"Couldn't Have Said It Better" as written by and James/sixx Michael....
And you said nothing at all
Well I couldn't have said it better myself
Tonight the conversation takes the fall
Just love me like you love nobody else

Little lady, I think there's something on your mind
I've known you long enough to know
The words are not that hard to find

And the harder you try and the longer you go
Well there's nothing but love in those eyes any more
You know what to say but you never know how
You can keep your mouth shut because it doesn't really matter right now

I will guide you all the way
Because I know exactly what you're trying to say

You have the right to remain silent
I'll get the lights, you get that smile

And you say nothing at all
Well I couldn't have said it better myself
Tonight the conversation takes the fall
Just love me like you love nobody else

I see the angels, they're standing right outside your door
They're watching over me, they're watching over us all
You can send them home tonight, because you won't need them anymore
In your arms I think I've found the safest place to fall
When I step in the door and I stare at your face
There are so many things that I wish I could say
Well I struggle with words but they put up a fight
You can keep your mouth shut, because it doesn't really matter tonight

I will guide you all the way
Because I know exactly what you're trying to say
You have the right to remain silent
I'll get the lights
You get that smile

And you say nothing at all
Well I couldn't have said it better myself
Tonight the conversation takes the fall
Just love me like you love nobody else

And I know you feel the same
You've been searching for the words,
Now you know what to say

Just say nothing
Don't say a word
Silence is gold
Don't say a word

This is the moment we've been waiting for
If I exercise my right
I will take your body language and hold it against you tonight

And I know you feel the same
I've wondered all my life, if this moment comes would I know what to say
Then you say nothing at all
So many times I stumbled on the words I wanted to say
Then you say nothing at all
So many thoughts, that I should have just let my heart explain
Then you say nothing at all
So many ways we could turn the words around
Then you say nothing at all
So many nights our hearts came crashing to the ground
Then you say nothing at all
So many dreams that are finally coming true
Well, I couldn't have said it better myself
Now you finish me off when you finish my thoughts the way you do

You say nothing at all
Well I couldn't have said it better myself
Tonight the conversation takes the fall
Just love me like you love nobody else

    General CommentI love this song!!!! Its just saying that sometimes the best thing you can do is say nothing, and that when your in a relationship, you don't always need to talk because you know what each other are thinking.
    Also I love the video to this, it is simple but great!

    General CommentLike many of Meat's songs, it sounds like a not-so-subtle reference for some extremely passionate love making.

    When there's one thing two lovers want (sex), the tension in the air can be so thick that mere words can totally ruin the moment. "Tonight the conversation takes the fall" can back this up, as well as "I'll get the lights, you get that smile".

    I love Meat Loaf duets. His ladies always have such charged voices!
