She Sings Songs Without Words
Harry Chapin


I was thrown on the cobblestones, tossed at her feet.
My fool's mouth was filled with the dust from the street.
An out of work court jester, with nowhere to go.
And no need to speak, for she seemed to know...

She sings songs without words,
Songs that sailors and blind men and beggars have heard.
She knows more oflove than the poets can say,
And her eyes offer something won't go away.

This mad mocking town and its dishonored guest
Disappeared in the colors that danced on her dress.
She led me to safety in a forest of green,
And showed my stale eyes some sights never seen.

She sings songs without words,
Songs that sailors and blind men and beggars have heard.
She knows more oflove than the poets can say,
And her eyes offer something won't go away.

She spins magic and moonlight in her meadows and streams,
And seeks deep inside me and touches my dreams.
The morning comes smiling and I laugh with no sound,
And snuggle in silence in the sweet peace I've found.

She sings songs without words,
Songs that sailors and blind men and beggars have heard.
She knows more oflove than the poets can say,
And her eyes offer something won't go away.

No they won't go away...
