Those lonely eyes they stare at me in silence
I don't know what to do
So much hurt
So much arched back defiance
It's gonna break something soon
No one loves the way you love
But love could suffocate from the weight that's bearing down on us
If I could just reach inside you
Hold and hide you I would baby I would
If I could just mend what's broken with one word spoken
I would say whatever it took
Words are never enough that much is true
So I'm leaning on what love can do
Lean on me whenever you need to
Let all those tears rain down
I believe that love can see this thing through
Even if we can't see how
No one feels the pain you feel
All I know is love can heal what nothing else can heal
If I could just reach inside you
Hold and hide you I would baby I would
If I could just mend what's broken with one word spoken
I would say whatever it took
Words are never enough that much is true
So I'm leaning on what love can do
Leaning on the mystery that's holdin me and you
Baby that's all I can do
Leaning on what love can do

SOLO

Words are never enough that much is true
So I'm leaning on what love can do
