“The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground.”
The line from the movies about newspaper headlines was "read it and weep".Can't read these lyrics and not do exactly that.I can read your eyes just like a bookYou tell me different, but I know that lookAnd I don't have to guess what's between the linesSo what in the world am I still doing hereYou push me away when I get too nearSaying love's too simple to analyzeSo why do I feel confusedWhy do I feel so usedLike a worn-out thought you threw awayIt wasn't what you said, it's what you didn't sayWhere are the windows, where are the doors?I haven't the key to your heart anymoreI haven't a clue to what's gone wrong'Cause you look at me sometimes as if I weren't thereYou say you're listening, but you never hearThe strains of silence have grown so strongI never wanted to doubt youBut I'd be better off without youI'm no good at looking the other wayIt wasn't what you said, it's what you didn't saySo look at me one last timeWith eyes that still know how to shineHold me like you won't let goBut you let go anywayNo one belongs where they're not wantedYou're just a ghost, and my heart is hauntedWhen I said goodbye, you didn't even beg me to stayIt wasn't what you said, it's what you didn't sayNo baby, it wasn't what you said, it's what you didn't say
libertyman, this is one of the saddest songs ever written. MCC is a brilliant songwriter. It speaks to everyone who has a heart.
