LYRICS: “White Space” by G.T. Thomas

Did you notice that silence was alright?
And we were getting used to sitting tight?
Comfortable enough without a word to say
And we could spend the whole entire day

Finding the ways to make the
Quiet, white space feel full.

It never seemed so hard as it does now.

When you’re alone, how do you spend these hours?
Passing time by stopping to smell flowers?
Myself? I’ve given up on television,
Which leaves my brain more time for indecision.

And finding the ways to make the
Quiet, white space feel full?
It never seemed so hard as it does now.

We aren’t just marking time
We’re really feeling fine
We don’t push ever on
Until our meeting’s done.
We aren’t just killing minutes
Waiting till their finished
Waiting for the next thing
To get to something happening.

In fact, sometimes I think we’d rather that it never come at all.

And sometimes simply being together
Is the closest I could ever
Feel
To being real.

When you’re alone how do you spend these hours?
We time-traveled to youth with special powers.

And we found the ways to make the
Quiet, white space feel full.
