In the heat of the moment we can say what we don’t mean
When I hear your words of love I’m back to being eighteen

When I tell you what I’m feeling
Somehow you miss the meaning
You don’t understand what I say
Or I use my words the wrong way

Words
Are easy come
And easy go
Cut us down
Or help us grow
Words
Have their place
Find their way
Bind us together
Make us stay

You’re words are powerful weapons, amazing tools
Think about what you say, you can be so cruel

Nurtured, handled with care
Fully formed their beauty is there
When you use them the wrong way
Our love starts to decay

Some are sugar coated
Never sure of your motives
Your calm words can soothe any hurt
Fired with a temper make it worse

Words
Are easy come
And easy go
Cut us down
Or help us grow
Words
Have their place
Find their way
Force us apart
Send us away

I never say anything without wanting to be heard
There’s always meaning behind every word
The only thing that’s not so clear
Is that sometimes you don’t want to hear

Words

And easy go

Cut us down

Pick up my guitar and play/Sitting at my piano I start to play
Think of you and drift away
As your memory lingers
The music’s in my fingers
Like perfume in the air
The good times we shared

Looking back I’ve come to see
Just what you meant to me
Washing over me is the best
I close my eyes I’m refreshed
Melodies around my head
Echoes every word you said

Chorus
I know that I can’t be with you
I know that you’re heart is true
What we want
We can’t always have
We had a moment
I remember that
Remember that
Remember that

So I sit here singing to you
Reliving what we went through
Telling you of my heartache
All too little all too late

I know you couldn’t stay
It still hurts me to this day
I couldn’t come after you
Even if you wanted me too


Soft whisper (Because)

Chorus
I know that I can’t be with you
I know that you’re heart is true
What we want
We can’t always have
We had a moment
I remember that
Remember that
Remember that

(Bridge idea)
Thought I was brave opening my heart
Didn’t expect it to get ripped apart
I was alone for so long
Thought we could work but it went wrong

Everyday since you went
Forever living those moments
They were over too soon
Stop playing it’s an empty room
Memories and moments
Times that we shared
It’s better to jump and fall
Than never to jump at all


Soft whisper (Because)

Chorus
I know that I can’t be with you
I know that you’re heart is true
What we want
We can’t always have
We had a moment
I remember that
Remember that
Remember that

I loved you
I never meant to hurt you
But I could never be with you
What we want we can’t always have
We had a moment
Remember that
Remember that
Remember that

I Remember That

If I could tell you what you mean to me
If I could show you how we belong
If I could tell you how I want it to be
If I could explain what went wrong

If you could share in my vision
If I could write a love song would you listen
If I could make it rhyme and clear
Would you listen would you hear

If I could write a love song
Would it all make sense
Would it be futile and useless
If I could write a love song
Would it all make sense
Be worthwhile or meaningless

But they’d only be words
Yes they’d have meaning
It’s not easy to reveal
Reveal my feelings
Everyday more distance
A bigger gap between us
Everyday we’re in danger
Of becoming strangers

If I could tell you what you mean to me
If I could show you how we belong
If I could tell you how I want it to be
If I could explain what went wrong

If you could share my vision
If I could write a love song would you listen
If I could make it rhyme and clear
Would you listen would you hear

If I could write a love song
Would it all make sense
Would it be futile and useless
If I could write a love song
Would it all make sense
Be worthwhile or meaningless

I try to be tough
I try to be caring
But you need more
Loving and sharing

Waiting for the right moment
Waiting for the right time
Waiting to show you how
Waiting to put my heart on the line
If I put it out there will you understand
If I make a gesture that’s grand
If I totally bare my soul
If I do will it fill the hole

If I could tell you what you mean to me
If I could show you how we belong
If I could tell you how I want it to be
If I could explain what went wrong

If you could share my vision
If I could write a love song would you listen
If I could make it rhyme and clear
Would you listen would you hear

If I could write a love song
Would it all make sense
Would it be futile and useless
If I could write a love song
Would it all make sense
Be worthwhile or meaningless

I needed to wake up
Wake up and smell the roses
Smell the roses

The truth has been missing
Missing for so long
Then today it hit me
Hit me something was wrong
I’ve been deluded
Deluded by my own vision
I’ve been beaten down
Down in this war of attrition

But today no more
It’s got to stop
Today no more
No more I’ve had enough

I miss you
I miss the closeness
I needed to wake up
Wake up and smell the roses
Smell the roses

We weren’t moving
Moving forward anymore
I found myself looking
Looking for the door
We are no longer
No longer complete
Into battle like a General
A General facing defeat

We fell in
Fell into a trap
Seems no way
No way of getting back
We lost touch and it’s
It’s easy to tell
That we need to
Need to find ourselves

There’s just so many things I have to do
Climb hurdles jump through hoops
Just to get to you

But today no more
It’s got to stop
Today no more
No more I’ve had enough

I miss you
I miss the closeness
I needed to wake up
Wake up and smell the roses
Smell the roses

Smell The Roses

Talking about me behind my back
Venomous voices silent attack
People making comments about me
Making assumptions they can’t see what I see
Their whispers and idle chatter
About things that don’t matter

Rumours gossip and lies
So called friends in disguise
They will know I was right
When the truth eventually comes to light
When the truth comes to light
To those who hated
I’ll be vindicated

Not meant as malicious just having some fun
But it’s too late when the damage is done
So called friends holding their station
Avoiding eye contact and confrontation
Gossip mongers spreading their lies
Ignoring the consequences friends go by

