Words & music by Vonda Shepard

Every light shines on you tonight
Making a fool out of me
Why won't this love leave me alone
All of the people in this smoky room
Crowded with faces I know
I feel them watching me watch you

(Chorus)

Say the words
Say the words
Say the words
Say the words so I can leave...it's over

Your eyes are deeper
They are worthy of many words
But none I can conjure up will do for you
I shouldn't see you
'Cause I know my own motivation
It's taking too long for this love
To leave me alone

(Chorus)

Say the words
Say the words
Say the words
Say the words so I can leave...it's over

(Bridge)
Oh love, you worry me
When you say you'll wait forever
I have another life
We just cannot be together

(Chorus)

Say the words
Say the words
Say the words
Say the words, say them for me
I need to hear you say...it's over
Say the words
Say the words
Say the words so I can leave...it's over
