I just called to hear your voice
But you barely said hello
By the words that you’re not saying
I can tell you’re not alone
Silently you’re telling me
That suddenly we’re through
Darling, I’m still waiting
To hear it isn’t true

Your silence says it all
And it’s all so loud and clear
I fear my heart is paying for this call
I can’t believe what I just heard
You didn’t even say a word
Your silence says it all

Was this really so one-sided
That I was truly blind
If I ever touched your heart
Was it only in my mind
Because I thought we were meant to be
And your love for me was real
But now without a word I know
Exactly how you feel
