Using gentle words to shelter me.
Your words were like a dream
But dreams can never fool me..
Not that easily.
I acted so distant then
Didn't say goodbye before you left
But I was listening.
You'll fight battles far from me..
Far too easily
Save your tears cause I'll come back
I could hear that you whisper as you walked through that door
But still I swore to hide the pain,
When I turned back the pages
Shouting might of been the answer
What if I cried my eyes out and begged you not to depart.
But I now I am not afraid to say what's in my heart
Though a thousand words have never been spoken
They'll fly to you, crossing over the time
And distance holding you,
Suspended on silver wings.
And a thousand words
One thousand confessions.
Will cradle you, making all of the pain you feel,
Seem far away.. they'll hold you forever.
They dream isn't over yet
Though I often say I can't forget.
I still relive that day.
You've been there with me all the way...
I still hear you say,
"Wait for me, I'll write you letters"
I could see how you stand with your eyes to the floor.
But still I swore to hide the doubt.
When I turn back the pages
Anger might of been the answer.
What if I hung my head and said that I couldn't wait.
But now I strong enough to know it's not too late.
Cause a thousand words call out through the ages
They'll fly to you, even though I can't see
I know they're reaching you, suspended on silver wings
Oh a thousand words, one thousand embraces
Will cradle you..
Making all your weary days seem far away
They'll hold you forever.
Oh a thousand words (a thousand words)
Have never been spoken (Oh yeah)
They'll fly to you
They'll carry you home (Carry you home...)
And back into my arms...
Suspended on silver wings (On silver wings)
And a thousand words (Oooh)
Call out through the ages (Call through the ages)
They'll cradle you (Oh yeah)
Making all of the lonely years into only days (only days)
They'll hold you forever..
Ooohh.. a thousand words."
