Lyrics: “Silent Thunder In My Heart” by Saffire – The Uppity Blues Women

Saffire—The Uppity Blues Women is one of my favorite “feminist” bands. The lead singer and song writer, Gaye Adegbalola is just fantastic, her lyrics ring true, and she can swing from poignant to funny to intensely fierce.  For a blues fan like myself, these women are a treasure.

Gaye’s site has some lyrics, but not all of them, unfortunately.  And it drives me batty when I can’t figure out a phrase in a song.  There’re just not enough lyrics to be found on-line.  I’m so used to everything being at my fingertips, it’s frustrating when I find myself stymied.  So, if I can’t find it, I’m going to post it because I know that there are going to be others out there looking for it.

Silent Thunder in My Heart
Saffire – The Uppity Blues Women

I’m a big girl now
I can’t cry
When you left me
I kept my pain inside

Though I knew we had to part
there’s silent thunder in my heart
I can’t talk it out
can’t say a word
as life moves on
it’s all been heard
and what lingers is so tart
this silent thunder in my heart

I go to my job
smile on my face
concealing my wounds
and my disgrace
though I knew we had to part
there’s silent thunder in my heart

(Piano solo)

I go to my job
smile on my face
concealing my wounds and my disgrace
though I knew we had to part
there’s silent in my heart
in my heart…
in my heart…
in my heart…
