“Often confused with shyness, introversion does not imply
social reticence or discomfort. Rather than being averse
to social engagement, introverts become overwhelmed by too much of it,
which explains why the introvert is ready to leave a party after an hour
and the extravert gains steam as the night goes on.”

- Laurie Helgoe
(b. 10 Dec 1960)

Words I Couldn't Say

Written by Steve Robson (b. Nov 1969), and Tammi Kidd, and Gregory Becker

Recorded by Rascal Flatts, 2007

In a book in a box in the closet
In a line in a song I once heard
In a moment on a front porch late one June
In a breath inside a whisper beneath the moon

There it was at the tip of my fingers
There it was on the tip of my tongue
There you were and I had never been that far
There it was the whole world wrapped inside my arms

And I let it all slip away –

What do I do now that you’re gone
No back up plan, no second chance
And no one else to blame
All I can hear in the silence that remains
Are the words I couldn’t say

There’s a rain that’ll never stop falling
There’s a wall that I’ve tried to take down
What I should’ve said just wouldn’t pass my lips
So I held back and now we’ve come to this

And it’s too late now –


Are the words I couldn’t say
I should have found a way to tell you how I felt
Now the only one I’m tellin’ is myself


What do I do, what do I say
And no else to blame
All I can hear in the silence that remains
Are the words I couldn’t say
