Words Are Not Enough

"Words Are Not Enough"

Lyrics by Elaine Bassett © 1999

 

Sometimes words are not enough

And they get in the way of what I’m trying to say

There isn’t any combination that I can think of that means precisely what I want to express

Even if I’m at my best

I can’t describe what happens to me when you walk into the room or

I hear your voice call my name

There’s something about you that I can’t explain

I’ve always known it from the moment we met-

Lightning never strikes twice

 

We always find ourselves sneaking away

We’re birds of a feather always longing to be together

There’s something about you that I can’t explain

I’ve always known it from the moment we met-

Things happen for a reason

 

When we are together words are not enough

I find they get in the way of what I truly meant to say

When we were children we had starring roles that we would act out

We made a pact

But in this play you rewrote the ending and the pirate that stole my heart promised to never give it back-

Be careful whom you give your heart to

 

Was it worth it I can’t say

I miss you every day

What I’m really trying to say is-

 

Sometimes words are not enough

And they get in the way of what I think I’m trying to say

There isn’t a combination of words that I can think of that means precisely what my heart wants to express

I can’t describe what happens to me when you walk into the room or

I hear your voice call my name

There’s something about you that I still can’t explain

I’ve always known it from the moment we met-

Lightning never strikes twice

 

We always find ourselves sneaking away

We’re birds of a feather we’ll always long to be together

There’s something about you that I can’t explain

I’ve always known it from the moment we met-

Things happen for a reason

 

When we are together words are not enough

I find they are going to get in the way of what I truly want to say

When we were young we had starring roles that we would act out

We made a pact

But in this play the pirate stole my heart and promised to never give it back

Lessons of the heart are hard to learn

Especially when they burn

You’re still an ember to a flame

Be careful who you give your heart to
