Lyrics

Words Don't Matter (Words and music by Alan Gillis)


Verse 1
Words don't seem to matter much
I see them in her eyes
Thoughts she'd never dare to breathe
But longs to share
And so it is at it must be with us forever
Never certain if it's love
Or just reflection of my selfish dreams
I'm seeing in her eyes

Bridge

Friends, but never lovers
Though I can't deny the thoughts that cross my mind
And when you think it over
Where does friendship end?
There is no line where love begins and so I find
that

Verse 2
Words don't matter much
I see them in her eyes
Thoughts she'd never dare to breathe
But always there
And so we live our lives apart and yet together
I'm not certain if it's love
Or just reflection of my selfish dreams
I'm seeing in her eyes

Repeat bridge

Words don't matter much
Words don't matter much
Words don't matter much
