Code of Silence - Billy Joel feat. Cyndi Lauper

Everybody's got a million questions;
Everybody wants to know the score.
What you went through, it's something you should be over now.
Everybody wants to hear the secrets
That you never told a soul before;
And it's not that strange, because it wouldn't change what happens anyhow.

But you swore to yourself a long time ago
There were some things that people never needed to know;
This is one that you keep, that you bury so deep
No one can tear it out.

And you can't talk about it
'Cause you're following a code of silence.
You're never gonna lose the anger,
You just deal with it in a different way.
And you can't talk about it;
And isn't that a kind of madness
To be living by a code of silence
When you've really got a lot to say.

You don't want to lose a friendship;
There's nothing that you have to hide,
And a little dirt couldn't hurt no one anyway.
And you still have a rage inside you
That you carry with a certain pride
In the only part of a broken heart that you could ever save.

But you've been through it once, you know how it ends;
You don't see the point of going through it again.
And this ain't the place, and this ain't the time,
And neither's any other day.

So you can't talk about it
'Cause you're following a code of silence.
You're never gonna lose the anger,
You just deal with it in a different way.
And you can't talk about it;
And isn't that a kind of madness
To be living by a code of silence
When you've really got a lot to say.

After the moment passes
And the impulse disappears,
You can still hold back because you don't crack very easily.
It's a time-honored resolution
Because the danger is always near;
It's with you now, but that ain't how it was supposed to be.

And it's hard to believe after all these years
That it still gives you pain and it still brings tears,
And you feel like a fool, because in spite of your rules,
You've got a memory.

But you can't talk about it
'Cause you're following a code of silence.
You're never gonna lose the anger,
You just deal with it in a different way.
And you can't talk about it;
And isn't that a kind of madness
To be living by a code of silence
When you've really got a lot to say.
