Like A Brother

They're Only Words

by Carl Wilson

on Like A Brother (2000)

The promises I made When I was young, unafraid
I hurt so many hearts
And even my own could not escape
It comes to me now

I've seen (oh yeah), I've heard (I've heard)
And now I've finally learned
They're only words
They're only words
I've learned
I've pledged
I've burned
I've burned
And now the world has turned
They're only words
They're only words
Unless they're true

And when I took your hand
I thought we found wonderland
I wanted to be brave, oh I changed the world
But it's me who changed
It comes to me now

I've seen (oh yeah), I've heard (I've heard)
And now I've finally learned
They're only words
They're only words
I've learned
I've pledged
I've burned
I've burned
And now the world has turned
They're only words
They're only words
Unless they're true

They're only words (they're only words)
Unless they're true (unless they're true)
All these words

Show me once again
That lonely ends where love begins
You don't have to speak
Cos' its your eyes that I believe
I do believe

I've seen, I've heard (I've heard)
And now I've finally learned
They're only words
They're only words
I've learned
I've pledged
I've burned
And now
And now the world has turned
World has turned
They're only words
I've seen (oh yeah), I've heard (I've heard)
And now I've finally learned (I've learned)
They're only words
Unless they're true
