she fell in love with silence


composers
Music: Owen Parker
Lyrics: Jim Kerr

background
"Involves the shattered emotions of a victim of domestic abuse as she pauses to question how to make changes in life. Far from being overburdened with its subject "She Fell In Love With Silence" bounces along with a searing melody that delights and somehow projects the feeling that "the blows will stop."" - Jim

The song was debutted by Billy Sloan on his show of the 4th April 2010.


The song She Fell In Love With Silence deals with a very serious subject. What inspired this song?
What I like about the song first of all is that under the surface itís sounds like optimistic, has a beautiful melody, pop song rhythm. The title sounds beautiful as well and it is. But the story actually came from an article, a sad article. I think it was in The Independent. I read about a victim of domestic abuse and why people put up with it for so long. And there was like: "I put up with it because I had nowhere else to go. Or they donít know how or whatever". But within this story the woman actually she manages to get away. And she got to the North of Scotland [where] there was a relative that had a little house. And she said she literally fell in love with silence. And within that silence she was able to put things in to perspective and so on. It really struck me. And I guess, you take things in and it came out.


Itís a very serious subject but the song is not depressive but hopeful. So where do you take the optimism and the hope from?
Well, she did in the end make the break. At least there she did in the end make the break. I actually know a close friend of mine as well. A super intelligent women, super intelligent, spent eight, nine years in a seriously abusive relation. And when I was saying: But youíre intelligent! You could have made the plan to make the break... And she said: "Itís not like that when youíre in it!" And it really made me think. You can get addicted to the dynamic of it because you fight and then the peace afterwards because you make up with it. So, I can only say in that case the fact that she eventually did make the break gave me, in her case, kind of brought a happy conclusion.

lyrics
When the moon shone through and the lightening stopped,
She fell in love with silence,
She fell in love again,
Memories of violence, washed away again.
When the the sun is up and the world feels new,
Before the clouds rush in to obscure the view.
She fell in love with silence, fell in love again,
Once she was an island, so separate from the main.

She fell in love with silence,
Fell in love with truth,
Sparkled like a diamond,
Thinking of her youth.

When happiness returns, you'll see,
Inside her head, sad melodies.
Ah - She fell in love with silence,
Fell in love with all.
No more violence, no memories at all.
She fell in love with silence,
Fell in love again,
Stripped away the violence,
Took away the pain,
Fell in love with silence.

How can you say this is all?
There's only one way? Is there only one way?
Only one way? Only one way?

Ah - she fell in love with silence,
Fell in love with all.
No more violence, no memories at all.
She fell in love with silence,
Fell in love again,
Stripped away the violence,
Took away the pain.

She fell in love with silence.
Fell in love again.
Silence.
She couldn't leave at all.
