When You Say Nothing At All

Song: When You Say Nothing At All
By: Alison Krauss

I fall down next to you, still trying to catch my breath.  Suddenly, I can’t believe how lucky I am to have someone like you in my life.  Sure, you may not do the things a normal boyfriend would do.  You don’t tell me you want me by your side for the rest of your life.  You don’t tell me that you’ll always be there for me.  You don’t tell me that you love me.  But you don’t need to.


It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word you can light up the dark
Try as I may I could never explain
What I hear when you don't say a thing

You’re laying next to me, smiling so much that I think your face just might burst, and I know it’s not fake or forced.  You’re looking into my eyes while you gently rub your hand along my back.  And that’s all I need.  I’ve had boyfriends before, hell I’ve had husbands before, who tell me they love me, but that is a pretty trite comment nowadays.  You don’t bother with things like that, and you don’t need to.


The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes sayin' you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

All day, people tell me how much they love me and how much I mean to them.  I’m a role model to them, or they think I’m so sweet.  They don’t know me, though.  And you do.  And you know that I really don’t need to hear those things.  I really don’t even want to hear those things.  You’re heart tells me so much more than words ever could.


All day long I can hear people talking out loud
But when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd
Old Mr. Webster could never define
What's being said between your heart and mine

You’re still wearing that ridiculously huge smile, but it’s somehow cute.  In a way, it tells me I’m everything to you, and you need me.  That’s why I love that smile so much.  On anyone else, it would look comletely stupid, but on you, it works.  And your eyes are still looking into mine.  You have that look in your eyes that I absolutely love.  That look that tells me you will be by my side for the rest of my life.  Because you love me.  And I know that.  And your hand is still on my back, rubbing small, soothing circles.  And that tells me that you will always be there for me.  If I ever fall, you’ll catch me.  Because you love me.


The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes sayin' you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

You tell me more than any of my previous boyfriends have, and it means so much more.  Because you don’t have to do what all of them did.  And you know that.  You say it best when you say nothing at all.


The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes sayin' you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all
