That’s when it hit me
We have deprived ourselves of it for so long
How can we learn again?
I don’t think we realised until now
I just want to be heard, talk to me, hold me
I don’t know where to start
This will take some time
I want to go back to a time before
Maybe if I close my eyes and dream
Will it ever be the same again?
We were so blissfully unaware
Another silent weekend
Now we see what was missing
We will have to learn again
