lyrics

"WORDS, THEY FAIL" by David Guilbault

She tells me words fail her.
They can’t find their voice.
Thoughts inside her head can’t find their way.
Thinking in patterns
That only she knows.
What she really means she’s not ready to say.

My words come so easy,
Finding voice in the air.
Thoughts inside my head come crying out loud.
I listen for echoes,
For new things to know,
For ev’ry spoken truth to be found.

I try to hear.
She tries to tell.
But, words, they fail.

I don’t know what she’s saying.
She doesn’t say what she means.
Still we try and try to understand
What each one is thinking
In such diff’rent ways.
To know it like we know the touch of our hands.

I try to hear.
She tries to tell.
But, words, they fail.

She tells me words fail her.
They can’t find their voice.
Thoughts inside her head can’t find their way.
