Baby take my hand and I'll take you higher
'Cause my one desire is you and I need you now
More than ever if it takes forever and I know
These things are things you've heard
But up 'til now they were only words

CHORUS:
Dancing on the lips of intimate strangers
Shallow like the city, now they're vivid like the sun
Blinding me with spirit
In the night my private soul can hear it
Common as the hummingbirds
But they were only words

Now I feel like a wise old man
I now understand all the hows, the whens, the whys
These thoughts are mine for the very first time
Love it springs, it blooms, eternal and true
It may sound like nothing new to you

Only words

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Here's hoping that we'll never break the silence
Here's hoping that we never run from ourselves
Here's hoping "can't" and "never", "not now"
And "gee it's time to go" are words we'll never know

CHORUS:
Dancing on the lips of intimate strangers
Oh Yeah! Now they're vivid like the sun
Blinding me with spirit
In the night my private soul can hear it
Common as the hummingbirds
But they were only words

CHORUS:
Dancin' on the lips of intimate strangers
Shallow like the city, now they're vivid like the sun
Blinding me with spirit
In the night my private soul can hear it
Common as the hummingbirds
Only words

Blinding me with spirit
In the night my private soul can hear it
Common as the hummingbirds
But they were only words
