A Thousand Words Lyrics

by Savage Garden

We stumble in a tangled web
Decaying friendships almost dead
And hide behind a mask of lies
We twist and turn and we avoid
All hope of salvage now devoid
I see the truth inside your eyes

So take all this noise to your brain
And send it back again
I'll bare the cost, shed my skin
Call you up and then
I'll say the words out loud

You can resurrect a thousand words
To deceive me more and more
A thousand words will give the reason
Why I don't need you anymore

Time manipulates your heart
Preconceptions torn apart
Begin to doubt my state of mind
But I won't go down on what I said
I won't retract convictions read
I may perplex but I'm not blind

So take all this noise to your brain
Send it back again
I'll bear the cost, shed my skin
Call you up and then
I'll say the words out aloud

You can resurrect a thousand words
To deceive me more and more
A thousand words will give the reason
Why I don't need you anymore

I'll say the words out loud
I'll say a thousand words or more
Manipulation fabrication
Conversation annihilation
I'll say a thousand words or more
Damnation frustration elevation procreation
I'll say a thousand words our more

You can resurrect a thousand words
To deceive me more and more
A thousand words will give the reason
Why I don't need you anymore

You can resurrect a thousand words
To deceive me more and more
A thousand words will give the reason
Why I don't need you anymore
