Lyrics
The timbers creak--the whistle whines As reason abandons my mind I think this time I've gone too far The price I'll pay will be your heart There's no use pretending The words I'm defending Aren't condescending Don't think I don't know Like a creek overflowing Your crying eyes are swollen If silence is golden I've struck the motherlode I've been so lucky in love Guess I was blessed from above But you're the best bad luck I've ever had I've never gone so far so fast There's no use pretending The words I'm defending Aren't condescending Don't think I don't know Like a creek overflowing Your crying eyes are swollen If silence is golden I've struck the motherlode I'll be the wealthiest man in the world Lonely as Midas I'll have the finest Pillows to cry on As your quicksilver tears fill the sky I think of all the hearts I can buy I don't mean to profit from pain But I'd hate to think we've loved in vain There's no use pretending The words I'm defending Aren't condescending Don't think I don't know Like a creek overflowing Your crying eyes are swollen If silence is golden I've struck the motherlode
