Silence is all around. Sometimes it’s present despite being in a crowded room. Sometimes it is one’s only companion. Some are scared of silence. Some relish it. Some cannot function in silence. Some thrive on it. Silence affects us all differently. Sarantos newest song is about being comfortable in the silence despite the storm thundering loudly outside.

The song is also about being comfortable in the silence of your art not being well-received. Regardless of whether it’s a movie, song, book or painting, the artist is in a very real sense naked and exposes all personal vulnerabilities when their art is released into the public light. No artist ever creates something out of nothing without pouring their heart and soul into it, viewing it from every angle, and ultimately thinking it is a masterpiece. Critics and fans might not always agree however but that doesn’t mean everyone is not entitled to their opinion either. There is freedom of expression in the world today and that’s ok. Artists need to overcome their fears and grow comfortable with the silence if and when it comes. At one point, there will surely be silence whether it’s failed art today or a failure to recapture the glories and heights of the past. Maybe there is silence because a lover or a fan does not want you anymore.

Lyrics:

The Silence Doesn’t Bother Me

Verse 1

The crowd howling outside
My doubts spin in my mind
I tried to keep them all inside
But now, they know

They know my deepest fears
My thoughts my pain my tears
And if they scream or if they cheer
They’ll never get to me

Prechorus 1

Now I’m free (free)
I’m standing here
Doesn’t matter what you want
Let the thunder rage on

And now I’m free (free)
I’m standing here
Doesn’t matter what you say
My music’s gonna play

Chorus 1

The silence doesn’t bother me
The silence doesn’t bother me (today)
The silence didn’t bother me (yesterday)
The silence never bothered me (anyway)

Verse 2

There is no right or wrong
The rules for me are gone
Put all my heart into my songs
My true colors show

I don’t care what they say
Won’t let them change my ways
Won’t take it even one more day
You’ll never get to me

Prechorus 2

Now I’m free (free)
I’m standing here
Doesn’t matter what you want
Let the thunder rage on, and on

And now I’m free (free)
I’m standing here
Doesn’t matter what you say
My music’s gonna play

Chorus 2

The silence doesn’t bother me
The silence doesn’t bother me (today)
The silence didn’t bother me (yesterday)
The silence never bothered me (anyway)

Bridge

(Free)
I will rise up, much stronger than ever
I will never stand down, no never, no never

I will rise up, much stronger than ever
I will never stand down, no never, no never

I will rise up, much stronger than ever
I will never stand down, no never, no never

I will rise up, much stronger than ever
I will never stand down, no never, NEVER!

Chorus 3

The silence doesn’t bother me
The silence doesn’t bother me (today)
The silence didn’t bother me (yesterday)
The silence never bothered me (anyway)

The silence doesn’t bother me
The silence doesn’t bother me (today)
The silence didn’t bother me (yesterday)
The silence never bothered me (anyway)