Rumours gossip and lies
So called friends in disguise
They will know I was right
When the truth eventually comes to light
When the truth comes to light
To those who hated
I’ll be vindicated

Nameless people with no time to invest
Always thinking that they know best
Rooms full of deceptive eyes
True thoughts in disguise
Not caring what happens at all
Smiling waiting for you to fall

Smiling assasins talking about you
Spreading more of their untruths
Get ready for the surprising
They’re wrong in their surmising
Voices plotting your downfall
Ignore them all walking tall

Rumours gossip and lies
So called friends in disguise
They will know I was right
When the truth eventually comes to light
When the truth comes to light
To those who hated
I’ll be vindicated

Desperate to know all your secrets
Sealed lips the only way to keep it
Never knowing all of the facts
Making assumptions based on that
Forever picking their way through
Always conspiring against you

Don’t let it get you down
talking all over town
About something you didn’t do
Everything said untrue
Be a better person walk away
Every dog has its day

Rumours gossip and lies
So called friends in disguise
They will know I was right
When the truth eventually comes to light
When the truth comes to light
To those who hated
I’ll be vindicated

It’s the way of the world
It will never change
If you are happy or successful
Gossip a fair exchange

They will know I was right
When the truth comes to light
To those who hated
I’ll be vindicated

Faceless people talking about you
Spreading rumours and untruths
Mistrust on every face
Shame vanishes without a trace

Rumours Gossip And lies

Stood in a field arms stretched out to the side
Right in the middle exposed nowhere to hide
Over the years he starts to decay
It’s the way it is he’s made that way
If they don’t come and put him back together
He could be gone and lost forever

Though he stands in his field all alone
He’s not bothered because it’s his home
Through all the seasons rain and snow
No desire to move nowhere else to go
The wind whistles it’s same old song
Something he knows how to hum along

Watching over his world everyday
Doing his best to keep the birds away
Waiting until the sun starts the day
Watching it go all the way around
Not over till it goes back down

He feels important doing his job
protecting his crop the birds continually rob
Out in all weathers doing his best
Scaring the birds trying not to get stressed
Dressed in clothes discarded and used
Can’t they see him he’s confused

Just string and rags no tricks
Wrapped around some old sticks
Everyday at the setting sun
If birds fly away his work is done
The next day the sun will rise
The flutter of wings fill his eyes

Watching over his world everyday
Doing his best to keep the birds away
Waiting until the sun starts the day
Watching it go all the way around
Not over till it goes back down

He stands there alone telling them to go
But he is over run by the ignorant crows
He has all the time to ponder
Hasn’t got the legs to wander
He’s not as lonely as he may seem
He has all the time in the world to dream

Just string and rags no tricks
Wrapped around some old sticks
Everyday at the setting sun
If birds fly away his work is done
The next day the sun will rise
The flutter of wings fill his eyes

Watching over his world everyday
Doing his best to keep the birds away
Waiting until the sun starts the day
Watching it go all the way around
Not over till it goes back down

Didn’t know how long she’d loved him
But he had known for a while
Could he admit to loving her back
But that just wasn’t his style

Feelings, a whole new bag of worms
The whole thing seemed absurd
She needed to hear him say it
But to him they were just words

It was coming coming coming to a head
He was recoiling from what he never said
Regrets, trying to undo the wrong
Desperate to figure out where he belongs

And all he had to do
Was say I love you too
What he couldn’t do
Was say I love you too

Can’t figure himself out
But through the anguish and hurt
No matter how hard he tried
He just couldn’t say the words

Suffering in silence
Brain not connected to his mouth
No matter how hard he tried
They just wouldn’t come out

It was coming coming coming to a head
He was recoiling from what he never said
Regrets, trying to undo the wrong
Desperate to figure out where he belongs

And all he had to do
Was say I love you too
What he couldn’t do
Was say I love you too

Torture and toment
Was it worth the cost
Torture and torment
Good love will be lost

It was coming coming coming to a head
He was recoiling from what he never said
Regrets, trying to undo the wrong
Desperate to figure out where he belongs

And all he had to do
Was say I love you too
What he couldn’t do
Was say I love you too

I Love You Too

It takes two to tango
My trusted partner I’m thrown
It takes two to tango
Now I’m dancing alone

Always did the best I can
But you changed the plan
I wasn’t ready to give up yet
Going over and over the steps
Always there to take my hand
But now gone I don’t understand

Hurtful things have been said
My feet once light now are lead
My feet no longer want to move
Without my partner I can’t improve
We tried to perfect the routine
But it was all a stupid dream

It takes two to tango
My trusted partner I’m thrown
It takes two to tango
Now I’m dancing alone
It takes two to tango
My trusted partner and friend
It takes two to tango
Doesn’t feel like we’ll dance again

I always thought that you would stay
But you danced off the other way
I’m lost and lonely at home
It’s not possible to tango alone
I knew something was a miss
We’ll never get to tango in Paris

It takes two to tango
My trusted partner I’m thrown
It takes two to tango
Now I’m dancing alone
It takes two to tango
My trusted partner and friend
It takes two to tango
Doesn’t feel like we’ll dance again

We never had a chance
We chose the wrong dance
As the dust settles on my shoes
Got it wrong so we both loose

It takes two to tango
My trusted partner I’m thrown
It takes two to tango
Now I’m dancing alone
It takes two to tango
My trusted partner and friend
It takes two to tango
Doesn’t feel like we’ll dance again
