You lift me up
And knock me down
I'm never sure just what to feel when you're around
I speak my heart
But don't know why
Cause you don't never really say what's on you mind

It's like
I'm walking on broken glass
I wanna know but I don't wanna ask

So say you love me
Or say you need me
Don't let the silence
Do the talking
Just say you want me
Or you don't need me
Don't let the silence
Do the talking

It's killing me
(Love in silence)
It's killing me
(Love in silence)
It's killing me
(Love in silence)

You let me in
But then sometimes
Your empty eyes just make me feel so cold inside
When I'm with you
It's like rolling dice
Don't know where or how you're gonna make me cry

So say you love me
Or say you need me
Don't let the silence
Do the talking
Just say you want me
Or you don't need me
Don't let the silence
Do the talking

It's killing me
(Love in silence)
It's killing me, yeah
(Love in silence)
Wooooo
(Love in silence)

It's like
I'm (I'm) walking on (walking on) broken glass
I wanna know but I don't wanna ask

'Cause once you say it
You can't take it back
And this the end and please just fake it fast

So say you love me
Or say you need me
Don't let the silence (ooohhhh)
Do the talking
Just say you want me (say you want me)
Or you don't need me (but you don't want me)
Don't let the silence
Do the talking

Wooooooh
(Love in silence)

You lift me up
And knock me down
I'm never sure just what to feel when you're around
