Biography

Silent Cheers started as a band of five fellow students in December 2011.Charlotte the lead vocalist, Charles and Alexandre at the guitars, Quentin playing the bass and Clotilde drumming along. Making their own tracks was important to them so they started playing gigs in their home town, and in November 2012, they recorded their first ep "Widespread Tensions", which was released on 10th February 2012, physically, on Itunes, Spotify and Bandcamp.
They continued until Charlotte left the group in November 2013. They have overcome this and are still ready to have fun making music together !

Lyrics

Child

Written By: Silent Cheers,Charlote Vanvuchelen

Look at me now
I lose my mind
Next to your pride
I can only deride
Next to a vain
I lose my brain
It must come to an end

When you look down on me
I'll throw my modesty
When you'll speak over me
It's all you'll see

I can't count
All the time
That I wanted
That I'd like
To riposte 2x
Like a child

I don't know how but I could make close your mouth
I'm having a reaction, you're not ready to pardon
Gna gna …

Look at me now
How hard I try
To start the fight
Before you realize
How hard I hope
To cut the rope
Not to follow your road
Don't tell me you're the best
You'll put me to the test
My heart hit in my chest

I can't say
All you did
That I cry
That I swear
To whine, to grumble
Like a child

I don't know how but I could make close your mouth
I'm having a reaction, you're not ready to pardon
Gna gna …

I can't stop
I can't shout
That I hope
That I pray
To sulk
And to cry
I'm a Child

You pretend it's my fault again
I didn't catch the right train
You pretend you're the voice of reason
I didn't choose your direction
All the time I hope that
You agree with who I am
All the time I walk alone
But you don't cheer me anymore
You pick holes in my life
You pick holes in my life

You played with my thoughts
As you're playing cards
I won't let you trample on me now
x2

You think you wipe the floor with me
But my will power raise me up
You think I'm just a teenager
But my mind grow faster
See you later
See you later

You played with my thoughts
As you're playing cards
I won't let you trample on me now

I won't let you trample on me now 3x

Tell me what you see
And I’ll tell you what to say
Although you know you can’t trust me,
Have you got another choice to make?

I used to be a good person,
Someone you could have rely on
They’ll tell you what I do is wrong
Can you prove me they are wrong?

I’ve been trying to follow the rules for such a long time
But life showed me that you have to be clever rather than nice to survive
It’s nice to survive

If you’re looking for company
You’d better prepare your money
If you want something to eat,
You’d better break your neighbour’s feet.

Forget about your feelings
There is no place for such things
You’re in the real world, son!
So get rid of your expectations

I’ve been trying to follow the rules for such a long time
But life showed me that you have to be clever rather than nice to survive
It’s nice to survive

What ? What do you say ?
Why don’t you want to live that way ?
You’re so naïve
Shut up and roll up your sleeves

I’ve been trying to follow the rules for such a long time
But life showed me that you have to be clever rather than nice to survive
It’s nice to survive
But you don’t seem to agree with these facts
You call them “lies”
If you want to success by yourself
Good luck and try to survive
Try to survive…
