The Words

I've got the melody and I've found all the right chords
I've got a love song for you
but I can't find the words
To tell you how I feel
and to show you what you mean to me
To sweep you off your feet because that's what you do to me

But the words they won't show up
I guess they know that they would never be enough
So the words they just don't come
Still I keep on looking and I don't plan on giving up

If I only had a phrase
the perfect little rhyme
I wouldn't hold it back
No, I would not be shy

I'd put it in a song
And I'd write it in the sky
I'd sing it from the rooftop
Whenever you walked by


I hope I think of something
Before my time runs out
Like the Sonnets from the Portuguese
or something equally devout

This is a very sweet number - and I like getting to see your fingering and frets. Nice!
