"Silence" is a song by Kylie Minogue. Recorded during the sessions for her eleventh studio album Aphrodite (2010), the song didn't make the album's final track list, but appeared as the B-side to "Put Your Hands Up (If You Feel Love)", which was released as the fourth and final single from Aphrodite in May 2011.

Written by Henry Samuel, Chris Bruce and Stuart Price, with production being handled by the latter, the song features live guitars as well as drum machines, much like other songs that were recorded in that period. At a length of three minuted and forty-two seconds, the song deals with Kylie's ability to understand her lover "in the silence, so there's no need to say a word".

Lyrics

Lying on the ground together staring at the stars
The night can carry us forever we're ready to go far...
Beyond the realm of us is nothing nothing that matters
The world can fall apart but love, love won't be shattered!

You take the words from my mouth
Like you take the beat from my heart...
Never had this with anyone else
I just don't wanna be apart

I understand you in the silence
So there's no need to say a word
It feels so right you can't deny it
The best is what you haven't heard...

Time has lost it's meaning when you hold me in your arms
And I can hear so clearly in the quiet in the dark
Skin to skin so close to me
There's nowhere else I'd rather be...

You take the words from my mouth
Like you take the beat from my heart
Never had this with anyone else
I just don't wanna be apart
I understand you in the silence...

So there's no need to say a word
It feels so right you can't deny it
The best is what you haven't heard

Skin to skin to skin so close to me
There's nowhere else I'd rather be...
Skin to skin to skin!
Skin to skin to skin!

I understand you in the silence
So there's no need to say a word
It feels so right you can't deny it
The best is what you haven't heard...
I understand you in the silence
So there's no need to say a word
It feels so right you can't deny it
The best is what you haven't heard...
