Blackfield - My Gift Of Silence Lyrics




If I compiled all my crimes and my lies into amnesty
Would you come back to me?
The smile on my lips is a sign that I don't hear you leaving me
And I don't hear my own soul scream

I'll read your lips, watch your scarf play at your hips and I know it's true
But I don't hear him call to you

Don't blame yourself
Don't change yourself
I just want to be over you, see, if you'll love
Don't hate yourself

If I compiled all my crimes and my lies into amnesty
Would you come back to me?
The smile on my lips is a sign that I don't hear you leaving me
And I don't hear my own soul scream

Don't blame yourself
(Don't blame yourself)
Don't change yourself
(Don't change yourself)
I just want to be over you, see, if you'll love
(Don't hate yourself)
Don't hate yourself

Blackfield My Gift Of Silence Comments
  1. arya sen

    One of the perfect songs of all time

  2. FuriousJesse

    This reminds me of loving someone who's already taken.
    "But I don't hear him call to you"
    "Don't blame yourself"
    "Don't hate yourself"

  3. Shoegazin'

    This song is awesome! But makes me cry my heart out. :/
    My anxiety screams out loud...

  4. Cosette S.

    Breathtaking

  5. Manan Chopra

    He did this 12 years ago. What a fucking crazy genius.
    Wilson, thank you for keeping us alive.

  6. jamie wesson

    imo wilson is the best weve got this is not meant as a insult its my honest opinion if i was younger i would be saying hes a prog god but its not new to me ive heard it all before but i do enjoy his music

  7. mahdi ben hamed

    Yuuuuppp

  8. Narayanan Vishu

    bare footed drug free genius

    Ryan Bronson

    Narayanan Vishu I mean there’s a lot of geniuses that do drugs too, but you’re right it’s not a prerequisite

  9. EXODUS

    C'est très beau, comme les autres morceaux de l'album, les mélodies sont magnifiques
    steven Wilson avec blackfield, permet à des oreilles un peu moins rock progressif de se laisser emmener
    C'est chouette.

  10. wilmsey wilms

    oh what a gorgeous yet sad song. Absolutely beautiful.

  11. unknown user

    There are incredible, idk maybe 'emotional' memories in my head by hearing this song.
    I've heard the whole album thousands of times but this song really is a masterpiece of sadness in my opinion. i think no one hears that song in the same way i do. same feelings for the song 'Some Day', 'Cloudy Now' and much more i guess ...
    or can anyone relate?

  12. Samantha Solfisburg

    I listened to this for, like, an hour last night and was bawling on the floor. I'm twenty-two. Wilson, I love you!!

  13. Shreyaa Aravindan

    what have we done to deserve Steven Wilson? What an unreal creative genius.

    ROY

    You mean, "blackfield" .
    Steve isn't the only genius behind this.

    W A

    This whole album was a masterpiece. Steve Wilson is merely a playback singer on this album. The real genius behind this music is Aviv Geffen, the Israeli guy in the troop. Get your facts straight!

    MisterRand

    @W A Wilson wrote this song

    Réd Rôsé

    @ROY Wilson wrote My gift of silence, but I'm aware that lots of Blackfield music only earns credit to Wilson, which of course shouldn't be.

  14. David Wright

    I'm 64 and it is a beautiful piece...another Wilson masterpiece

  15. Mohammad Maki

    If I compiled all my crimes and my lies into amnesty
    Would you come back to me?
    The smile on my lips is a sign that I don't hear you leaving me
    And I don't hear my own soul scream
    I'll read your lips, watch your scarf play at your hips
    And I know it's true
    But I don't hear him call to you
    Don't blame yourself
    Don't change yourself
    I just wanna be over you, see, if you'll love
    Don't hate yourself
    If I compiled all my crimes and my lies into amnesty
    Would you come back to me?
    The smile on my lips is a sign that I don't hear you leaving me
    And I don't hear my own soul scream
    Don't blame yourself
    (don't blame yourself)
    Don't change yourself
    (don't change yourself)
    I just wanna be over you, see, if you'll love
    (don't hate yourself)
    Don't hate yourself

