Song Without Words

A pointed remark that gets under your skin like a splinter
Can work through the veins and permanently lodge in the brain
I wouldn’t want something I said, to hurt you and mess up your head
And so just for you I have written this song without words

You’d misunderstand if I said that it’s time you were leaving
You’d cry and I’d say that I didn’t mean leaving for good
When I say please don’t go away it doesn’t mean that I want you to stay
So you won’t get confused I have written this song without words

Todays words of wisdom will be chewed-up and spat out tomorrow
Just to twinkle from the roadside like ticker-tape after parade
I don’t want a place in the charts of the song as disposeable art
So without risk of failure I’ve written this song without words
