When You Say Nothing At All...by Keith Whitley

(song lyrics)

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

Chorus:
The smile on your face let's me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you'll catch me whenever I fall
But 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
Old Mr. Webster could never define
What's being said between your heart and mine

(Chorus twice)

******************

Those are beautiful words and it's just too bad that not every couple can feel this way about each other.

I first heard this a few years back when Allison Kraus sang it. It is a beautiful song.

Dennis....Jimmy knew Keith Whitley and he said he loved to sing. I forgot about that version of the song with Allison Krauss, it's very pretty when they sing it together.

It's too bad about how he died. Being famous and their hectic schedules must be so stressful for those in the lime light. We've had so many talented people die young accidentally by the over use of drugs & alcohol.