  16. Tom Kiss

    My mom told me, this song had heard on stereo when i was made (exactly beetween the foreplay and the puncturing the condom my father wear)...
    :-)
    Anyway: its a good song :-)

  17. Wrath Oftitans

    The untold truth

    Yes you compel me to free your Soul
    Saying you good bye through phone was the pain
    You said everything gonna be fine
    But it's been already a decade
    And still your loves and memories drives me crazy , yea crazy
    And tears rolls down every month and years.
    God bless you. ❤

    Sonia Paul

    love is not that easy to forget, right? hope you are doing okay.

    If I compiled
    All my crimes and my lies,
    Into amnesty,
    Would you come back to me,

    The smile on my lips
    Is a sign that I don't hear you leaving me,
    And I don't hear my own soul scream,

    I'll read your lips,
    Watch your scarf play at your hips,
    And I know it's true,
    But I don't hear him call to you,

    Don't blame yourself,
    Don't change yourself,
    I Just want to be,
    Over you say you feel love,
    Don't hate yourself,

    If I compiled
    All my crimes and my lies into amnesty,
    Would you come back to me,

    The smile on my lips
    Is a sign that I don't hear you leaving me,
    And I don't hear my own soul scream,

    Don't blame yourself,
    Don't change yourself,
    I Just want to be,
    Over you say you feel love,
    Don't hate yourself.

  60. Proserpina

    i do blame myself
    just in case you wonder

    ardlukelviejo

    +Proserpina Perfect! I'm not the only one...

    Proserpina

    @ardlukelviejo Well, it's not perfect at all.

    ardlukelviejo

    Sorry, I have to work on my written sarcasm. I do know it's not perfect at all, but I feel fortunate of discovering Steven Wilson and his amazing songs.

    Proserpina

    +ardlukelviejo I do understand.

    Mad Z

    Well don’t, stop blaming yourself. Nothing worth it.

  61. Manuel

    One of most painfull, sad, heart breaking but still beautiful Steven Wilson songs. I love this man.

    Michael Heinze

    Let's also give some credits to Aviv Geffen here, who writes most of the Blackfield songs

    Up Yourz

    haken, i see youre a man of music :D

    Martin Powell

    Manuel Much agreed

    António Gonzalez

    @Michael Heinze Steven was actually the one who wrote this particualr song! But yeah Aviv doesn't get nearly enough credit, I'd say 85% of Blackfield is written by Aviv!

  62. Blair Holmgren

    I see 14 people watched this on opposite day.

    Macker Maldrill

    +Blair Holmgren Must be sadists.

  64. Proserpina

    Buralarda birilerinin dolaştığını ve yorumlarda kendilerine benzeyen birilerini aradığını hissediyorum. Acı çeken ruhların sıkıştığı bedenlerle aynı kalabalıkta kaybolduğumu hissediyorum. Ve sen, evet evet sen; çırpınarak yardım dilenirken aydınlıktan bir elin sana uzatılmadığını hissediyorum. Buradayım. Buradayım işte!"Don't blame yourself, don't change yourself." Hepsi bundan ibaret.

    Çağlar Polat

    "Don't hate yourself" kendimizden nefret etmeye zorlandığımız zamanlara ithafen

    I'm 25 and I think Steven Wilson is a brilliant musician.  I also like pointing out my age to strangers on the internet for some inane reason.

    jackie97

    I was 20 when I heard Blackfield, Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson the first time, I thought I've discovered a genius. Now I'm 35 and I still think Steven Wilson is a genius.

  93. HanzoLibre

    This is probably one of the best pop songs written in the last 15-20 years! It's nice to know that there's still some "real" pop being made, instead of the brain dead crap that's played in the radio now-a-days! Thanks for the tunes Steven and Aviv....

    JOHN BORTOLIN

    HanzoLibre My opinion this is not pop music I call it great music.

    JOHN BORTOLIN

    HanzoLibre I would not call this pop music I never hear these great songs on the radio.
