[Verse 1]
Better than words
But more than a feeling
Crazy in love
Dancing on the ceiling
Everytime we touch
I'm all shook up
You make me wanna *sigh*
How deep is your love?
God only knows, baby

[Chorus]
Ooh, I don't know how else to sum it up,
'Cause words ain't good enough
There's no way I can explain your love, no
Ooh, I don't know how else to sum it up,
'Cause words ain't good enough
I can't explain your love, no
It's better than words (better than words)
Better than words

[Verse 2]
You drive me crazy
Someone like you
Always be my baby
Best I ever had
Hips don't lie
You make me wanna *uff*
One more night
Irreplaceable, yeah
Crazy, we're crazy

[Chorus]
Ooh, I don't know how else to sum it up,
'Cause words ain't good enough
There's no way I can explain your love, no
Ooh, I don't know how else to sum it up,
'Cause words ain't good enough
I can't explain your love, no

[Bridge]
Every one tries (they try)
To see what it feels like
But they'll never be right
'Cause it's better

One more time...
Better than words...Yeah

[Chorus]
Ooh, I don't know how else to sum it up,
'Cause words ain't good enough
There's no way I can explain your love, no
Ooh, I don't know how else to sum it up,
'Cause words ain't good enough
I can't explain your love, no
It's better than words
It's better than words

    The meaning of this song is talking about how the boys in the band one direction are in love with this girl and her love is better than words. They are so in love that cannot even describe her love. Its better than words. She is so so so lucky.

    The meaning of this song is that these boys (aka one direction) are crazy in love and every time they touch they get a massive, indescribable feeling and this feeling is better than any words. This girl drives them crazy and makes these boys' lives all shook up. Their love for this girl is better than words. They think nobody in the world can feel this way because words aren't good enough to describe they way the girl makes them feel.

    It just simply means that love can't express through words, you can't express your feelings through. You can't explain your love. how can he/she knows that you love him/her? all in all, you can't can't help it to express your feelings with just words, even though words are powerful, how can we say if someone really loves us. everything about love should be describe as a feeling not words if you truly love someone you just don't tell she loves me more than anything, how can they understand if you're truly not showing it right?
