The Words that I Want

© Midnight Island Music

Sometimes I think I forget how to talk
The words that I want come so slow
There's nothing like time when it goes by the clock
And me with so little to show
I can't write you letters I can't use the phone
I can't think to know what to do
I'm sitting here speechless alone in this room
The words that I want come from you

Just look at that sun going down in the sky
Gold and more gold in that blue
There's no way to say how it looks to my eye
The words that I want come from you

The slow autumn leaves are just starting to turn
And friends always want talking to
The few words I need I can easily learn
The words that I want come from you

When the circling sky starts to climb from the south
And show us the heavens we knew
Like clay on my eyelids, your mouth on my mouth
When the words that I want come from you
