Lynn Anderson — If Silence Is Golden lyrics

(Silence is golden)
If silence is golden like they say it to be
If silence is golden then how rich I must be
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/lynn-anderson-if-silence-is-golden-lyrics.html ]
Once this house with love and laughter used to sing
So much happiness through rafters seemed to ring
Now you're gone there's only silence from the bottom to the top
It's so quiet now I can almost hear a teardrop
If silence is golden...
[ piano ]
Once this room with footsteps echoed everywhere
Sounds of happy people walking here and there
Then one day a past divided you walked out and didn't stop
It's so quiet now I can almost hear a teardrop
If silence is golden...
If silence is golden then how rich I must be
