Lyrics

I'd be writing all day, if it weren't for the words
I'd find something to say, if it weren't for the words
It's the words that give me trouble
I'd be alright, if it weren't for the words

I could pick up the phone, if it weren't for the words
I could talk all day long, if it weren't for the words
It's the words that make me stumble
I'd be doing alright, if it weren't for the words

But I've got nothing
Stuck without a thought in my head
Drumming my fingers against the table
Tapping on my cigarette

You could never tell a lie, if it weren't for the words
Or say goodbye, if it weren't for the words
It's the words that always hurt me
I'd be doing alright, if it weren't for the words

But I've got nothing
Haven't got a thought in my head
Drumming my fingers on the table
Tapping on my cigarette

You could never tell a lie, if it weren't for the words
Or sing a sad goodbye, if it weren't for the words
It's the words that come to nothing
I'd be doing alright, if it weren't for the words
I'd be alright, if it weren't for the words
I'd be just fine, if it weren't for the words
