"Words" as written by and Bobby/boyce Hart....
Speechless again at a loss for words
But they wouldn't be heard anyway would they
The minimum required what the offer is
And that's all you give
Stranded above all the friction here
Your motives aren't clear enough to see
I will be unstable
I'm not just a passerby
I hate sudden changes
Speechless again with no time to spare
Could you pretend that you care just once for me
At least for a while put your guards away
There's no one to blame
Words can't hear this silent ear
(Fear won't leave here first)
Certain sigh

Why frame time to time spent near
(Nearness loses sight)
Sight signed off

Words can't hear this silent ear
(Fear won't leave here first)
Certain sigh
Your words occur to me sometimes
Behind the reasons why we're here
And walk on a clear wire
Trapeze Jesus cautious and slow
So quick to lunge brain to tongue
To find I'm the only one
The only one that's fit to choose
Another side another tool
And what makes up your silver spoon
That makes you want to live again

    General CommentFuck this song requires a serious analysis but I'm drunk

    First of all I hate how everyone on songmeanings turns a song into a relationship. Some asshole will post below me and say that's what this is about.

    I think the first stanza is about speaking to a person in a position of power and having them ignore you.

    I pulled an allnighter on energy drinks after my parents threw me into some rehab program. The line I will be unstable stood out but soon enough I knew it didn't affect me personally.

    This is the meat and potatoes

    Ears don't speak and words don't hear. Fuck it doesn't make sense but the music makes it worthwhile.

    That is all.

    General CommentYour words occur to me sometimes. I interpret that line as spiritual. I don't want to elaborate further.

    General CommentWords can heal this silence - a prayer

    Your words occur to me sometimes - God speaking to us
    I hear "we learn" instead of align so we learn the reasons why we're hear

    The rest of it have a field day. My other comments are crap.

    General CommentJust listened

    Words can't heal this silent ear - basically Your words won't hear me (makes unstable reference make sense).

    Then your words occur to me.

    Dude can't hear but God got to him.

    That's life.

    Sight signed off another biblical reference

    signing off - Abes
