      "When You Say Nothing At All"

      It's amazing how you
      Can speak right to my heart.
      Without saying a word
      You can light up the dark.

      Try as I may, I could never explain
      What I hear when you don't say a thing.

      [Chorus:]
      The smile on your face
      Lets me know that you need me.
      There's a truth in your eyes
      Saying you'll never leave me.
      The touch of your hand says you'll catch me wherever I fall.
      You say it best when you say nothing at all.

      All day long I can hear
      People talking out loud (oooh).
      But when you hold me near (you hold me near)
      You drown out the crowd (the crowd, the crowd).

      Try as they may, they can never define
      What's been said between your heart and mine.

      [Chorus:]
      The smile on your face
      Lets me know that you need me.
      There's a truth in your eyes
      Saying you'll never leave me.
       The touch of your hand says you'll catch me wherever I fall.
       You say it best (you say it best) when you say nothing at all.
      'Cause you say it best (you say it best) when you say nothing at all.

      [Chorus:]
      The smile on your face
      Lets me know that you need me.
      There's a truth in your eyes
      Saying you'll never leave me.
       The touch of your hand says you'll catch me wherever I fall.
       You say it best (you say it best) when you say nothing at all.
      'Cause you say it best (you say it best) when you say nothing at all.

      (You say it best when you say nothing at all.
      You say it best when you say nothing at all.)

      That smile on your face,
       The truth in your eyes,
      The touch of your hand
      Lets me know that you need me.

      (You say it best when you say nothing at all.
      You say it best when you say nothing at all.)

      I can't sleep tonight
      Everybody saying everything's alright
      Still I can't close my eyes
      I'm seeing a tunnel at the end of all these lights 

      Sunny days
      Where have you gone?
      I get the strangest feeling you belong
      Why does it always rain on me?
      Is it because I lied when I was seventeen?
      Why does it always rain on me?
      Even when the sun is shining
      I can't avoid the lightning 

      I can't stand myself
      I'm being held up by an invisible man
      Still life on a shelf when
      I got my mind on something else 

      Sunny days
      Where have you gone?
      I get the strangest feeling you belong
      Why does it always rain on me?
      Is it because I lied when I was seventeen?
      Why does it always rain on me?
      Even when the sun is shining
      I can't avoid the lightning 

      Oh, where did the blue skies go?
      And why is it raining so?
      It's so cold 
      I can't sleep tonight
      Everybody's saying everything's all right
      Still I can't close my eyes
      I'm seeing a tunnel at the end of the lights 

      Sunny days
      Where have you gone?
      I get the strangest feeling you belong
      Why does it always rain on me?
      Is it because I lied when I was seventeen?
      Even when the sun is shining
      I can't avoid the lightning
      Oh, where did the blue skies go?
      And why is it raining so?
      It's so cold
      Why does it always rain on me?
      Why does it always rain on....

      There was a game we used to play
      We would hit the town on Friday night
      And stay in bed until Sunday
      We used to be so free
      We were living for the love we had and
      Living not for reality

      It was just my imagination [x3]

      There was a time I used to pray
      I have always kept my faith in love
      It's the greatest thing from the man above
      The game I used to play
      I've always put my cards upon the table
      Let it never be said that I'd be unstable

      It was just my imagination [x3]

      There is a game I like to play
      I like to hit the town on Friday night
      And stay in bed until Sunday
      We'll always be this free
      We will be living for the love we have
      Living not for reality

      It's not my imagination [x3]
      Not my [x18]

      Maybe it's intuition 
      But some things you just don't question
      Like in your eyes
      I see my future in an instant
      and there it goes
      I think I've found my best friend
      I know that it might sound more than
      a little crazy but I believe 

      [chorus:] 

      I knew I loved you before I met you
      I think I dreamed you into life
      I knew I loved you before I met you
      I have been waiting all my life 

