Lyrics

It's hard to believe you're gone
Who am I going to talk to
When things went wrong
You were someone I could turn to
You always knew just what to say
Which sometimes wasn't anything
You never stood in the way
Of letting me fulfill my dreams

I can't talk, but I can sing
I can't walk, but I can dance
I can't see, but I can paint
I can't hear, but I can listen to sweet music
And it's all because of you
And it's all because of you

You held me in your arms
When I needed mending
You shielded me from harm
With a love that was never ending

I can't talk . . .

It's hard to believe you're gone
But you'll always be inside of me
You'll be in my songs
You'll always be there guiding me

I can't talk . . .
It's hard to believe you're gone
Who am I going to talk to
When things went wrong
You were someone I could turn to
You always knew just what to say
Which sometimes wasn't anything
You never stood in the way
Of letting me fulfill my dreams

I can't talk, but I can sing
I can't walk, but I can dance
I can't see, but I can paint
I can't hear, but I can listen to sweet music
And it's all because of you
And it's all because of you

You held me in your arms
When I needed mending
You shielded me from harm
With a love that was never ending

I can't talk . . .

It's hard to believe you're gone
But you'll always be inside of me
You'll be in my songs
You'll always be there guiding me

I can't talk . . .
