Billy Joel

Code of Silence

 

 

 

Everybody's got a million questions

Everybody wants to know the score

What you went through

It's something you

Should be over now

 

Everybody wants to hear the secrets

That you never told a soul before

And it's not that strange

Because it wouldn't change

what happened anyhow

 

But you swore to yourself a long time ago

There were some things that people never needed to know

Guess there's one that you keep

That you bury so deep

No one can tear it out

 

And you can't talk about it

Because you're following a code of silence

You're never gonna to lose the anger

You just deal with it a different way

 

And you can't talk about it

And isn't that a kind of madness

To be living by a code of silence

When you've really got a lot to say

 

You don't want to lose a friendship

There's nothing that you have to hide

And a little dirt

Couldn't hurt no one anyway

 

And you still have a rage inside you

That you carry with a certain pride

In the only part of the broken heart

That you could ever save

 

But you've been through it once

You know how it ends

You don't see the point

Of going through it again

And this ain't the place

And this ain't the time

And neither's any other day

 

So you can't talk about it

Because you're following a code of silence

You're never gonna to lose the anger

You just deal with it a different way

 

So you can't talk about it

And isn't that a kind of madness

To be living by a code of silence

When you've really got a lot to say

 

I know you well enough to tell you've got your reasons

That's not the kind of code you're inclined to break

Some things unknown are best left alone forever

And if a vow is what it takes

Haven't you paid for your mistakes

 

After the moment passes

And the impulse disappears

You can still hold back

Because you don't crack very easily

 

It's a time honored resolution

Because the danger is always near

It's with you now

But that ain't how it was supposed to be

 

And it's hard to believe after all these years

That it still gives you pain and it still brings tears

And you feel like a fool

Because it's part of your rules

You've got a memory

 

But you can't talk about it

Because you're following a code of silence

You're never gonna to lose the anger

You just deal with it a different way

 

But you can't talk about it

And isn't that a kind of madness

To be living by a code of silence

When you've really got a lot to say