      There's just no rhyme or reason
      only this sense of completion
      and in your eyes
      I see the missing pieces
      I'm searching for
      I think I found my way home
      I know that it might sound more than
      a little crazy but I believe

      [chorus:] 

      I knew I loved you before I met you
      I think I dreamed you into life
      I knew I loved you before I met you
      I have been waiting all my life 

      A thousand angels dance around you
      I am complete now that I found you 

      [repeat chorus to fade]

      Esas manos que me llevan 
      por las calles de la vida 
      esa cara que me obliga 
      a mirarla de rodillas 
      sólo hay una, sólo hay una 
      o tú, o ninguna 

      Esa voz que me aconseja 
      no creer en las sonrisas 
      ese pelo que me cubre 
      como lluvia de caricias 
      sólo hay una, sólo hay una 
      o tú, o ninguna 

      O tú, o ninguna 
      no tengo salida 
      pues detrás de ti mi amor 
      tan sólo hay bruma 
      si no existieras 
      yo te inventaría 
      como el sol al día 
      o tú, o ninguna 

      Esa que de puro honesta 
      en el fondo te molesta 
      esa que te admira tanto 
      que te obliga a ser un santo 
      sólo hay una, sólo hay una 
      o tú, o ninguna 

      Confidente de mis sueños 
      de mis pasos cada día 
      su mirada mi camino 
      y su vida ya mi vida... 
      o tú, o ninguna 
      no tengo salida 
      pues detrás de ti mi amor 
      tan solo hay bruma 

      Si no existieras 
      yo te inventaría 
      pues sin duda alguna 
      o tú 
      o tú, o ninguna 
      o tú, o ninguna

