Nothing's Said

The opening song on my new album Lifelines is about sliding doors - how a moment's hesitation can change a life, sometimes leaving years of regret for something that might have been... if only.  
Scroll down to listen to the song, or read the lyrics below.

Nothing's Said
I want you to know before you close the door
I wanted to say before you turn away…
but nothing’s said.

You know the words don’t come out easy when you’re
knocking upon my door
the syllables they fade and fall
between the cracks in the floor and the
sentences they stumble and they
slip away unsaid                 
and the silence mocks the muted words
that hide inside my head…
but nothing’s said.

I want you to know before you close the door
I wanted to say before you turn away…
but nothing’s said.

And I know before you go there will be
just one last kiss
then yesterday’s reality will be
just tomorrow’s wish
And I know you can’t judge a leopard by the
spots upon its coat                
but how can you judge the writing on the wall
when it isn’t even wrote.

I want you to know
I really love you so
I wanted to say, yeah, yeah hey hey
don’t ever go away…
but nothing’s said.
