GRACEFUL MAN          
©1991 Sally Fingerett, Green Fingers Music, BMI

Is he a dancer, or is he crazy
The way his hands move all around
His lips are moving, I hear nothing
He’s asking questions without a sound
Asking would I like to walk  
Through his silent world
Show me how the silent talk
Graceful man, graceful hands
How I long to understand

Does he notice people staring
Spelling out his name to me
My lips are moving, I hear nothing
He dances my name back at me
Asking would I like to dance
Through his silent world
Show me how the silent dance
Graceful man, graceful hands
How I long to understand

Ooh, I long to tell him I’d be his
And to tell him of my loneliness
Ooh, but now I see that it’s my turn
Now I’m the one who cannot speak - to that
Graceful man, graceful hands
How I long to understand

He is spinning moving pictures
He is singing in the wind
Next to him now I stand silent
With my eyes, I’m listening
Love can be a silent message
Tossed out in the wind
With his heart I know he hears me
Loving him
Graceful man, graceful hands
How I long to understand
