Lyrics

Never Said a Word
Words and Music by Lachlan Bryan

She said I agree that all is fair in war
But love is an entirely different game
Warriors sleep peacefully the night before
What lovers do you know can do the same?

And the road to hell she said could well be paved in gold
And your good intentions haven’t got a prayer
You need somebody’s body when the night gets cold
Which somebody is neither here nor there
Which somebody is neither here nor there

She said a lot of things that made a lot of sense
And she made the hair stand rigid on my neck
Said she had no interest in remaining friends
She was nothing if not forthright and direct

She’d tied me to the heater just the night before
She’d carved in her initials to my arm
She left me for an hour or two and locked the door
She promised I’d not come to any harm
She promised I’d not come to any harm

But here I am
I feel as though I know her like my own two hands
Like the weight upon my shoulder when I
Try to stand but I fall
When I realise
I really don’t know anyone at all

She made me recite poetry by Lautremaunt
She told me things no one had ever heard
She said I could go home at any time that I should want
I wanted to but never said a word
I wanted to but never said a word

Now mothers tell your children not to tell a lie
Unless you think somebody could get hurt
And reach out to somebody if you want to die

I wanted to but never said a word
