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…

    Do you also know how to play this on guitar? You must be very good at playing the instrument. I mean you had your dad to teach you. I wish my dad was musically-inclined. I mean he can sing karaoke but that’s all. I envy my friends because they know how to play musical instruments, I don’t. I love this song too and I once promised myself that if I ever get to learn how to play the guitar, this is the first piece I’m gonna play.

    • I don’t play guitar, oddly enough. While dad was teaching guitar, mom was teaching piano so I started taking piano lessons when I was around 7 years old. I wasn’t interested in the guitar until I was highschool age. I asked dad to teach me but I wanted to learn left-hand (like Ziggy) which meant dad would have had to restring a guitar for me and in the end, I didn’t push and it just didn’t happen. I look at guitar music and the fret and it confuses and overwhelms me. But if you want to learn, you should do it! I’ve heard it’s harder to learn to play a musical instrument the older you get. I think the piano, if it’s something that interests you, is very friendly to people trying to teach themselves or learning at a later age.

      That said – I’m glad you love this song too. It’s just kind of the perfect love song.
