You didn’t have to send it in a letter,

Or even need to call me on the phone.

You didn’t go and shout it from a mountain,

Or take the time to chisel it in stone.

Indifference speaks louder than words.


A kettle whistles, no one’s pouring.

The TV’s on while someone’s snoring.

A match is struck, but nothing’s burning.

A message sent, but none returning.

Indifference speaks louder than words.
