In The Silence
Words and music by Glyn Lehmann

Verse 1
In the silence we wait for the dawn's pale light
For the bugle to sound and then we must fight
In the silence we count our losses once more
Those young lives - silenced by the war

In the silence
In the silence

Verse 2
In the silence we wait for the dawn's pale light
For the bugle to sound and break through this night
In the silence we count our blessings once more
Our young lives - safe and sound

In the silence
In the silence

In the silence we hold our memories
Back to our old lives, but how can it be?
In the silence the sights and sounds never fade
We carry them with us through all of our days
