I know that you're hiding things
Using gentle words to shelter me
Your words were like a dream
But dreams could never fool me
Not that easily

I acted so distant then
Didn't say goodbye before you left
But I was listening
You'll fight your battles far from me
Far too easily

Save your tears, 'cuz I'll come back
I could hear that you whispered
As you walked through that door
But still I swore
To hide the pain when I turned
Back the pages
Shouting might have been the answer
What if I'd cried my eyes out
And begged you not to depart?
But now I'm not afraid
To say what's in my heart

For 1000 words
That have never been spoken
Will fly to you
Crossing over the time and distance
Holding you
Suspended on silver wings

And 1000 words
1000 confessions
Will cradle you
Making all of the pain you feel
Seem far away
They'll hold you forever

The dream isn't over yet
Though I often say I can't forget
I still relive that day
You've been there with me all the way
I still hear you say

Wait for me, I'll write you letters
I could see how you stand
With your eyes to the floor
But still I swore
To hide the doubt
When i turned back the pages

Anger might have been the answer
What if I'd hung my head
And said that I couldn't wait
But now I'm strong enough
To know it's not too late

'Cuz 1000 words
Called out through the ages
Will fly to you
Even though we can't see
I know they're reaching you
Suspended on silver wings

Oh, 1000 words
1000 embraces
Will cradle you
Making all of your weary days
Seem far away
They'll hold you forever

1000 words
Have never been spoken
Will fly to you
They'll carry you home
And back into my arms
Suspended on silver wings
Oh

And 1000 words
Called out through the ages
Will cradle you
Turning all of your lonely years
To holy days
They'll hold you forever

    General CommentI was thinking this song might be depicting a persons friend who was in love with them but was turned away. The beloved later regretted it and is trying to call the other back.

    General CommentI love this song, one of my favorites, I too know it from finalfantasy x-2 but I also know other versions of it. I love it so much.
    Its about how a young girl loves someone but he goes off to war and she tries to explain how much she loves him though this song.
