forest
