Words > No Words

He says that he'll change
And he's trying, it's true
But let us be honest
He'll never be you

I've given him chances
I've given him time
I've given him everything
But it's the end of the line

The next steps I'll take
I'm not sure where they'll lead
Or how I will take them
But I know what I need

I need a man, an equal
A partner through and though
And if my senses have not deceived me
That partner is you

Yet you keep your distance
For this reason or that
I do not know why
Which makes me crazy as a bat

But for you, I will wait
And try not to push
Because in your presence
My heart turns to mush

I know, without words
That you yearn for me too
And yet I still wonder
How can it be true

All I want is a chat
The two of us alone
Things we should not
Speak of on the phone

But maybe you aren't ready
Or you don't know what you want
Or your scared of the future
Or you want to but you can't

All these things
Your words could say
I'm ready to listen
Every single day
