Thought I could rule the universe with my words
Speaking lines like poetry desperate to be heard
Thought I could make you see the error of your ways
But stubbornly you refused to change

All the breath I wasted spinning hidden webs
When I could have reached out and held you tight instead
All the letters written, all the arguments I won
Stacked like empty boxes, my words and I alone

Thought love was a puzzle to work out in my head
Stayed up searching for the missing pieces to be said
Thought I could make you stay with the answers that I found
To you they were only meaningless sounds


If I could trade my words for a chance to touch your face
I?d promise to be silent till my soul knows what to say

All the petty differences I could have left undone
