Is the silence talking?

Is the silence talking?
Only me and my shadow walking
I have turned twenty today
Still no sign of love on my way

Some of my friends are married
Some of them are engaged
Some of them have kids too
Who is that lucky guy who will love me?

I don't know until when
This will go on
Why am I the only one left?
Maybe the right time is not yet

The day I will fall in love
Maybe that day won't have a name
But still the birds and the trees will know
The wind will also blow
All the clocks will stop
All the stars will clap
Because the silence will be walking
And I'm the one who will be talking
