Words are like a long and winding road
They all look the same in the dark
Listening for the sounds to run awry
But you can keep this up all night
There's more here than what you have to say
Truth alone won't set you free now, baby

Forget love, I just want you to make sense to me tonight
Forget words, I just want you to make sense to me tonight

All is said for the greater good
But good don't last now like it should
Do you know a thing about my life?
You've been in it, but told me to be silent
Stop your tongue and turn this ship around
For only this can be your loudest sound

Forget love, I just want you to make sense to me tonight
Forget words, I just want you to make sense to me tonight

Is this too hard?
Am I asking so much?
Is this impossible for you, love?
Love's been lost, and I've lost too much
I think before you make him say I do
I do

Forget love, I just want you to make sense to me tonight
Forget words, I just want you to make sense to me tonight

    General CommentI love this song. . . sort of strange and beautiful. But I think that the final "I do" is supposed to be "adieu", because it alludes to it in the booklet that talks about the meaning of the songs.

    General CommentThis is a such a superb song. This is about a man in a relationship with a women and the fact that she always refers to there love in pale of everything else is making the man in the relationship almost crazy, as if nothing's making sense to him. And it's as if she should know better, because she has gone this far with him

    General CommentI think it might be
    "Forget love, I just want you to make sense to me tonight
    Forget us, I just want you to make sense to me tonight"
    "Or loneliness could be your loudest sound"
    and "Love turned loss, and I've lost too much"

    Emaildump, I agree on the chorus correction
    "Forget love, I just want you to make sense to me tonight
    Forget us, I just want you to make sense to me tonight"
