Music sometimes lifts us...


And sometimes body-slams us. While packing this past week, this song came up on my MP3 player and I was singing along...until I got to the chorus...at that point I collapsed against the wall, sobbing uncontrollably...

Unspoken Love by Kim Hill

I wonder how many husbands and wives

Cry themselves to sleep tonight

Wishing for the world that they could just reach out across the bed...

And hold each other the way they used to do

And whisper sleepy “I love yous”

Oh but most just turn out the light and let it go unsaid


How many love songs never get sung

How many sweet thoughts die on the tip of the tongue

Victims of unspoken love

Tell me How many lonely people there are

Left holding the pieces of a broken heart

Tokens of unspoken love


In his dreams he dances until dawn

But she never even notices he’s gone

She’s lost in a novel somewhere off the southern coast of France

And in the morning she watches as he pulls away

He almost turns around, she almost shouts “Please stay home today!”

Oh, but neither takes the chance


How many love songs never get sung

How many sweet thoughts die on the tip of the tongue

Victims of unspoken love

Tell me How many lonely people there are

Left holding the pieces of a broken heart

Tokens of unspoken love

I have no idea what to say to this. It makes me so very sad in the heart and I am so sorry it hit you so unexpectedly and hard. CALL ME, sobbing or not, anytime you need to.

Oh my goodness - you are a blessing - I had a tape when I was a kid and on that tape was this song - unspoken love and another song by the same singer - whose name I didn't know until just now. I have been searching for years - I love both of the songs and have them memorized to this day but never knew who sang them until now. You my new friend - just solved a many year old mystery. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. By the way - I just checked out your blog and I am very interested. I think God lead me to you today.
