When you've given all you've got
And you're feeling overcome
When your back's against the wall
There's no one left to call, call me

When your head is so full
And you feel misunderstood
And the fear is coming fast
You think your time has passed
You say why me, why me?

If you want it
You know I've got it
Words they just get in the way
If you want it
All you have got
Words they just get in the way
Words they just get in the way
In the way

When you're feeling like you've lost
When all your hope is gone
And the bridge above the river
Is only the beginning of your fall (great lyric!)

If you want it
All you have got
Words they just get in the way
If you want it
You know I've got it
Words they just get in the way
Words they just get in the way

Sing it too me now
All my life in the way
ABC all the way (I think)
Since I was a child
Words they drive me wild

    General CommentPretty straight forward. sometimes words just have no meaning, as much as you would like them to. Words have a way of confusing a person more than actions. People never say waht they really mean so you have to crawl through the garbage that people feed you (words) to find out what they actually mean
