Lyrics
Silence is simply the absence of sound, Darkness the absence of light
My life is made up of silence and darkness, Since the absence of you from my sight
We became birds of a different feather, Encountering storms we could neither one weather

l defy anyone to define me away, My heart can't go on this-a-way
Nearness is simply the absence of absence, Wrong is the absence of right
My life is made up of the absence of nearness, Since the absence of you from my sight
We became birds of a different feather, Encountering storms we could neither one weather

l defy anyone to define me away, My heart can't go on this-a-way
