There's no one outside
It's just the wind blowing trees
Nothing there
Just the sound of guilty leaves
You can feel the cold inside

The rising moon
Looking down like a broken sun
Shining bright
So we can see what we've become
There is nowhere to hide inside

Why won't you say something now
Don't leave me hanging, cut me down
I miss the fire that was once in your eyes
Well come on and say something now

I close my eyes
I see the ghosts you keep within
Once I made them disappear
You know I did
And did I leave you all alone?

Come on and talk to me now
Courtesy of
Or forever hold your peace
It's all got so heavy
Gonna bring us to our knees
Come on and say something now

Say something
Say something
Say something now

Say something
Say something
Say something now

Ooh come on talk to me
Or forever hold your peace
It's all got so heavy
Gonna bring us to our knees
Come on and say something now
Say something to me
Or forever hold your peace
It's all got so heavy
Gonna bring us to our knees
Come on and say something now
Say something to me
Or forever hold your peace
I miss the fire that was once in your eyes
Come on and say something now

    To me it's about two people who felt something for each other when they first met. But after some time this initial admiriation is not so intense anymore. The man still loves the woman, though, but notices that she has changed and doesn't show him so much interest as she used to. At the same time he believes she still loves him and he's only asking her for a green light so that he can be sure of her feelings to him. Once she 'says something' or gives him any sign, their love may bloom again. What an interpretation! I didn't know i was that romantic... Hehe...

    I love this song and its melody. Lots of images and metaphors in it. Nature, colours and sounds. The air is calm, almost silent like her lover. He's waiting for her to say something but she doesn't say a word. You can fill silence with thoughts, memories but it turns to be heavy. Waiting it's heavy.

    I believe the song is about how a woman will tell you when your doing things wrong, but once the love dies... They just let you fall on ypour own.