    • All jokes have to have an element of truth ..... and THIS one certainly does!
    • It's a difficult doctrine, with an easy explanation. The Earth is about 3.5 billion years old. Each creative day is (3.5 billion divided by 7 = 500,000,000) about 500 million years.. Armageddon will occur at the "End of Days". Therefore ... "Stay Alive, 'till 500,001,975". See? The math works out perfectly, AND it agrees with fossils ! TA DA! Plus! --- the .ORG gets a LOT of "wiggle room". As Marvin Webster sez: "Ya'll think about it."    
    • Like you, I find it difficult to envision Christ's enthronement in 33 CE, for pretty much the same reasons as you. The urgency and keeping on the watch would almost seem cruel, if it was to last nearly 2000 years. Unless you think about those who have been waiting since the end of the 1800's and that have now died. Well for them, it was a lifetime of waiting anyway, so pretty much we could say that there would be no difference between someone waiting their whole lifetime in the middle ages and dying, than someone waiting their whole lifetime and dying now. I mean with respect to the individual. It seems like the scripture "Therefore, beloved ones, since you are awaiting these things, do your utmost to be found finally by him spotless and unblemished and in peace"  would have practical meaning for both individuals. I am assuming that most ordinary folk (at least in Christianized nations) were aware that if they lived a good and godly life they would land in heaven. That was the reward. But you do make a good point when you say that the holy writings were not accessible to ordinary folk, and most couldn't read so would they even know  what Peter wrote about in 2 Peter ch3? On top of that, "Christian" religion, Catholicism, did not advocate millennialism much, if at all. It wasn't until the protestant reformation in the 16 the century that millenialism was revived. Excerpt from the Catholic encyclopedia: (I don't expect you to read it all, just here for info) " Protestant fanatics (lol) of the earlier years, particularly the Anabaptists, believed in a new, golden age under the sceptre of Christ, after the overthrow of the papacy and secular empires. In 1534 the Anabaptists set up in Münster (Westphalia) the new Kingdom of Zion, which advocated sharing property and women in common, as a prelude to the new kingdom of Christ. Their excesses were opposed and their millenarianism disowned by both the Augsberg (art. 17) and the Helvetian Confession (ch. 11), so that it found no admission into the Lutheran and Reformed theologies. Nevertheless, the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries produced new apocalyptic fanatics (lol) and mystics who expected the millennium in one form or another: in Germany, the Bohemian and Moravian Brethren (Comenius); in France, Pierre Jurien (L'Accomplissement des Propheties, 1686); in England at the time of Cromwell, the Independents and Jane Leade. A new phase in the development of millenarian views among the Protestants commenced with Pietism. One of the chief champions of the millennium in Germany was I.A. Bengel and his disciple Crusius, who were afterwards joined by Rothe, Volch, Thiersch, Lange and others. Protestants from Wurtemberg emigrated to Palestine (Temple Communities) in order to be closer to Christ at His second advent. Certain fantastical sects of England and North America, such as the Irvingites, Mormons, Adventists, adopted both apocalyptic and millenarian views, expecting the return of Christ and the establishment of His kingdom at an early date. Some Catholic theologians of the nineteenth century championed a moderate, modified millenarianism, especially in connection with their explanations of the Apocalypse. So it would appear that anyone living from 33 C.E  up to the 16th century (apart from the disciples and early Christian congregation, and some early church fathers) would have no idea about even the existence of the coming of Christ as king of a 1000 year kingdom...  
    • No idea. The primary point was that people would tremble at such signs in the heavens. A space race with military implications was already hinted at in part of the yw book, which was already about Daniel and therefore had the king of the north in its sights.
    • Another sinister feather in the cap of the northern king. Did he want to tie in the Daniel prophesy?
    • Since you are asking, I'll take a cue from 1 Peter 3:15 and let you know what I'm thinking here. First of all we already believe that Jesus began to rule in 33. (I hope that was a mistake where you said 1933.) (Colossians 1:13-20) . . .He rescued us from the authority of the darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 by means of whom we have our release by ransom, the forgiveness of our sins. 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; 16 because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All other things have been created through him and for him. 17 Also, he is before all other things, and by means of him all other things were made to exist, 18 and he is the head of the body, the congregation. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might become the one who is first in all things; 19 because God was pleased to have all fullness to dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all other things by making peace through the blood he shed on the torture stake, whether the things on the earth or the things in the heavens. There is no indication here that the Kingdom of God's Son is any different than the Kingdom of God which had now become the Kingdom of his Christ. In fact, you might notice a couple of other parallels between Colossians and Revelation, including the hurling down of Satan (rescuing us from the authority of the darkness). Also, perhaps by coincidence, the immediate context of Colossians also discussed the salvation and the power and the Kingdom and the authority and the conquering through the blood of the Lamb. (Revelation 12:10, 11) . . .Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the Kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God! 11 And they conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their witnessing, and they did not love their souls even in the face of death. The idea that Satan was cast down in 33 is also repeated several times in the Greek Scriptures.
    • One unanticipated personal consequence of going digital is that I read nothing until the week it is to be considered at meeting. I have not read the new Ezekiel book yet. Back in the day of subscriptions, I would read that entire Watchtower at the nearest opportunity. Doesn’t happen anymore. I never think to download the latest until I need it. In recent years I’ve come to think a lot about Paul’s counsel to follow the pattern of the healthful words. At first, the healthful words are retrieved and spit out verbatim—it is the nature of much of our research. But if you’ve been around long enough, you soon to learn to pick up on the pattern and you can originate them yourself.  It is as Mike Tussin used to say, a real person from No Fake News whose name I changed with the most sordid upbringing and the most telling common sense. He would explain how it was with the GB (in the 1970s). “They study and study and one of them notices a point and discusses it with the others. After subsequent discussion reaches agreement, it gets into print. Now, in your own personal study, you may have noticed that point, too,” I can hear him explaining now, “and if this was Christendom, you’d go out and start your own religion over it.”  For a brief time, he was a roommate of mine. He drove me nuts in taking literally the admonition to read God’s Word “in an undertone day and night.” In time, he learned that he had better not do it in my presence.
