Lyrics: For Nobody To Hear

Back

Although the flames they are so dim,
I can see them from over here.
But this is no time to worry now,
No time to shed a tear.

The people are all smiling,
And the letters they are all too,
The flowers they are all arranged
And the notes they are all blue.

Where are the words to say to you,
Where do they all begin.
I should not have a lot to lose
And everything to win.

And I want you to be smiling,
I want you not to cry.
And even if I hide away,
You’ll get the notion why.

A symphony I learnt at school,
In pigeonholes so clear,
It made me for to write no songs
For nobody to hear.

And I see you are all smiling
Even in the candle light.
Just close your eyes and fall asleep,
And I think you’ll be alright.

Close your eyes and fall asleep,
And I think you’ll be alright.

Sandy Denny
