"Words" as written by and Jimi/williams Goodwin....
Inside's a heart of summer soul
Don't let them throw it asway
'Cause inside something solid gold
so don't let them throw it away
Words they mean nothing
so you can't hurt me
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't stop me

Words they meant nothing
So you can't hurt me
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't stop me

I said your eyes, they say nothing
So you can't hurt me
On summer days like these
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't hurt me

Follow your own path from here
So don't listen to what they say
Cause inside you've a heart of gold
So don't let them take this away

Words they meant nothing
So you can't hurt me
On summer days like these
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't stop me
On summer days like these

I said your eyes, they say nothing
So you can't fault me
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't hurt me

Inside a heart of pure soul
A sun rising and falling away, like your soul
Cause here comes something wonderful
So don't let them throw it away

Words they meant nothing
So you can't hurt me
On summer days like these
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't stop me
On summer days like these

I said your eyes, they say nothing
So you can't stop me
On summer days like these
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't hurt me

    General CommentI really love this song. I think there has been a resugence of songs with positive messages, and that's really great. In the midst of all the angst in the world, its nice to hear a song about taking charge, being strong, and not letting someone else dictate how you value yourself.

    General Commenti can't believe more people haven't listened to them - they're kind of like Coldplay, so you'd think they'd gather a large bandwagon. it's probably because they don't tour the US. this song, though, is just plain awesome with the "i won't let anything get in my way" message - a really positive song. for all you fans, the third album's coming out in March '05...can't wait!

    General CommentI wouldn't say they were like Coldplay, more like Radiohead on Prozac. LOL.
    Anyway I love the positivity in this one. The tune pounds on and flows on relentlessly.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that in one of the verses they say
    "words, they mean nothing, so you can't f*** me."
    Anyone else hear that?
