The Pictures Versus The Vandas

Silence
Composed by Chris Altmann © Mushroom Music Publishing

Nobody argues when she’s breathin’ fire
Someone who gets what she wants
Nobody argues when they call you a liar
They’ve been sayin’ that for months

She’s a girl on a hot tin roof
She’s a hell cat hound
Ah, but silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires from you, from you

Where is she goin’ and what has she done?
Why’s her face all in knots?
Wearin’ the glasses to see through the night
She walks at night a lot

She’s a girl on a hot tin roof
She’s a hell cat hound
Ah, but silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires from you, from you

It’s not a problem ’cause she’s got it already beat
She clutches her purse as she crosses the side of the street
She could try to show you but she don’t even know you that well
After 24 years you’d think you’d be able to tell

She doesn’t care about the things in your wallet
Or the things that you’ve done
She’s got to get to that business appointment
It’s really not much fun

She’s a girl on a hot tin roof
She’s a hell cat hound
Ah, but silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires from you
Ah, silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires from you, from you

Headley Grange
Composed by Davey Lane © The Pictures.

Take all the night and make it brand new
To jump from the ship that once was so true
I can’t understand the commotion I heard
As I tried to make sense of some disjointed words
 
And all my life the winnings you took were the ones that I knew
And now I’m fine I’m happiest waiting for someone like you
It’s true
 
Headley Grange, it must’ve been strange
A ghost down the hallway, a marriage estranged
The day was so awkward, the night was as well
As someone played “Man” from Fever To Tell
 
And all my life the winnings you took were the ones that I knew
And now I’m fine I’m happiest waiting for someone like you
It’s true
 
And all my life the winnings you took were the ones that I knew
And now I’m fine I’m happiest waiting for someone like you
It’s true
