Song Lyric Sunday 24/2/2019

It is  Sunday again and  time  for  SLS. Helen Vahdati’s This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time,  Song Lyric Sunday.  The prompt for this week is Harmony/Melody/Music, so let’s light it up, set it off, kick it into gear, As Jim at newepicauthor  said “let it rip, start jamming, let the dogs out, release the hounds and get the party started.”

Rules  and Pingback here 

Okay I want  to play  but  I don’t have  much time  so  I am going  straight in  with  Extreme  an actual American Rock Band  though from this  beautiful, gentle  and truly gorgeous close harmony. The song  More  than words. 

“More Than Words”

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 knewHow 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”
More than words,
More than words

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

La di da, da di da, di dai dai da
More than words

La di da, da di da, di dai dai da
More than words

La di dai, dai dai, di dai dai da
La la di da da da

La di dai dai da
La la da da
More than words

Oooh uuuuh uuuh

More than words

    One of my favorites! I thought the guy with the long hair was soooo cute! ❤️ Did you ever see the version with Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black?

    They both have long hair, so to clarify – i am referring to the guitarist.

    What a lovely song. The acoustic guitar by Nuno Bettencourt is fabulous along with the vocals by Gary Cherone and the harmony from Bettencourt.

    The guitar accompaniment on that tune has become rather iconic in the world of finger-style guitar. Hard to imagine the song played any other way. Great choice.
