Words   (Dino/Sembello)

Words aren't falling in line like they should
Words aren't meaning the things that they could
Twin scattered whispers  on ears made of wood
She cannot hear me so my words are no good

Words used to be a way to get through
Words aren't meaning the way they used to
Think I said that before

My heart like a bird that can no longer fly
In a cage made of words and I cannot say why
Rose-colored phrases have turned into lies
The longer you're lonely the longer you die

I don't know why I even try
She never hears me
She never hears me

No use in talkin' bout words known by heart
The sound drowns in static, the words fall apart
They die in the air or still born and unknown
The seed never lands so our love never grows

Words used to be a way to get through
Words aren't meaning the way they used to
Think I said that before

I don't know why I even try
She never hears me
She never hears me

Words used to be a way to get through
Words aren't meaning the way they used to
Think I said that before
