Song Description

Poignant downbeat song asking whether it is best to discuss a terminal illness or impending loss openly. From the album 'Pop Philosophy'. Written, performed and produced by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

Is it good to talk?
Is it best to air the thought?
Is it good to talk
Of a fate you can't avoid?
Are we throwing the drama in sharper relief
Or offering ourselves a chance of release?
Is it good to talk?
Is it best to bare the thought?

Well I chose to hold my tongue
And resolved to soldier on
So that boil was never lanced
As the malady advanced

Is it good to talk
When we've come to last resorts?
Is it wise to share
Thoughts that might invite despair?

Well I offered a blind eye
Not acknowledging your plight
Feigning blissful ignorance
As the malady advanced

There wasn't something I said
That put you in a darker mood
There wasn't something I said
To show your fears were understood
There wasn't something I said

It would be good to talk
Now there'll be no chance at all
Of course the end did come
And there's nothing to be done
Did you suffer in silence
And hope for a sound?
Did I lessen its violence
Tip-toeing around?
It would be good to talk
It would be good to know for sure
