SILENT WAYS
Michelle Shocked


"Michelle, do you love me?"

I didn't know what to say

so I just laid down beside you and

I loved you in a silent way

For all your cheating days

I just laid down beside you and

Forgave you in a silent way


Silence is golden

Words are made of lead

And in the alchemy of love

Some things are better left unsaid


And when you told me you were leaving

I did not ask you to stay

But my eyes told no lies and

My tears fell in a silent way


Silence is golden

Words are made of lead

And in the alchemy of love

Some things are better left unsaid
