Words

We said some things we didn’t mean, but hidden somewhere in between was the truth
And if you’d only listen to me, maybe you would hear that I’m scared, too
Superimpositions from a past that I just can’t control for you
Play on a machine you keep where life left less unbroken parts removed

And all the words you’re putting in my mouth
Are keep mine from coming out

So what you missed was, “Baby, I love you”
And what got lost was, “Baby, I need you…
Here for me, too”

We do our best to dodge a fate unchanged for stubborn hearts not letting go
Assuming what we know is best allows us to always be in control
I’m running out of words to say, but they only seem to get in the way anymore
Everyone can have their say, but at the end of the day, the decision’s yours

But all the words they’re putting in your head
Are keeping mine from sinking in

So what you missed was, “Baby, I love you”
And what got lost was, “Baby, I need you…
Here for me”

You better watch what you say, ’cause words can go a long way
You may not get the chance to take them back once all the damage is made
You better watch what you say, ’cause words can go a long way
You may not get the chance to take them back once all the damage is made
But they might be what saves us

So what you missed was, “Baby, I love you”
And what got lost was, “Baby, I need you…
Here for me, too”
