Saying "I love you"
Is not the words
I want to hear from you
It's not that I want you
Not to say, but if you only knew
How easy it would be to show me how you feel

More than words
Is all you have to do
To make it real
Then you wouldn't have to say
That you love me
'Cause I'd already know

What would you do
If my heart was torn in two?
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real

What would you say
If I took those words away?
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying "I love you"

It's more than words
It's more than what you say
It's the things you do
Oh yeah

It's more than words
It's more than what you say
It's the things you do
Oh yeah

Now that I've tried to
Talk to you and make you understand
All you have to do
Is close your eyes
And just reach out your hands
And touch me
Hold me close don't ever let me go

More than words
Is all I ever needed you to show
Then you wouldn't have to say
That you love me
'Cause I'd already know

What would you do
If my heart was torn in two?
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real

What would you say
If I took those words away?
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying I love you

    General CommentWestlife brought this song to me and I love it. It made so much sense to me especially when the guy I had a crush on told me he loved me when I gave him an apple.It's good to hear the words but they should be truly felt!!!

    General Commentah for that idiot who wrote about boybands doing cover songs... that is just stupid. not only boybands do cover songs.... most artists do. eric clapton covered this song, rock bands like the vines cover heaps of songs.... new found glory cover songs.. limp bizkit cover songs... all genre's cover songs. even rap etc.
    so don't just make stupid comments like this
    anyways i think this song is beautifully done by westlife

    General Commenti only heard the extreme's version last month, but it was westlife who i first heard it from. i love this song! i know that people would rather artists release their own songs, but why bother when there are amazing songs like this in the world which just aren't getting heard by many people!

    General CommentFor people's knowledge, Westlife used this song as an acapella to help get their record deal, so the song is important to them, and decided to record it for the album to see what it sounded like. Kian plays the guitar too on it.
