Smile an everlasting smile
A smile can bring you near to me
Don't ever let me find you gone
'Cause that would bring a tear to me

This world has lost it's glory
Let's start a brand new story
Now my love, right now
There'll be no other time
And I can show you how, my love

Talk in everlasting words
And dedicate them all to me
And I will give you all my life
I'm here if you should call to me

You think that I don't even mean
A single word I say

It's only words, and words are all I have
To take your heart away

You think that I don't even mean
A single word I say

It's only words, and words are all I have
To take your heart away
It's only words, and words are all I have
To take your heart away
It's only words, and words are all I have
To take your heart away

    Song FactThis used to be the favourite song of a radio announcer in South Africa, who used to play it often on his morning show. It turned out that it was very special to him and his girlfriend, who had a pet cat. He would play songs for the cat, using its human name! And he was involved in a serious car accident and hospitalised with appalling injuries. The radio station used fill-in announcers, hoping he'd recover. One night his girlfriend dreamt that he said to her that he was sorry, but he couldn't keep going any more; and in the dream she told him it was all right. He died that night, and the next day the stand-in announcers told everyone what had happened, crying on air and playing Words in various versions, over and over. Can't remember the year; decades ago.

    General CommentGreat song, and it sounds heartfelt when they sing "It's only words, and words all I have, to take your heart away." But when you think about it, why are there only words? How about some actions? The words will have more meaning if they're backed by actions.
