Speechless Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Here comes a wave meant to wash me away
A tide that is taking me under
Swallowing sand, left with nothing to say
My voice drowned out in the thunder

[Pre-Chorus]

But I won’t cry
And I won’t start to crumble
Whenever they try
To shut me or cut me down

[Chorus]

I won’t be silenced
You can’t keep me quiet
Won’t tremble when you try it
All I know is I won’t go speechless
‘Cause I’ll breathe
When they try to suffocate me
Don’t you underestimate me
‘Cause I know that I won’t go speechless

[Verse 2]

Written in stone
Every rule, every word
Centuries old and unbending
“Stay in your place”
“Better seen and not heard”
But now that story is ending

[Pre-Chorus]

‘Cause I
I cannot start to crumble
So come on and try
Try to shut me and cut me down

[Chorus]

I won’t be silenced
You can’t keep me quiet
Won’t tremble when you try it
All I know is I won’t go speechless, speechless
Let the storm in
I cannot be broken
No, I won’t live unspoken
‘Cause I know that I won’t go speechless

[Bridge]

Try to lock me in this cage
I won’t just lay me down and die
I will take these broken wings
And watch me burn across the sky
Hear the echo saying:

[Chorus]

I won’t be silenced
Though you wanna see me tremble when you try it
All I know is I won’t go speechless, speechless
‘Cause I’ll breathe
When they try to suffocate me
Don’t you underestimate me
‘Cause I know that I won’t go speechless

[Outro]

All I know is I won’t go speechless, speechless
