"Land of a Thousand Words" as written by and Scott Hoffman Jason Sellards....
Another constellation dies
Do what you want 'cause it's your own sky
Just call me when the phone stops ringing
Thanks for coming by
I'm just glad I'm on your good side
Where it's smoldering you're freezing
It's never all that easy to decide

This is the land of a thousand words
But it seems so few are worth the breath to say
Sit doubting looking after my own worth
And you just keep on saving the day
I'll try to stay but it's in vain when you're far
I'm on the run to wherever you are

And that's the nature of the chase
You fall so far behind you end in first place
Pass the torch this time we're running to each's own regret
There's no harm in playing hard to get
Boundlessness deceives me
But baby you may turn the corner yet

This is the land of a thousand words
But it seems so few are worth the breath to say
Sit doubting looking after my own worth
And you just keep on saving the day
I'll try to stay but it's in vain when you're far
I'm on the run to wherever you are

I'm not gonna do everything you say
Tried to stay but time is running out
But now I'm on my way
(to where ever you are)
I'm not gonna do everything you say
Tried to stay but time is running out
But now I'm on my way
(to where ever you are)
I'm not gonna do everything you say
Tried to stay but time is running out
But now I'm on my way
(to where ever you are)
I'm not gonna do everything you say
Tried to stay but time is running out
But now I'm on my way

    General CommentI understand the song to be about two people who are interested in each other, but let their ambitions get in the way. The singer is cool about it though, he seems to understand that is the nature of how things go, and he won't wait anymore, he's going to try his luck even with so much time passing and so much between them. But that's just my take, I don't know.

    General CommentI agree with katra, in a way. I think it's a story of two people who are interested in eachother but some things are in the way - ambition, distance, "playing hard to get". Great song, I love the vocals by Jake and Ana...fantastic.

    General CommentI agree with Katra people too busy with their own lives to let each other in, "boundlessness deceives me"...the idea that so many options are available that to choose one would limit one's experience so just keep playing the field never settling down to experience the deeper levels of love. I luuuuuv this song! Gorgeous melody and bittersweet lyrics--bound to be a classic torch song.

    General CommentIt seems that in keeping with the theme of the song noone has said anything. I think that sums it up.
