We were performing Silence Live at one of the CD release concerts.

"Silence is heavy, an absence of air. A holding of breath til somebody shares. No words are spoken; no words to hear. Friendship dies slowly in the absence of air."

It is arranged so the the words are spaced by Tom's lovely contemplative guitar accompaniment. At the end of the last note, the audience was ... silent.

As an artist, I was initially taken aback, unaccustomed to no reaction at the end of a song. And then I realized that the long pause of quiet was the audience holding their breath collectively. I take that a true tribute to the song Silence.
