"Words & Music" as written by and Sylvie Lewis Sondre Lerche Vaular....
You be words, and I'll be music
Ain't you heard, that's how they do it?
You're a poem when you're on your own
I'll try not to get in your way
But of all the poems I have known, baby, you give me something to say

I'll be words, and you'll be music
I concur, I can't refuse it
You're a sad little tune by yourself
So lovely I wanna sing along
If there's one thing I know I can tell, when we get together we're a song

Whenever I'm with you it's true it's
Everything you say and do it's
Words and music, you and I

Listen here, I've gotta say it
It's so clear, the way we should play it
I will carry you, together we'll float through the sky
We can marry too, together just look at us fly

Whenever I'm with you it's true it's
Everything you say and do it's
Words and music, you and I

When we fight it's rock and roll
When we make it up, it's soul
And in the meanwhile, freestyle, play-by-ear, improvise
It's clear we go together, it's been like this forever
You and I and words and music

Whenever I'm with you it's true it's
Everything you say and do it's true
You and I are, you and I are
You and I are words and music

    General CommentI think this song is about music itself and how fun making music can be. It can be really hard to make music sometimes. Like sometimes you have a gorgeous piece of music, but you can't think of any lyrics to go to it, and other times you have an amazing lyric, but the music just doesn't fall into place. With this song I think that both easily went together and it was just a super fun experience. I love this song too. =]
