Silence Speaks 1,000 words

This song by Debbie Gibson just popped in my head the other day and hasn't left sense. Talk about a blast from the past.

When I asked you,
you said nothing was wrong,
but I listened to,
your magical song

and it's notes were gone,
you sung it I heard,
silence speaks 1,000 words.

you keep telling me
I'll pay the price
For asking you once
and telling you twice

but I paid that day,
your emotions turned cold,
silence speaks 1,000 words

Where do I turn when you turn away?
It's never just the things you say.
You never ever put me down,
but when I speak you turn around.
I'm not saying much, I'm saying a lot.

If you spoke true, there'd be no doubt,
but the only words, are "we'll work it out."
That's not saying much, you just won't take the time,
and that's where I draw the line.

Where do I turn when you turn away?
it's never just the things you say
you never ever put me down,
but when I speak you turn around.
I'm not saying much I'm saying a lot.

We're sending signals first of hope and insecurity.
Signals of doubt to everywhere and so consciously.
You know you want to break the ties,
but you use silence, you use lies.
Don't worry, I'll return your song of silence.
