Tanya Tucker

Tanya Denise Tucker (born October 10, 1958, in Seminole, Texas) is a female American country music artist who had her first hit, "Delta Dawn", in 1972 at the age of 13. Over the succeeding decades, Tucker became one of the few child performers to mature into adulthood without losing her audience, and during the course of her career, she notched a streak of Top 10 and Top 40 hits. She has had several successful albums, several Country Music Association award nominations, and hit songs such as 1973's "What's Your Mama's Name?" and "Blood Red and Goin' Down," 1975's "Lizzie and the Rainman," and 1988's "Strong Enough to Bend". more »

She tests every word like a fine wine 
She holds every thought like her last dime 
You can hear a pin drop from miles away 
You can hear a heart stop as plain as day 
We live in a land where silence is king 
Whispers have all disappeared 
Cry for an echo, you won't hear a thing 
Silence is king around here 
Silence is king around here 

Where are the dreams we were after 
Where is the joy and the laughter 
Were they only habits we were doomed to lose 
Or is destiny not ours to choose 

We live in a land where silence is king 
Whispers have all disappeared 
Cry for an echo, you won't hear a thing 
Silence is king around here 
Silence is king around here 
Desperate measures come from desperate times 
I don't regret what I have done 
If my actions made you speak your mind 
Angry words are better than none 

We live in a land where silence is king 
Whispers have all disappeared 
Cry for an echo, you won't hear a thing 
Silence is king around here 
Silence is king around here 

Silence is king around here
