"Words" as written by and Bobby/boyce Hart....
Words are better when they're written down
They fall to the page with no sound
And if you let them sit awhile,
Give them time and distance.
She won't hear the rattle in your voice
That gives a fool away with no choice
Time is all you have tonight
Take the time and get this right

Your eyes make me humble,
I fall down at your feet.
Pick me up if I stumble
Over words I can not speak.
I can't speak

And so I'm fighting an empty page
For the words I've got to say
The sun brings another day and here I am still reaching
I hear the sound of a morning train
I watch it waking you up again
These things I can't explain
But here I am still speaking

Your eyes make me humble,
See, I fall down at your feet.
Pick me up if I stumble
Over words I can not speak.
I just can't speak

And you say if you doubted me,
You would take all that was yours and just go
So take what you've given me,
If these words don't voice what a heart just knowsâ?¦

Your eyes make me humble,
See, I fall down at your feet.
Pick me up if I stumble
Over words I can not speak.
I just can't speakâ?¦

Speak

    General CommentThis song reveals the struggle of a person in love who has taken up the daunting task of trying to express this love in words. He seems intent on capturing his sentiment verbally "So take what you've given me/if these words don't voice what this heart just knows."

    Still, he is unable to pin down feelings that transcend language.

    The irony here is that Ellis Paul writes perhaps the most simple and profound lyric of love that I've ever heard in my life in a song about being unable to accomplish such a feat:

    "Your eyes make me humble."

    It's the most poignant and chilling phrase I've ever heard.
