About the words
The words have been around
Many hundreds of years.
They've been used and abused.
One may think they lost meaning,
Or maybe decreased in power,
Through the seasons been obsolete,
Some other time back in fashion,
They have been applauded,
They have been ridiculed.
Someone even suggested
They're so far from reality,
They should only be in books.
True, they were declaimed on stage,
Also showed off on the big screen,
Dancing on sheet music,
As well as on the air.
Wait a second, they are in the air...
The singer couldn't say the words,
So he wrote them down in a song.
But without words, there is no song,
There is no life, there is no world,
There's no humanity.
Even animal friends,
We know can't say the words
Many a time teach us
What those words really mean.
So now, my dearest friend,
Whatever people think
Of words I will tell you,
They are as pure and fresh today
As iced water from a glacier.
I won't hold back any longer
The words which for a little time
Wanted to come out of my heart :
I love you...
