Hoot Music, 1999

words and music by Katherine Wheatley

I don't say what I'm thinking
When I don't have the confidence
I have got to be drinking
To say the things that I mean the most

That's why I prefer singing
That's why I play this guitar
That's why I spend my Sunday afternoons
Finding words to tell you what I need from you

Gently touch me
Slowly move me
Whisper to me darling
I love you

Maybe we're lazy
Maybe we're shy
Maybe we fear each other
So we let the time go slipping by

You prefer the unspoken
Sure that tells me that you care
But times when I am most uncertain
That's when I need to hear
