Soundtracks – 1000 Words lyrics

As sung by Jade from Sweetbox in the North American release of FFX-2

I know that you’re hiding things
Using gentle words to shelter me
Your words were like a dream
But dreams could never fool me
Not that easily

I acted so distant then
Didn’t say goodbye before you left
But I was listening
You fight your battles far from me
Far to 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 turn back the pages

Shouting might have been the answer
What if I cried my eyes out
And begged you not to depart...
But now I’m not afraid to say
What’s in my heart

Cause a thousand words called 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
One thousand embraces
will cradle you
Making all the weary you feel
seem far away
They'll hold you forever...

The dream isn't over yet
Though I often say I can't forget
I still relive that day
You've been there with me all the way
I still hear you say

Oh a thousand words
have never been spoken
they'll fly to you
And carry you home
Back into my arms
Suspend on silver wings (on silver wings)

And a thousand words
Called out through the ages
They'll cradle you
Make all of the lonly you feel seem only days
they'll hold you forever.....

Oh a thousand words..........
