They do not want to hear
they do not wish to be told
when speaking of painful things
Silence is always gold

I stare at the stars and they speak to me
they tell me to listen to what others will not see
they tell me to stare into silent space
to listen to the broken hearts bleeding in this place

They do not want to hear
they do not wish to be told
when speaking of painful things
Silence is always gold

How I wish to speak, to say what is true
but they only ask my why I hurt them as I do
I wish only to tell of the pain they will seen feel
but they only laugh at me and say it isn't real

They do not want to hear
they do not wish to be told
when speaking of painful things
Silence is always gold

Dangerous is ignorance, to listen to the lies
oh why will they not heed to me, I see through the disguise
Why do they accuse me of spite and jealousy
why can't they believe that I see the things I see

They do not want to hear
they do not wish to be told
when speaking of painful things
Silence is always gold

So I shut away my heart, and so I close my eyes
I try not to listen to the sound as another dies
but I cannot close my ears, nor can I close my heart
so I cry those bitter tears on another's part

They do not want to hear
they do not wish to be told
when speaking of painful things
Silence is always gold

I close away my secrets and I keep them all inside
but I have to tell you that I'm not the one to hide
you will not turn around and see what is coming true
nor will you listen to my word, oh the crying you will do

They do not want to hear
they do not wish to be told
when speaking of painful things
Silence is always gold

So now I keep to silent thoughts to silent words and deeds
I keep things locked inside my heart, even when it bleeds
I keep my tongue locked in my head, my secrets in my heart
Your unwillingness to hear my words keeps us all apart

They do not want to hear
they do not wish to be told
when speaking of painful things
Silence is always gold

They will never hear
what they will not be told
I no longer speak of painful things
Silence is always Gold
