I have composed a melody for this lyric by Nikki Nikita in 2013.
You can listen to it. Rough demo: my voice + ukulele.

IN SILENCE (#244)
___________________________________________
Lyrics: © Nikki Nikkita, 2013.
Melody: © Guy E. Trepanier, 2013.

Intro: 4 bars (key of C)

The words we’ve said they fall down ...
The lies we’ve made they crush now ...
Our eyes scream don’t leave me ...
Our breath whispers forgive me ...

In silence, In silence
I hear you
In silence, In silence
I do hear you


The plans we’ve shred they merge now ...
The trust that faded it shines now ...
Our hands beg don’t leave me ...
Our lips spell out forgive me ...

In silence, In silence
I hear you
In silence, In silence
I do hear you


Every heartbeat is a shout
We can’t tone it down
Every look speaks out loud
We can’t talk it down anymore

In silence, In silence
I hear you
In silence, In silence
I do hear you


In silence, In silence
I hear you
In silence, In silence
I do hear you


I do hear you
In silence

Hey Guy,

Interesting melody, and very clever lyrics. I would like to see you get the uke a bit closer to the mic--a bit overpowered by your strong voice--a good quality I might add, but the balance could be improved to allow a more musical production--JMO.

Enjoyed this'n, nice write mate!

You definitely kept the Simple & Singable...

Today I was looking for sign if I should speak up on something that has bothered me for quite sometime...After hearing this, I got my sign as I realized there is no need for me to say anything.

My silence says it all...
