Love Will Not Whisper
by: W. Dire Wolff - copyright 1998

I don’t know if I should love you
I only know I do
And I don’t know if you love him
Or how much he needs you
And is he there for you?
Does he make you happy?
Is there still a place for me?
Then she wakes by me
It’s another morning
She heads home down the street
Now I’m all alone
I long for you beside me
I lay back down to sleep
I dream of you
Sleeping beside me
But it’s only in my dream
I don’t know
If you want to love me
Or if that’s just the way it seems.

Love will not whisper
It speaks without shame
Love will not whisper
It’s not a creature you can tame
Echo like the canyon
Crying in the wind
Hungers in the nighttime
And I wait for you again.

I don’t know if you want to love me
I only know
You’re not here
Sleeping beside me
That’s why she is here
She dreams by me
She is breathing lightly
She’s young and soft and near.
I wake from her
I go downstairs
Watch the stars from the door
I wait for you
I wait for morning
I head upstairs again.
And she’s there for me
Beautiful in her dreaming
But I wonder where you are
Is he there with you?
Does he say, “I love you”?
Does he hold you in his arms?

Love will not whisper
It speaks without shame
Love will not whisper
It’s not a creature you can tame
Echo like the canyon
Crying in the wind
Hungers in the nighttime
And I wait for you again.
