Silence Is King

Silence Is King

Tanya Tucker

She tests every word like a fine wine
She holds every thought like her last dime
You can hear a pin drop from miles away
You can hear a heart stop as plain as day
We live in a land where silence is king
Whispers have all disappeared
Cry for an echo, you won't hear a thing
Silence is king around here
Silence is king around here

Where are the dreams we were after
Where is the joy and the laughter
Were they only habits we were doomed to lose
Or is destiny not ours to choose

We live in a land where silence is king
Whispers have all disappeared
Cry for an echo, you won't hear a thing
Silence is king around here
Silence is king around here
Desperate measures come from desperate times
I don't regret what I have done
If my actions made you speak your mind
Angry words are better than none

We live in a land where silence is king
Whispers have all disappeared
Cry for an echo, you won't hear a thing
Silence is king around here
Silence is king around here

Silence is king around here
