Koda Kumi – A Thousand Words lyrics

I know that you're hiding things
Using gentle words to shatter me
If words were like a dream
Our dreams could never fall in
Not that easily

I acted so distant then
Didn't say goodbye before you left
But I was listening
You'll fight your battles far from me
Far too easily

Save your tears 'cause I'll come back
I could hear that you whispered as
You walked through that door
But still I swore
To hide the pain when I
Turned back the pages
Shouting out a breathy answer
What if I cried my eyes out and
Begged you not to part?

But now I'm not afraid
To sing what's in my heart...

'Cause thousand words
Call out through the ages
They'll fly to you
Even though I can't see
I know they're reaching you
Suspended on silver wings

Oh a thousand words
And a thousand embraces
Will cradle you
Making all of your weariness
Seem far away
They'll hold you forever

Oh a thousand words
Have never been spoken
They'll fly to you
They'll carry you on
And back into my arms
Suspended on silver wings

And a thousand words
Call out through the ages
They'll cradle you
Holding all of the loneliness
To only days
They'll hold you forever

A thousand words
