    15,471 views 6 years ago
    This song is the only one that was recorded by both Asphalt Ribbons and Tindersticks. The Big Silence was released on Asphalt Ribbons "Passion Coolness Indifference" EP from 1991. Two years later, the tempo was slowed down, the accordion was replaced with a piano melody, and it was given the name Raindrops. It can be found on Tindersticks first self-titled album.

    Lyrics:


    Big silence is here again tonight
    Big silence is here again tonight
    Will the love ever come back?
    Will the love ever come back?

    I know I've been pushing you away
    I know it's been going on for days

    Those awkward little things
    So endearing
    Those awkward little things
    Wear on me

    See, what we got here is a tired love
    What we got here is a lazy love
    It mooches around the house
    Can't wait to go out

    What it needs, it just grabs, it never asks
    We sit and watch the divide widen
    We sit and listen to our hearts, we crumble

    With our only chance to jump
    Neither of us had the guts
    Or maybe we're just too proud
    To say it out loud

    Big silence is here again tonight
    Big silence is here again tonight Show less
