The lights were always bright on those nights
Standing silent infront of an amp
Anticipating a sudden rush of energy to take over the room
Leading to an onslaught of noise to come forth
It was one loud crash away
From the greatest nights

But then your hands never met
The time was right but not for you
You kept them trapped
Folded against your chest
Standing ever still in the middle of the commotion
Making your presense known
No one ever came close
Your mouth never moved
Leaving everyone stranded
It was all we needed
Your affirmation
And you left us hanging on to the edge
