lyrics

The Right Words

I wasted weeks
Trying to find the words to say
Ripped up reams and reams
Yet I only dreamed up tired cliches

And babe,
It’s hard to say
But if what I want’s there
Words won’t matter anyway

Well what’s the worth
In words so wonderful they’d win your heart?
When I never wanted to sweet-talk you
Just wanted you to want me from the start

And babe,
It’s hard to say
But if what I want’s there
Words won’t matter anyway
And babe,
It’s hard to explain
But if what I want’s there
Words won’t matter anyway
