More than Words – Extreme


Saying I love you
Is not the words I want to hear from you
It’s not that I want you
Not to say, but if you only knew
How easy it would be to show me how you feel
More than words is all you have to do to make it real
Then you wouldn’t have to say that you love me
Cos I’d already know
What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn’t make things new
Just by saying I love you
More than words
Now I’ve tried to talk to you and make you understand
All you have to do is close your eyes
And just reach out your hands and touch me
Hold me close don’t ever let me go
More than words is all I ever needed you to show
Then you wouldn’t have to say that you love me
Cos I’d already know
What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn’t make things new
Just by saying I love you

Papa Bear has been teaching guitar for as long as I’ve known him and almost always taught from the basement of his home. So when I was a kid a few nights a week after he got home from job #1, sometimes without a stop in the kitchen for dinner, he would head downstairs to shape the young musical minds of our small town. It was one of his pupils, a highschool student named James something-or-other, who wanted to learn this song. Dad’s great like that. He’ll teach you anything you want to learn. So they would listen to the song over and over and over again to learn the chord structure, timing, and lyrics.

I never tired of hearing this song on repeat.

…and for laughs…
