“No More Words”

So many songs have been written in the context of a missing loved one and, given that most of us can relate to the resulting emotional turmoil, it is not surprising that every now and then a song like that “hits home” for whatever reason.

“No More Words” was quite a popular play on the radio here when it came out in 1989 and, in contrast to my two my earlier song Posts, it dealt with a desire to end a relationship. Regardless, it is one of those songs that just made an immediate impact on me, and I still play it regularly! Enjoy!

You gave me your word
But now that your word
Doesn’t mean that much to me
And in the silence I can hear
The truth rings loud and clear
I never meant that much to you
and it seems, a whisper to a scream
was all that we knew
before the talk is through I’m telling you
***
No more words tonight. No more words
I don’t ever wanna hear you say
you love me one more time.
No more words tonight. No more words
I’ll forever keep the silence
and you can keep your lies
***
You tried to throw me one last line
to throw me one last time
But now I guess I’m wise to you
And vows spoken in the night
are broken in the light
would you recite I have heard before
so say no more…

CHORUS – No more words tonight…

Dialogue is over
I see your lips move
but they don’t make a sound
You’ve lost what I have found
A voice inside of me that sets me free

  1. This is my favorite song on the “All or Nothing” album. I think this was her last release for 10 or more years. Luba wasn’t as big here in the states as in her homeland of Canada. I’m not sure why, I think her voice is beautiful. I am going to pull this album out and listen to songs that have been silent for too many years. Thank-you for sharing, your music choices are so enjoyable.
