SILENT GOODBYE

If there's something you want to say - say it now.
Before you walk away - say it now.
If there's something on your mind,
there won't be a better time.
If there's something you need to say - say it now.

I see something in your eyes. Let it out.
I wonder what that something is about.
There's something in the air,
and in your silent stare, there's a shout.
If there's something in your heart - let it out.

(Chorus)
What I'm saying in my silence,
cannot reach across the distance.
I really don't know how.
So - like you - I stand and stare,
across a room of empty air.
I just can't find a way to say it now.

I watch you as you turn to walk away.
I listen for the words that we can't say.
Then, as you walk slowly out the door,
I stand here with my feet glued to the floor.
Why can't I find the words to say it now ?

Our lives are slowly drifting far apart,
I feel a whisper flutter from my heart,
"It's alright we'll meet again,
someday, somehow.
and maybe we'll say then -
the words we can't say now".


(Chorus)
What I'm saying in my silence,
cannot reach across the distance.
I really don't know how.
So - like you - I stand and stare,
across a room of empty air.
I just can't find a way to say it now.
