remembering the days,
we laughed and we cryed.
held you 'till morning,
and kissing your eyes.
remembering your lips,
when we first kissed,
and the beat my heart,
my heart it skipped.

its not the things you say, not the things you say,
that binde me to you,
and its not the thing you say, not the things you say,
that matter.

walk out to the ocean,
and stare at the sun.
and tears that were glistening,
have turned to sours.
if i could just hold you,
for the last time,
i'd scare of those demons,
and dry off your eyes.

its not the things you say, not the things you say,
that binde me to you,
and its not the thing you say, not the things you say,
that matter.

in my mind i can feel you coming,
in my mind i can feel you're near.

in my mind i can feel you coming,
home to me.

in my mind i can feel you coming,
in my mind i can feel you're near.

in my mind i can feel you coming,
home to me.

its not the things you say, not the things you say,
that binde me to you,
and its not the thing you say, not the things you say,
that matter.

i am still waiting,
waiting for you.

    General CommentAmazing song... I don't think enough people know about this Gem.
