It's not for the words
That I'm writing this song
It's not the tune that I'll sing
It's not for the sound that
It makes in the air
It's just for the silence it brings

Once you were golden
With light in your hair
A knotted scarf tied 'round your hips
A necklace of ivory
Hung 'round your neck
Whispered love on your lips

And the sky, the sky
Was our only gate
The ground was only our grave
We hung in the air
For a minute too long
Our love was too late to save

I looked for you down
In the damp dirty street
I searched for you all through the world
But all that I found
Was the echo of hearts
A love that had come to no good

It's not for the words
That I'm writing this song
It's not for the tune that I'll sing
It's not for the sound
That it makes in the air
It's just for the silence it brings
