trees lyrics – curt smith

to tv screens and complex books
my inner world of reason looks
to try to feel or touch the things you see
with a face and voice so serious
words so detached in spite of us
you overjustify how you feel

and every line makes perfect sense
you’ve long rehe*rs*d this circ*mstance
words don’t say enough
silence is your best defense
words don’t say enough

so many years the time has flown
the ups and downs the world we’ve grown
accustomed to
has given us our share
but i never thought we’d come to this
where face to face we can’t exist
there’s no use trying to find what’s not there

you think you’ve had the final say
but that was over yesterday
words don’t say enough
words come cheap so don’t explain
words don’t say enough

speak the language of love
tell it straight from the heart
take a chance and open up
let the message ring clear
you’ve got nothing to fear
say it like it is

open up your heart and mind
thoughts and feelings realign
you’ve got yours and i’ve got mine

enough’s enough, enough’s enough
enough’s enough
so take a chance and open up

speak the language of love
tell it straight from the heart
take a chance and open up
let the message ring clear
you’ve got nothing to fear
tell it like it is

open up your heart and mind
thoughts and feelings realign
you’ve got yours and i’ve got mine
words don’t say enough
what is wrong with your life
take a look down deep inside
love is going back in time
words don’t say enough

speak the language of love
tell it straight from the heart
words don’t say enough

to tv screens and complex books
my inner world of reason looks
with a face and voice so serious
you overjustify how you feel
