Mads Langer – When Silence Falls – Chords

The song When Silence Falls by Mads Langer from the album In these waters is a very beautiful song.

It both has elements from gospel and country and has this haunting quality. While the lyrics aren’t that complex, I am sure it strikes a chord with many people, missing someone that they used to be with in a moment of quiet contemplation.

Anyway, without any further ado, is the chords, as my ears told me they were:

Intro
  A       B       Cm             
| . . . | . . . | . . . | . . . |
  A       B       E
| . . . | . . . | . . . | . . . |

     A             B                    E
As I loosen up the blindfold I begin to see
   A                  B                E
My scars have yet not healed, but I am free
B           Cm           A             E
No one ever told that a storm would be coming
A                 B              E
I was in the water and the river overflowed

             A                          E        Esus4  E
When silence falls, that is when I feel lonely
             A                   E              Esus4    E
When silence falls, it falls too heavily on my shoulders
           B                   Cm   A
And then I feel the absence of you
    E                      B       E
And all the things that we used to do

  A       B       Cm             
| . . . | . . . | . . . | . . . |
  A       B       E
| . . . | . . . | . . . | . . . |

    A            B       E
The colors of my wildest fantasy
    A                   B                      E
Are still the same, but something's changed in me
B                    Cm              A      E                
I guess that it's no wonder that I'm all confused
A                   B       E
When I've lost the sense of you

              A                         E        Esus4  E
When silence falls, that is when I feel lonely
             A                          E             Esus4    E
When silence falls, it falls, falls too heavily on my shoulders
           B                   Cm   A
And then I feel the absence of you
    E                      B       E
And all the things that we used to do

Piano part
  A       B       Cm             
| . . . | . . . | . . . | . . . |
  A       B       E
| . . . | . . . | . . . | . . . |

     A                B                E
The turnkey comes, it tells me time is up
    A         B               E
I'm in again, now the door is locked
B               Cm             A        E
How I wish that I could sing a song for you
    A             B                E
But you have disappeared without a clue

              A                         E        Esus4  E
When silence falls, that is when I feel lonely
             A                       E             Esus4    E
When silence falls, ohh it falls too heavily on my shoulders
           B                   Cm   A
And then I feel the absence of you
    E                      B       E
And all the things that we used to do

  A             B             Cm                          
| .   .   .   | .   .   .   | .   .   .   | .   .   .   |
  E             B             E       Esus4 E
| .   .   .   | .   .   .   | .   .   .   | .   .   .   |
