Nancy McCallion: Lyrics

Say Nothin

Say Nothing
lyric McCalliion, music  McCallion/Schramm

Half sincere and half undressed
And I’m not thinking of anything else
It’s my moment it’s mine
Words start tumbling north and south
There’s better things you do with your mouth

When you say nothing

Say nothing
Say nothing to me
I’ve heard the line
I’ve got no sympathy
Say nothing

I don’t need to be seduced
Don’t need no lies don’t need no truths
I’m already set for the scene
I keep my dreams spare and light
Like the last goodbye on the very first night
When you say nothing

Don’t talk of  hearts and souls and dreams
Just keep your tail up off the seams
And we’ll say nothing
The heart ain’t nothing but a fibrous lump
And I just wanna feel it pump
When you say nothing
