When You Say Nothing At All

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 can never explain
What I hear when you don’t say a thing.

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

All day long I can hear people talking out loud
But when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd
Try as they may they could never define
What’s been said between your heart and mine.

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

(You say it best when you say nothing at all)
(You say it best when you say nothing at all.)

The smile on your face
There’s a truth in your eyes
The touch of your hand
Lets me know that you need me

(You say it best when you say nothing at all)
(You say it best when you say nothing at all)
(You say it best when you say nothing at all.)

WHEN YOU SAY NOTHING AT ALL (©1988 RCA Records Nashville) Written by Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz.
